Before and After

I found this cute old desk at Goodwill not too long ago. It needed some love and a little paint (I'm being nice when I say it looked like the previous owner used a mop and white water color).


Even the chewed gum was painted over!

And the finished product. It looks really cute in TuckMeister's room - but it seems to swallow him when he sits at it:

That is adorable!

I thought of you today, I saw a pecan pie plate with the recipe printed in the bottom, don't you collect those? Almost got it for you but couldn't decide if I was remembering right!

Thanks, Vick! I miss you! How are the kids?

Dutchgirl: Yes, you remembered correctly! But I already have the pecan pie plate, so it's good you didn't buy it! :) It's so awesome that you thought of me though.

Is that an Airstream in the background??? I love the desk, but drool over the Airstream! We have a 1953 & 1963! Check it out: http://airstreammemories.blogspot.com

Very nice! You need to open an etsy shop and sell your wares!

you know, it won't swallow him for very long. Those little munchkins grow very very fast...
