Blue Ombre Sewing Desk ... FINALLY!

I have been working on this desk for MONTHS!

June: Bought the desk & chair at a garage sale in New Hampshire for $20.
July: Desk & chair sat in the garage collecting dust.
August: Dusted them off, prepped, sanded and primed.
September: First coat of white paint, with the gracious help of my dear friend Elly. Thank you!
October: Sat in the garage some more.
November: Finished painting the chair and drawers. Added knobs.

During October, I got caught up with launching the furniture consignment shop. But the Universe did me a solid this Sunday and warmed the Vermont region to a toasty 65 degrees, which allowed me to get outside and finish it up.

I had originally planned to sell this baby at the store, but after looking at the finished product, I couldn't let it go! I put it in the small guest room and plopped my sewing machine on it to create the perfect sewing nook.

So there it is! What do you think? :)

Happy Hump Day!

  4. Marketing sewing machines to individuals didn't begin until 1889, allowing for women to have the means to create clothing for their family without the labor-intensive hand stitching. the best starter sewing machine

  5. One shade of blue is awesome! I like this desk.office desks under 1200
