HELLO!! I'm pumped up right now because I'm getting ready for the Haven Conference in Atlanta. I wrote about the experience after my first time attending the conference last year. You can read that post here. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and learning a lot!
Last week I shared a post about my most popular project. Today I'm sharing one of my favorite and most popular posts from last year....My Pottery Barn inspired desk.
Who doesn't love when they get that Pottery Barn catalog in the mail? Well, I sure do and I love pouring over the pages figuring out what I want to try and make. SO when I found some old wood filing cabinets at Goodwill, I knew what to do with them.
Here's my inspiration picture from Pottery Barn (I'm still trying to figure out how to make that abacus!)
This is what I started with....two of these lovely wood filing cabinets with brass hardware This picture was taken after I removed the hardware.
With the magic of some Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan in Old White, some spray paint in oil rubbed bronze from Rustoleum these cabinets were given new life!
Add in a solid wood panel from the home improvement store, some stain and a number and I had a new desk top.
And BAM! A new desk made by me and inspired by Pottery Barn.
I have to admit at one point last year I had the desk for sale. Then I changed my mind. I love this desk and I needed to keep it. I'm so glad I changed my mind!!
This picture was taken a few houses ago. Now the desk is sitting in the Hubby's new office waiting for me to get it organized, painted and decorated. I'll be sharing pictures of it's new home once I'm done.
I hope you're enjoying these blasts from the past as much as I am! It makes me realize how much has happened and changed in the 2 1/2 years I've been blogging. It seems like only yesterday I started this blog on a dare! Now I'm attending my second blog conference and going on my third year blogging. I'm hoping to learn a lot at Haven this year that I can implement here. Stay tuned to see what I learned.
Thank you for reading and have a wonderful week!
