New items at Liberty House

Sounds like the 4th was a busy time down at Liberty House (in spite of the heat)!  I managed to bash my little toe on a piece of furniture (me?? extra furniture around here??), so didn't do much walking about town--but here's how things were looking in my little room at Liberty House.

I found this old waterfall desk beside a dumpster a few weeks ago.  It was covered with contact paper and the drawers were full of little plywood dividers.  I didn't even take a before shot because it didn't seem to hold a lot of promise, but I just love how it turned out.  I used stripper and sanded like crazy on the top and drawers and the wood was amazing!  The rest of the base I painted with Annie Sloan Old White.  The hardware is the original, but I sanded it down to the silver--much better.

I did this little desk at the same time and pretty much the same way.  The cute little lamp is from Rachel (thanks!).

Some other things . . .

Stay cool!      


  1. You are so very creative!!! What amazing things you do with items most people would trash! No wonder your daughter is also so very creative!
    Beautiful work - I'm very impressed!

  2. Thanks, Aunt Janice! I am having a lot of fun with it!
