In the dinning room is a little shelf which I've been wanting to replace with a sideboard or dresser of some kind. The shelf itself is perfectly functional, but it seems too small for the space. I've looked and looked for something to replace it, without much luck.
After rearranging the girls bedroom, which involved taking the bunk bed apart to use as two separate single beds there was no available floor space for Ms. Emily's beautiful desk. We moved the desk to the middle of the living room where it sat for days on end while I contemplated what to do.
I can tell you it looked silly sitting in the middle of the room and quickly became a frustration not to mention a big roadblock. In pure desperation one morning, I moved it over in front of that little shelf in the dinning room just to get it out of the way.
To say I had an "Ah-Huh" moment would be putting it mildly. Nearly tripping over myself, and stubbing my toes not once but twice in my hast to complete the switch I was giddy with relief.
I was a little worried the desk would take up too much of our walking space but it seems to be working out just fine.
I've always love this desk . . .
The top is scratch up and it's looking a little rough . . .
But look at the detail. . . the curved drawers . . .
And those legs!
**sigh** so pretty.
Ms. Emily is loving it too!
She now has her very own homework space with easy access to mom!
Now begins my campaign for paint.
Don't you think she would look like a million bucks painted white with oil bronzed drawer pulls and a little distressing in just the right places?
I just have to convince Ms. Emily.
Wish me luck!
I'll be linking up to these fun parties:
