|This is what the foyer looked like up until Monday. Kind of dark-ish and neglected place that was at the same time sort of a catch-all for stuff.|
|View from my favourite chair in the living room.|
|Ceiling is painted turquoise (in case you missed that). Ceiling lamp, stool, armoire and yellow lamp base are all thrift store finds.|
|Yellow and turquoise suitcases are also thrift store finds.|

There a couple of things in the works too. I am trying to split my time between custom orders, painting for my Etsy store and changing things around my house a bit. Fun times.

This desk seemed like a too good to be true find and it really was. Once I brought it home and started working on it, I noticed that the top veneer was detaching itself from the surface. Rather than trying to glue it down, I decided to take it off completely and reveal the wooden base. I called my trusted iron and scraper to the rescue and little by little the beautiful wood was revealed.
I used natural wood grain as a base for the stripes and left the last one unpainted.
It is a fun little piece that can now be found in my Etsy store.
Have a great day friends.
