My New Desk Area Finished!




Well, I am slowly starting to move into my new sewing room. There is so much to put up, attach & move that it will be a slowish process. I thought I'd post as an area is finished. My first priority was getting my desk area finished so I can use my computer asap. I painted an antique chair I had white as well as the desk. The desk was Tom's grandmas & it already had 3 layers of paint on it. It looked like the original was aqua~ which I would have loved! I used fabrics from Jennifer's new Honey Child line for the chair skirt. Dana in green for the seat (from Jennifer's fqs she sent me), skirt in Danielle in green that I ordered from http://sewmamasew.com. The piping & ties are from Queen Street & are a great coordinate. For the desk top, I used iron on vinyl that comes in 17" width & I use it for the back of changing pads. I ironed it to Elizabeth Rose ice from Flower Power & pinked the edges for cuteness. It makes a great mouse pad as its smooth & adds color to the all white desk. Lots more to show you coming up!
