Farewell Cute Little Drop Front Vintage Writing Desk

I restyled this writing desk 3 years ago (original post here) and it is still one my favourite pieces of furniture. I don't use it as a writing desk, more for storage and show in the entryway. 

It was originally all timber, till I painted it white.

I loving distressed the edges, followed by 2 clear coats of wax.

And added super cute turquoise polkadot contact to the drawer and inside shelves.

Or yeah, and added this inspiring little saying to the inside of the drop down.

With it's original vintage hardware.

And key.

And beautiful Queen Anne legs.

Did I mention all that storage?

And now it is time for her to go to a new home. I have something else for this little space which I will be sharing with you shortly. :)

Little Girls Frozen Bedroom

My daughter's Frozen bedroom restyle is complete. 

Here is her previous Frozen bedroom ...

And now ...

I recently made the pink and white bed canopy which you can see here

Her new bed finally arrived and we both love it.

I added her name in white wooden letters to the bedhead.

The Frozen quilt cover was a birthday present.

And so were the cute Ana and Elsa plush dolls.

Her Frozen costumes are kept in her Disney Princess wardrobe.


The murals on either side of her bed are scene setters from her birthday party.

The plush Olaf and Sven are technically mine, but on loan. ;)

And I almost forgot. I repainted her walls from blue to Dulux Natural White to match the rest of the house.

And replaced her blue curtains with pink ones.  

My little Frozen fan is very happy with her new look room, and so am I.

White Vintage Sideboard Restyled

I got this sideboard about a year ago and have finally got around to restyling it. I hate to brag, but it turned out so beautiful. Don't you think?

Before ...


After two coats of white chalk paint and two coats of clear wax.

Gorgeous vintage legs.

Light sanding to create an aged effect.

Original cutlery drawer lined with vintage music sheets.

All drawers lined with vintage music sheets.

Original vintage hardware.

Claw foot feet.

Shelf storage on both sides.

I'm so tempted to keep this for myself! Seeing the gorgeous original hardware on this sideboard has inspired me to put the original hardware back on my sideboard. After I putty up all the holes, I'll show you how it looks!
