A few months ago I purchased a desk at a garage sale. The idea was for the desk to go in my youngest daughter's newly moved into bedroom. The desk itself has good bones. It only cost my $15 dollars at the sale. It does however need some work. My initial thought was to just paint it white and maybe stick on some new hardware and call it a day.
However, my friend, Karen over at Strictly Simple Style (www.strictlysimplestyle.blogspot.com) offered to help me out. She's all about making things look great while not breaking the bank. I've sent her a few photos of the desk and am awaiting her suggestions. I'll be updating my progress on the desk, right here. For the record, let me state, I'm not Martha Stewart. I've got great ideas/visualization (at least in my humble opinion,) however something is usually lost in the translation/actual work in progress. This should be fun and I'm looking forward to working with Karen on this little project. Be sure to check out her blog- you'll be glad you did. It's chock full of great tips, how to's and ideas on how to make the most of your home.
