Oh hai! Remember me? I used to hang out here all the time. Seriously though, I can't believe I did it again. Time is just cruising by super fast and I can't keep up. Just a flurry of activity around here, so much to talk about.
Hmmm, where were we? Oh yeah, the desk! So I finished it and absolutely love it. It's got me inspired to do the rest of the room, I can't wait until we rearrange (A whole different story.)
So here it is, my beautiful revamped work bench.
Isn't she a beaut?! I want to do a little something special with the drawers but I'm still so in love with it. It's just so cheerful and bright. Exactly what I was going for.
I'm definitely a detail person, can you tell? I had to add a bit of my favorite hobby and embroider the pegboard. Besides details, I'm all about personalization. Bows and vintage buttons?! Yes, please. I've never been a very feminine person, but lately I have this whole new girlie side. Weird. Just in case it's a phase, I didn't want to do anything too permanent. Yarn stitches were a perfect choice. Cute, crafty, and easy to change on a whim!
I used some of my favorite vintage buttons to top off my bows. Some of which I've had since I was a kid. Hitting up antique stores and flea markets with my mom, she'd always let me pick something. Nothing like getting a huge bag filled with tiny treasures- hours of entertainment right there.
The only thing that irks me is that I still need to add another coat. It had solid coverage and I let it dry between coats, but for some reason everything I set on it mars the finish and leaves a mark. Why?! UGH!! Oh well, I keep telling myself, it's just a work bench. Plus, I have more paint to do more coats and paint some shelves, so it's no biggie. I just hate that feeling of redoing something you thought you had nailed the first time.
Anyways, beside a new workspace, that's about to get even better, I've been up to a lot! A new job, commissioned embroidery, and a huge lifestyle change. Just plain craziness. I'll tell the handful of you still reading just as soon as my head stops spinning. Bye!
