I know for a FACT that I am very blessed with many great friends and a truly
Loving Family! Such a warm feeling. Who needs gifts?
Well, Mr. Brown Socks said the little desk below is a gift. He actually said it was my Valentine’s Day gift.
Yesterday I found myself at the last day of an estate sale..you know the day.. people are scurrying in and out picking up furniture and other treasures they bid on the first day. It’s also the day that prices are slashed in half. With a little sweet talking I got them to come down a little less than half by taking a chance it would still be there the end of the third day. It was! The wood is fruitwood with a cherry veneer. I love a good bargain, don’t you?
I’m extra excited about this desk you see because it will be the start of some much needed changes. You may not know this about me, but I “think” things
to death through. We now have our computer in a small office which also serves as a room for a single guest. Our computer sits on top of the ugliest sturdiest desk you have ever laid eyes on. It’s an old, blonde school desk. Let’s just leave it at that!
When we built our house we had one grandson and now we have three. We really could use a double bed in this room ……So…….
We will be doing some flip flopping. Our
ugly sturdy computer desk will more than likely be moved to the downstairs guest room where we will purchase a queen size mattress. With a new son in law who is 6’4” we decided the pretty antique double bed with the sweet little footboard would not be appreciated by Dan when he and Jamie come for a visit.
I can just see the poor man with his feet dangling over trying to get comfortable.
We are moving this antique bedroom set upstairs to what was the office/single bed Room.
As you can see I was still “thinking” about draperies for this room as well as a new spread.
I’m really excited about making these changes and getting two rooms fixed up.
My new little desk will be the beginning of some fun and positive changes in our home.
I' am picking the desk up this afternoon and hope to start making changes soon. You know you will be the first to see the changes that will occur!
Today I’m joining in on the fun with:
Sarah at A Beach Cottage. She’s hosting Good Life Wednesdays.
I hope you’ll join me over there to see what other bloggers have to share!
Until next time ~~~~ Be happy!
