Join me on my quest to RESTYLE, REPURPOSE and RECYCLE preloved furniture and home decor into treasures to be RELOVED. Along the way I'll show you how to REDECORATE your home using Vintage, French Provincial, Shabby Chic and Cottage styling. (Formerly Knot All That I Seam.com)
Look at this absolutely perfect space. If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I have this corner in my lounge/dining room that I have always thought of as awkward and under used.
Here is the last picture I took of this space a few weeks ago.
I hardly ever use the desk and the display cabinet was just filling a bare corner.
I thought if I could place a large narrow table there, I could use it as a desk for myself, as well as a work space for the kids homework or iPads or sewing. The list goes on.
So I sold my white country style desk and the corner cabinet, leaving hubby to hopefully build me a table. I knew he had some skills as he had build a "walk the plank" and "hook toss" for my son's birthday party a few weeks ago.
And so after Hubby did some Googling, drafting, measuring, purchasing the timber, and some sawing, drilling and screwing, this is my brand new desk ...
I love it!
I think he did an amazing job and I am so proud of him.
It is EXACTLY what I wanted!
I just need to sand and stain my new desk and it will be perfect. Plus add a few pretties on the wall and top and it will be a very welcoming and usable space.
I'll keep you posted on my progress now all the hard work has been done. ;)
