Some time back, I bought the cutest little waterfall style desk. Not sure what the original intent was, but it has been sitting in my entry way for some time now. With my upcoming surgery, though, I have vowed to get as many projects as I can completed. For a few reasons, but primarily to get my path from kitchen to bedroom clear for post surgery mobility. Also, I know that I won’t be able to get much accomplished during recovery and I want temptation and frustration of not being able to be removed from my horizons. I really need to focus on recovery and therapy.
So, I moved the desk to the garage and it got the usual treatment. I love pieces that have been cared for and maintained. It needed just the most minor attention before primer and paint. It occurred to me that it would be the perfect size for an “all-in-one” type of computer, like an iMac or laptop. I initially thought about converting the middle drawer into a keyboard tray and preparing it with electrical connectors, but then I reverted back to the most simplest makeover and leaving it to still work for someone who just would like a small desk for a child’s room or an out of the way nook in a hallway or kitchen.
This will be a quick reveal as was the whole project. Quick and straight forward.
Is this cute? And way before it got piled high with “stuff”… project pieces, equipment, drop cloths… you name it. Its proximity to the front door meant junk mail and it was an easy spot to drop off clothes from the laundry. It had to go!
Here it is completed. This is a different red than I normally use, this one has a more pink or orange underlying tint (instead of blue). In the sunlight you can really see it. I think it would be stunning in a blue and/or denim room as an accent. It would have worked wonderfully in The Kid’s room as well, considering his accent color is exactly that red, but his room is much to full already!
I told you tonight’s reveal would be quick! I hope you like it!
