Yes, this little desk is mightily worn and ragged, but there is still life there. You know I’m a sucker for the unloved in furniture, especially when it’s made of wood. Funny thing is my teen daughter was driving to earn driving hours, and I had my older son hop out and grab it. Good kids. haha.

This vintage gem was tucked up on the top shelf with other wood items surrounding it. It may not be pretty now, but it will be. tee hee. With all the changes in our media in today’s world, magazines aren’t quite as numerous as they once were.

Also, I am by no means against pink in any form, however, it doesn’t quite match my farmhouse/Nordic/French/cottage/industrial style. And…just so you know, this isn’t the first pink revival I’ve done. Do you remember my pink

The funny thing is that I have seriously backed off my furniture projects for more reason than one. However, I needed to fulfill a requirement and this would fit the bill. It has damage, but

In the picture below, this was what I saw at the thrift store. I first thought that it actually was a pretend play grill set based on the fact that it was sitting on that cart. Because of that I actually walked past it thinking we didn’t need one of those. However, I came back around to

It pays to hang onto things sometimes, don’t you think?Β I’ve had this cutie tucked under my desk for quite some time. It has served us well for a year or so aiding my in homeschooling my children. Now, I felt time for it to become a cottage style stool with cozy fun.
