This is my first time participating in this wonderful event so I'm very excited. Probably don't even have to mention but I will anyway that it's hosted by our most talented blogger, Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch. I love seeing all of the before and afters, but today on my blog you'll have to settle for just the before!
Here's why. This year marks the big 40 for me and to mark the occasion my wonderful husband will be having this very old, very in need of some work, desk refinished for me. An old friend of the family refinishes furniture and will be undertaking this task for us. I can't wait to see the finished product, but in the meantime will have to settle for accessorizing it in my head and finding just the right spot for it in my living room.
This very special piece of furniture belonged to my Great-Grandmother's brother. Don't you just love things that go back generations in your very own family?? You can't buy THAT on Ebay! LOL!!
Of course I will post the finished product when it's done, but hopefully that won't be too soon, because that will mean I turned 40 ;(
