    When I win the lottery, I am so having you come to my house and help me gut it! I love everything you do! Can’t wait for a catch up tomorrow night if you are still up for it! Talk to you soon!

      Oh, you don’t have to win the lottery! That desk was $10! You just need to start hoarding like me, and I’ll help you!

    love the desk makeover and the fabric colour on the chair is awesome. By the way… i wasn’t singing Lionel Ritchie… I was singing Adelle’s new song. My radio station combined the two songs together and it was hilarious. Thanks for getting it back in my head.

      So true… maybe Lionel needs to move over for some Adele “Hello” in my head? Thank you so much for your compliments, Bette. I love that chair colour too. Jewel tones are starting to stand out to me now.

    I adore your desk makeover. It reminds me of the one in our house that used to be a mid century sewing machine table (it was a lot of work removing the heavy sewing machine from inside the cabinet but worth it). I love snail mail too and always write my clients a hand written thank you note after their interior design is complete. Love that stationery.

      The stationery is wonderful, isn’t it? I love snail mail. It’s such a thrill to find a hand-addressed envelope in the mailbox. It’s why I won’t give up on Christmas cards, either. And thank you so much for your kind words, Mary Beth. I love my little writing space.

      Thank you, Sagan! I’ve loved putting this desk together. The little note cards have inspired me to send along a few little pieces of “snail mail” to friends.

    This desk is so pretty, I love the color you painted it and the new knobs… you gave it a whole new look. The way you decorated it with accessories, the chair and pillow is perfect, too! I am working on my home office right now and it really is just so nice to have a creative space!

    You chose the perfect shade to repaint the desk. I love it! I recently re did my home office and it makes such a difference in my day! Yes I did read “Hello” in Lionel Richie’s voice lol. AND now I have Adele’s new song in my head. πŸ˜‰
