My " New" Old Desk

I got another project done on my LONG list of projects - hee hee, you know how that goes!!
I had this old vanity that I found at a flea market and I decided to turn it into a desk. I really love those kitchens that have a built in desk incorporated into the cabinets and counters. So cute but we don't have one. So, I decided to make myself one. I took an old vanity that I had and repainted it white. I then antiqued it exactly like I did with the sofa table. I have this cute old ice cream parlor chair that I found at Goodwill so I'm using that for my desk chair. I think I might make a round cushion for the chair too - I'll add that to my project list - LOL!!
Have a happy Sunday everyone!!

I took my built-in desk OUT of my kitchen LOL! I really needed the counter space badly and more cabinets. Your desk came out very pretty! I think that chair would look great with a pretty cushion on it!

I love your idea for a a desk chair. I hate the one I have at the moment. Y'know, one of those black, cheap, plastic things on wheels.

What a great project! It turned out beautifully! A little round cushion on the chair is just the "cherry" this cupcake needs!

What a great desk! You did a nice job redoing it and the chair is just perfect. A little cushion would be cute. I wish I had room in my little kitchen to put a little desk. Thanks for sharing yours with us. ~Adrienne~

Hi there Erin :)
I'm so glad you found me, because I really love your blog (I read the whole thing LOL) and you are so talented! I hope you don't mind, but I added you to my blog roll, don't feel that you have to do the same, I just want to be able to get back here and see what wonderful things you come up with.

Have a beautiful day,
Rue :)
