secretary who sews by night. And by day.

Hello there! Although I don't have the energy to be crankin out the projects lately, I wanted to post some pictures of a friend's project which was inspired by TL and Martha Stewart. Edie had been dreaming of a convenient place to store all her sewing stuff, and saw a great idea in a MS mag to put it all into an organized desk system that closed up. Anne Marie, the expert furniture finder (who is aware of every SINGLE available piece within a 40 mile radius) located a solid wood secretary desk for her at a cost of $50. Not bad, not bad.

Poor Edie. She painted this bad boy 3 different times. Amidst the disasters, there was no turning back--but look! Now she has a wonderful little area to go to, to remind herself that she is an adult who can have fun. WEEEEEE. And THAT reason alone makes it so worth it. It doesn't hurt that it's also a gorgeous piece of furniture. I am quite (jealous-shhhh). Edie- it looks like you put some kind of a glaze on it. And I like your walls behind it, too. Very lovely I must say.



Now, this girl even painted the inside. That's what I call persistance.




It's fabulous. But, check this out:



Edie added cork board to the inside panels and a dowel system to the underneath of a lower shelf. This makes me want to get off of my badonkadonk a little. But I don't have a sewing machine. DARN!



I need to ask for one for Christmas.
Thanks Edie-you da (wo)man!
