This summer this is how it all started. I picked it up at a Garage Sale . It was in nice cosmetic condition but the darn thing was not strong enough to endure being in a house w/ my 2 boys and I. Let's be honest, you know when a 5 yr. old says "mommy, can I play on Nick Jr.com that means that there will be leaning on the desk, bumping and who knows what else...But I saw it's potential and snagged it up anyways =)
It sat in the garage for a couple of months until I finally was motivated enough to start putting it back together. Something a little E6000 helped with.
After a couple of days of being glued and clamped it together I brought it in the house.
I was still not happy w/ anything about this area at all. It just spells CLUTTER. So, I tried to make it better
I think I might of slightly successed. I lub clocks. The tick tock is zen to my ears =) candles, vase to complete the area? I still didn't think so and had to make another final change (at least till after the holidays).
I painted the desk black to match the vintage dresser re-do and added the same glass knobs to keep it all cohesive and to save on unnecesary costs of buying more knobs... 'Tis the season for Christmas gifts not new dresser knobs, I keep telling myself =)
So, what do you think? any suggestions or tips?
Thank you for visiting!!
