I was so excited to get stain picked out and get it finished. I decided to stain rather than paint, because I did not want to paint it white and I thought I would get tired of a color fast... so I stuck with something a little more classic and timeless. Stain it was.. and I knew I wanted it dark! So we went to Home Depot and picked out a few samples to test.
This last photo was taken with my phone, but you get the gist of the finished product. I'm absolutely in love with the desk. It's nice and long, which give lots of room for all of my projects. I bought two wire baskets for the shelves at Home Goods, and then I hung up those clip board with sticky tack.. for now.. until I decide if I want that to be more permanent. Excuse the mess of the photo.. I know it's not too much to look at right now, but I'm going to be updating you with progress photos as I get shelving, etc, up on that wall.. and get the rest of the room decorated. It's not only my craft area, but also the guest area (my parents are coming to visit next month!).
I can't wait to get going on the rest of it.. the desk was the 'big' project.. now it's all just starting to come together. :)
