Monday Made It

I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for their Monday Made It Linky!  I am new to all this, but I am lovin' these linky parties.  They are so much fun!

Ok gals - back on track - for my Monday Made It I fixed up two very old antique desk.   Let's start from the beginning:  My two daughters have really been begging for desk in their rooms.   I really didn't want to fork over a bunch a money for one, but I wanted it to be cute and match their room.   My mom {thank goodness for her} years ago use to have an antique store.   Lucky for me she had kept a few things.   So off I  went digging in the storage, and guess what she had,  two desk very similar to each other.   However, they were not in the best of shape.   They were very old, a little rustic and very shaky.   So I loaded them up brought them home.  Of course my hubs was all to thrilled with my newest project {insert sarcasm here}.   We stripped them down and repainted them a pretty turquoise color to match the girls rooms.  They turned out really cute.  I gave the metal tops a good scrubbing and left all the little untidy details.   I think it gives them character.

So there you have it - my Monday Made It project.  Thanks for taking a peek.

  4. So cute! My daughter needs a new T.V. cabinet/stand in her room (it's my old desktop computer desk and it's bulky). I was thinking of junking to find something and re-doing it. But it would be #3 on my list of re-do's this summer;)
