Sorry if this post happens to be typo-ridden and wonky, but I’ am typing this one-handed as I babysit a friend’s baby today.  Actually, the baby is sitting on me, and she is the squirmiest, floppiest baby I’ve ever seen in my life.  I’m convinced she has no bones.  So, I must go before she dives forward and does a floppy face-plant on my desk, but not without leaving you with this magnificent desk redo from Danielle at Antique Recreation.  I don’t know if that center piece was an actual drawer or just a front, but if so, she disguised it well! Ok, the Cheerios have run out, I really have to go now.

    Hi Lindsey!
    Thanks so much for featuring my desk! It’s so encouraging to know that other people like the finished product! And it IS a drawer in the center, it just never had handles before…. Thanks again, and have fun babysitting! I’m watching some extra little ones right now myself. 🙂

    You are right, that looks great. I always forget I can combine paint with wood, then I don’t give up one or the other.

    LOL @ floppy baby.

    I love that she mixed the wood and paint. I love wood toned furniture and always like seeing it shine through!
