I have become the queen bee of avoiding all that is mundane and "must do-ish!" around our wee abode and have frenzified myself with all manner of titivating and nesting.
Hubby and I have coveted this gorgeous old drop down desk at our dear friends' house for many years and when they had a giant clean out preparing for bubby number three we snaffled it up!
It had the most beautiful parquetry work in the timber and although I sanded it back with all that I had in me (surprisingly quite a bit at this stage of my pregnancy when I've got a bee in my bonnet about something!)....a french polisher I ain't!
Resigning myself to the fact I would never get it back to it's former glory I headed off to the mistint section of ye olde Bunnings and found a peachy shade just perfect for my new "office". Oh yes....remember the craft room becoming le bébé's room....well there goes the study too!
A few quick coats of said peachiness, a thorough splodging of mod podge and some yumbo vintage wallpaper and I now have a lady's desk to rival any Austen heroine's.
Taking pride of place in our bedroom hiding all and sundry related to Mr. and Mrs. Technology and that horror of all horror....the bills folder! C'est parfait!!!
And no lovely friends...you can't have it back ;)
