It sat in the basement for 3 years. Then I decided to bring it to me Cottage Beach House, down the shore.
There I knew it would undergo a transformation.
I painted it white. I decoupaged the drawers to hide the gouged out drawers from my son swinging the pulls that were hanging off, round and round.
I'm thrilled with the final result. It serves double duty as a desk and a vanity for me. Now I use it for reading and writing on my blog, or for sitting down and fixing my hair or dabbing on some make up.
I keep the junk in a neat little box from Home Goods, because I'm not too fond of clutter.
My daughter painted me a little tray for all my goodies ( seashells found at different shores) and candles.
And now this once beat and ragged desk that everyone said I should toss, has become a charming, useful addition to bedroom in my little Cottage Beach House.
