I am very happy that my present house sold in one day. Now I am in the process of packing up everything and trying to get as much stuff over to the other house so I don't have to pay for the movers to do it. It is an enormous job, I can't believe home much ridiculous stuff I have acquired in the last 9 years. So, I decided to have a Garage Sale on May 31st. Hopefully this will not be a crazy amount of work, I have friends helping me. So, I am selling my house, moving into another, packing one kid for camp and another for Israel and all this in the next three week. This is crazy!
I did complete one project for the new house. It was surprisingly easy. This mid century student desk has been in my brother Josh's room as long as I can remember. It served well as a school desk for him and a place to pay bills for my dad. The blond wood finish was not looking great, so I decided to give it a makeover. I repaired the chips, deglossed the finished and them applied two coats of semi gloss in a bright green color, which is the accent color in the den.
The desk will not be tucked into the corner of this room making it a perfect place to put a laptop, check emails and write my blog.
