Step It Up...The Desk

My next room in need of an update is my little dressing room next to the master bedroom. I call this "My Room" and I have filled it with hand-me-down pieces from other rooms in the house (daughter's daybed, dining room curtains, bedroom lamp...) but now it's time to give it some attention. I use this room as a dressing/ironing/extra bed room. I now need a place to keep my laptop and organize some of my paperwork. My business Vintage farmhouse is coming along nicely, but the basket in the den (my currant filing system) is no longer working.

I really need a desk-nothing too big. I love some of the vintage ones I keep seeing in Blog land. I have had a couple of opportunities to pick one up, but I waited too long and they were snatched up quickly.

I already have my desk chair...$5 at a garage sale. I love the color and natural distressing. I think I'll send this to the upholsterer to have a nice cushion seat made.

This is what my room looks like now.

**I am joining DebbieDoos Newbie Party**
My "newbie" status is almost up, thank you Debbie for the opportunity to meet so many fellow new bloggers. I'll still be checking in to see so many creative people!


  1. I love all of the pics...... I could never take a pic of my desk.........way too messy. I am laughing at the first picture with the black desk. I had one of those purses, probably in the late 60's. They were sold in kits and then I had to glue all of the "jewels" on. Really can't believe I ever carried it, but I thought it was cool then. How, times have changed!!!!

  2. Oh no!!! My newbie status is coming to an end too soon!! The end of July! What will we do???
