Roll-top Desk

Here's another project I've been working on.  A basic pine roll-top desk.  No, I didn't remember to take a "before" photo.  I'm getting old, okay??  Just picture your average yellow pine wood, okay?

I painted the desk a warm white.

Two of the drawer knobs were missing and they were ugly anyway, so I replaced them with some sparkle!

Then I added a classic graphic from my favorite source, Graphics Fairy.

It wasn't easy getting it on with the way the slats move as the roll up!  Let's look inside.

 Wait!  Did I forget to mention something??

Like, that this roll-top desk is really a recipe card file??

Shoot!  See?  I told you I'm getting old!  But I think the "desk" is kinda cute anyway!

I'm linking this to Brag Monday at Graphics Fairy , Nifty Thrifty Tuesday at Coastal Charm ,and Nick of Time Tuesday .
