Quite some time ago, my mother-in-law found this wicker desk on the side of the road.
She stopped, threw it into the car, and gave it to me proclaiming, "I have the perfect desk for your sewing machine!" She also handed us about 5 bottle of spray paint and a scaper.
It had a veneer top that was really waterdamaged, but underneath was a solid piece of wood. One man's trash is another DIY's treasure!
Hart went off to a Men's Retreat from church and I decided that I needed to accomplish something on Saturday! I went around the house and decided today was the DAY for working on this desk project!
I scraped and scraped this veneer off and was still working on it several hours later when the hubby came home and stepped in to help finish her off. I found the secret to getting things done around the house...start myself, because then the hubby has to help finish! Ha! No, he really is a great husband, but so often I don't want to start a project, because I want him to have a relaxing weekend, but we realized this weekend that we missed working on things like this together, so our new plan is to attempt some new projects together!
We sanded, caulked, waited, painted and transformed this blah space from this...
To this... my new sewing area in our office/sewing room/musical instrument space/guest room...
Welcome to my slice of blog heaven where I design and sew and share my love of Jesus. Truly, I'm a sinner but am covered by the blood of Christ; a fun loving wife to an amazing husband; a mom to the sweetest little boy; and a friend to whoever I meet! I love to create and sew and this is my avenue for that design. I ultimately want God to be glorified through this blog, and my goal is to use this blog/ministry to support other people's ministries.You can email me at Vanessa@DesignsBySessa.comYou can read more about me here.
