Desk makeover

...this desk has lovely bones that i picked up at a yard sale...
(i could not resist!)
...even though, then, i didn't know where i would place it...

...before and after pictures...



...the fun begins!


...finished...



...and in place in the dressing room...

...frilly stuff on top...



...this is used mostly for storage...
...i used rosebud wallpaper for the bottoms of the drawers...
...and store tableclothes in it...


...i found four yds of toile at a thrift shop REALLY cheap...
- i was de-lighted!

...i got three 53" squares out of it and consider it my bargain of the year...
...and looks terriffic outdoors!



...blessedness!

You find the absolute best furniture at yard sales and thrift stores. You have to be in PA or Ohio, or some place like that!

Love the transformation...especially with the "frilly" stuff on top. Like the toile, too.
