A Sweet Little Desk Transformation

Happy Thursday, friends!! I hope you’re having a lovely week! I’m having such a great time, spending time with my family on our little family vacation!

Last Thursday, I shared with y’all a dresser that I bought, painted, and sold. After writing that post, and mentioning that I wanted to be more deliberate in spending time doing something that I love, specifically being creative and painting/restoring furniture, I have decided to try to transform at least one piece of furniture every week. I briefly talked to my husband about my plans to start a little side gig, of painting and fixing up furniture to sell. I guess he liked my idea, because the very next day, after work, he showed up with a sweet little desk that he had found on the FB marketplace. He always so sweet and super supportive of me! I’m a lucky girl!! I should have snapped a “before” picture, but I was so excited to get started on it, that I completely forgot.This little desk sold within an hour of being listed on the FB marketplace. I am always so happy when these pieces that I love, and want to keep for myself (if only I had more space), go to people that love the pieces just as much as I do.A darling craved details along the edges, give it the perfect subtle feminine touch that y’all know I love!

I hope y’all have a wonderful end of the week! My oldest two boys just finished up a youth football camp, at WVU. It’s always sooo much fun watching them play football! Now, we’re headed down to VA to spend a couple weeks with my husband’s parents. I already have my antique store adventures all mapped out and planned! Crossing my fingers that I find some good stuff. It was here, just last year that I found my first pieces of ironstone that started my little collection. I can’t wait to start hunting here! I’ll be sure to show y’all what I find, just as soon as I get back to Utah and unpack all of my treasures!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!! You are the best!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

    This piece turned out great and I think I’m going to give FB Marketplace a try soon. I love giving pieces new life.

    Enjoy your trip and can’t wait to see the goodies you find.

    This piece turned out fantastic and I’m pretty sure the new owner is so happy too!!
    FB market place is just fantastic it’s where I buy a lot of pieces from and resell a lot of pieces also.
    We also share the same problem Emily! Space!!! I’d keep everything if I only had the space! Oh well!
