My New Office - Up Close


Here it is! I still want to find an old thrift shop chair to paint and recover to use at my desk, but this chair will do for now.

Remember where this project started from?

I am so happy it is finally finished!

I painted and distressed the desk and bookcase. Furniture around here gets a lot of use, so I wanted it not to show if it gets nicked or scratched!






I love this desk! I think the grain on top is beautiful!

Your room turned out Fantastic. Your husband did a wonderful job on the furniture.

Where did your basket come from?

What a great room! You did such a nice job, the distressing is all done perfectly. Now you won't have to worry about all the little bumps and bruises furniture gets. Trust me, I understand that, we have the same issue here.
Great job!

After you distress your furniture...do you put any sort of top coat on it? I have thought about painting my kitchen cabinets and distressing them...but am worried about them in the kitchen with heat-humidity-etc...any suggestions or thoughts?
