damask side cabinet

This piece is something a bit different for me.  I tried my hand at wallpapering a little vintage side cabinet.  I used some pretty black and white damask patterned wallpaper on the top and the door.  I also added some 'bun' style feet to update it a little more.  It was a bit tricky but I think it worked out pretty well for a first try :)

a new desk

I found this little desk several months back for the bargain price of $12.99.  Thank you Value Village - sometimes you still know how to price like a thrift store!  At first I planned on refinishing this one for sale...and painting it black.  But after starting my move-biz-from-dining-room-down-to-suite shuffle I realized that it would be a great piece to replace the beast of a desk (5 feet by almost 3 feet!) we've been using in our family room.

I still think the desk would look fantastic black, but white was more of the look I was going for in the front room/study I am decorating.  I am still having second thoughts though! 

All these furniture moves have freed up a lot of space in our family room, which will allow me to move a cabinet and make room for book shelves in the study, etc!  There will be pictures eventually once the room is finished.

Here she is:

Stay tuned for some more 'show and tell' soon!
