When I saw this idea for a desk in "Junk Beautiful" (page 14) I got excited...I had the exact vanity pieces in a storage locker and only had to add a piece of glass.  I did go a tad funky with the paint, but that's just my style!  My new mantra is: Life is too short for neutrals!  Thanks Ki and Sue for such great ideas to keep us inspired!

The bright colors just cheer me up and make this room (which is really actually two closets with a wall torn out) much easier to cope with! I'm a little mad right now as I do have pieces waiting to be done, but no time. Maybe someday we can meet up! Posted: 10:36 pm on December 10th

He owns a pizza restaurant in Silverton, Ohio, so I moved there. Originally from Northern Kentucky (Ft. Thomas). You and me both, I work full time, and with kids, etc., I can't find time to do my own stuff, the things that keep me sane and keeps me from paying a therapist. Painting is my therapy. Can't wait to see more of your work. Posted: 1:54 pm on December 8th
