The Desk – Part 1

Before I get started writing about my desk, I wanted to announce that this is my 100th blog post! If I were Ellen or Oprah, I’d have some giant giveaway or party.  But I’m just me. A mom, wife and blogger from the northwest.  So my simple announcement is the only recognition that my 100th post will receive.  OK, back to blogging….

I recently bought a desk from a friend at a garage sale.  It has some character. And the size was right for Jack’s room.  So for a bargain price, I brought the desk home.

The green paint is fun. But it doesn’t match Jack’s room.

So after a quick trip to Lowes….

I’m now armed with the gear to strip off the paint and give the desk a new look!

Stay tuned for updates on my progress!

  1. I can’t wait to see how it turns out! I love the look of the desk itself — it’s gonna be great! 🙂

  2. I am about to do the same thing to a desk for Courtney’s room. I had no idea where to start. So I will wait and follow your lead!

  3. Congrats on #100! And best wishes on the desk, the chemical stripper in the picture would do me in, for sure.

  4. Can’t wait to see the desk when you’re done! And, congratulations of 100 posts!
