|Yay! So happy to have painted my mom's secretary desk for her the other night while I was home in Iowa for Christmas! Want to know how it all went down? If so, read on.........|
|Here is the before. She bought it from a dentist at his estate auction on a total impulse. She's spontaneous in every sense of the word! She'd been wanted to paint if for a long time, and questioned me about it practically every time she called! So when I met up with fellow blogger Laura from Our Prairie Home while in Iowa (How TOTALLY cool is that, by the way?!!! We got to go junking a whole day together, and had never met in person before that day! You can read about our adventures together on her blog HERE, she does a much better job at relaying the story than I could ever do!), I invited her in to see if she had any ideas. She gave me the nudge to go in the subway art direction, so it was two against one when Mom started backing away from the idea!|
|We did a little sanding on the edges to distress it up just a little, and then gave the whole shabang a good coating of polyacrylic to seal it all up and give it a finished look.|

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
