So, I had this dingy desk. I know it belonged to my mother, and it may have belonged to her grandfather before that. The point is, it's old, and it has been in the family for a while. And it was looking its age. I didn't want to paint it; thus, I hit upon an idea. I would create a look that suited me and was in honor of my mother who got me started on crafting. She passed away years ago, but I think she would love this desk!
Sanded down top:
The mostly finished product (it needs to be clear coated a couple more times!):
The bottom left drawer is Alice in Wonderland
, middle left is colors!, top left is pieces of old singer manuals, middle is a bit of everything, top right is more colors, middle right is Trixie Belden
, bottom right and top are a collage of things that are either sentimental to me or just interesting.
And, a close up of the bottom edge; I put a tape measure on it so that I can measure hassle free!
Comments and criticisms welcome! This was my first try. I hope to find a chair that will fit in that desk that I can decorate to match!
