New purchase, new project


In keeping with my new 'not so big' philosophy I've been searching for quirky, smaller, useful items to finish the job of furnishing the house. My latest score is this lovely old desk, which I intend to use to replace our existing vile A Mart number. My plan is to re-paint the legs and drawer fronts white and possibly re-paint the drawer unit in a lighter green. 

The Gas Man isn't sold on the idea but he is warming to it, especially once the desk received some compliments from family this afternoon. My vision is a simple desk which houses just the computer, a lovely lamp and stationery in the drawers. All the other assorted junk that is living on our desk right now (including a soccer trophy from 1991) is just going to have to find itself a new home. Wish me luck!

I looked at the legs of that desk and thought they may be nice to string some fairy lights around...

loads of potential! I have an old "telephone" table that I want to redo. It's got a drawer and a built in seat next to it...

Ooh, you need to check out the Salvo's near Nutrimetics/Hyperdome. They have some interesting vintage furniture.
