A few months ago a good friend invited me to poke through her shed and help myself to a stack of old furniture she and her husband had been collecting from the side of the road. They, like myself, become saddened when seeing furniture left out to die like that.
Here’s the before (minus the spiders that were cohabitating in there):
I had never been into the Union Jack thing much, but as soon as I saw this desk it was screaming at me for me to do it.
I took the insert out because…. well just because. I like the space inside.
I still have some minor touch-ups to do before I list it for sale, but I think I will have to give that job to Mr. T (in between dropping off and picking up kids, cooking, cleaning, and everything else).
