Summer project

If you haven't checked it out yet, I have a giveaway going on for an Eclos Beauty starter kit.  I'll wait here while you go enter.  There aren't many entries yet so you have a good chance to win.

May is a crazy busy month for us.  School finished up for my youngest yesterday and the oldest finishes Tuesday.  Today I am going on a field trip to a creamery with the first graders while my mom watches the little one (thanks Mama!).  On top of this there are three family birthdays this month.  All of this means I really haven't had a chance to write down a new crochet pattern or get my latest craft pictures together.  I don't want to leave you without anything today though.

With all the running I was doing trying to get things ready for the Princess' birthday last week I hit a yard sale on Friday at my church.  I found this for $20.

I have been looking for a desk that is small enough to fit in my girl's rooms.  The height is adjustable so they can both use it for a while.  I am going to try and refinish it.  It needs some work where a few screws are missing and it is rusty in several places.

I appreciate any suggestions people have on fixing it up.

Please check out my Link Parties page to see the blogs where I may have showcased this post.  Thank you to the bloggers who host such wonderful parties.


  1. What a cute desk! Rustoleum makes a latex paint called Painter's Touch that is perfect for wooden furniture. It comes in lots of colors and is what I used when I refinished Matthew's desk earlier this year. Just sand it, prime it, and paint it. You could sand down the metal part and paint it a coordinating color.

    1. Thanks Chrissie! I will have to check that out. Hope you and the kids are doing well!

  2. Oh I love this desk! But I would just repair whatever is damaged and not paint it. I love old things.... super jealous! Whit

    1. It was pretty rusty in a lot of places. Still working on it.
