Themed Furniture Makeover: Words and Letters!

Welcome back to our Themed Furniture Makeover Day!
This month features furniture transformations with Words and Letters.


This desk is my painful little contribution –SMH!
I will spare you the details of the many makeovers it has gone through the past few months until I could get it “just right”
Here is a before shot
– a few moments after I saved it from Goodwill.

Lots of scratches on the wood and more dents, scrapes and burns in the leather top!

I really thought I could save the wood and clean up the leather but as the process began I just couldn’t leave it well enough alone.

Worked some more and almost used it in our Decoupage Theme…then changed my mind.
I worked on it and almost used in in our Two Toned Theme…then changed my mind.
Yes it’s been “in progress” for that long!

Finally this week as I was rearranging linens in my dining room this tablerunner fabric got my wheels turning and thus the desk beautification began.



I intended on selling it but then my daughter fell in love with it.


And then I fell in love with it!
I guess we will have to arm wrestle over it!She wins since I have nowhere to put it and maybe in a few years when she moves out she will let me keep it in her bedroom.


What do you think?
I hope you love it too!

Now let’s see what my other furniture girlfriends are up to today!

  1. I can see why you and your daughter were fighting over this desk Tami. The burlap fabric is perfect – so pretty! I have a hunch she may want to take it with her when she moves out (just say'n).
