I'm very excited to finally have my own little desk space. Originally, when we took our house off the market, and I realized we would be staying here, and that I didn't have an office to call my own, I began hunting. I knew that I wanted a simple table design. I knew I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars. I knew I wanted real wood. I knew I wanted it to look old, beat up, worn out, and well loved. I knew I wanted a pop of color on the table itself, and I knew there was no way I was going to find everything I wanted for the price I wanted to pay. So I did the next best thing, and asked my brother to make me one.
Jargon Jade, and painted the whole thing. Once that layer was dry, I freaked out momentarily, because it was a super bright, albeit darling color. Finally, I hit the whole thing with my sander, taking a good portion of the paint layer off.

from random angles, of my desk. Bwahahahaaha! (You know it's true... we all do it.) These seagrass boxes were a find at TJ Maxx a few years ago, and have moved all over my house. Now they store cards, office supplies, cords, chargers, cordless mouse... all the ugly stuff.
My headquarters, if you will. I feel like I suddenly have eyes in the back of my head.
