I'm actually thankful for this Reverb 10 prompt because I have been wanting to share this something I "made" with you for quite some time. It's amazing how some things get away from me.
Remember when I told you about some home improvement/reclaiming my space projects I was doing here and here? Well, one of the projects was completely DIY'ing a desk makeover!
I bought a plain desk (which was originally a dresser) off Craigslist.com.
Then, I sanded it down....and by I, I do mean me.
Next, Little Sister Chicken Wing and I painted the body and drawers with enamel semi-gloss black paint from Lowe's, all while jamming out to a killer playlist on her MacBook.
Then, after letting it all dry, hitting it up with a second coat, and letting that dry, I had to wait on my new hardware, which I purchased from an amazing company that was perfect for my budget.
Then, I installed the hardware.
Finally, I had a beautiful, completely transformed work of art to aid me in my home office endeavors! It truly was a labor of love, and my first "major" DIY project, but I absolutely loved it. Not only did I get to stretch my creative muscle, but I also got to teach Little Sister Chicken Wing a valuable lesson - men are great to have around, but you don't need them for every little thing. Sisters are doing it for themselves!
As far as what I would like to make but haven't had time to create, I would love to handcraft gifts for people and I would love to make this ruffle wreath at some point in my life. Let's face it - it's gorgeous and ruffly, and I love it!
Until next time,
