WOYWW

HAVE STASH FOR SALE HERE CHECK IT OUT - Mostly NEW 95% of it 

Well I have a few new things to share on my desk this week. Glad to see Julia is ok and 1st off my ATC from Kezzy LOVE this little monster when he showed up on my doorstep which came with a few goodies inside to play with too.
Now to show you my desk which I am so happy with I made the shelf on the back with reclaimed 100+ year old wood it was painted which I stripped off and then sanded it down it's not been sealed yet but then I realized the base of my desk doesn't work so I have plans to use a old funky door in our place once we stop using it and cut it in half to make legs and make a new base top for my desk. Loving the vintage feeling and I took Julia's advice and kept the shelves low it's only 28 inches high and 6 inches deep but it's perfect thought I would like it deeper but it's working perfectly and I still have to make a bulletin board but I'm leaning on finding some metal to use and use magnets think that will work wonderfully. So All my stash is even more tidy and everything I use a lot is still close at hand oh even found the lamp shade for my lamp that I made years ago. Also had to recover everything in kraft paper so it doesn't stand out to much against all this lush oak.
One more thing that makes me smile really big when I enter my space .... my new BLING BLING Chandelier that I talked my DH into.  I did burn myself on those lights too gave myself a little 2nd degree burn on my arm putting the crystals on and gave the DH a laugh when it happened as he says I'm a walking clutz. 40 watt bulbs get SUPER HOT QUICK !!F*&& bulbs lol !! Still have to get curtains and everything but it's a work in progress and we enjoy the process so we live with the mess. Will be so happy when it's done Oh and my other half does the plaster crown molding so pretty they are :)
Thanks for looking and check out everyone else's space at WOYWW 
hugs Nikki
Thought I should make my blog match my desk :)

great looking desk and shelf! I love old wood and I don't know why the new stuff doesn't have such nice graining. I am moving rooms and having fun with the process also just wish I could craft a bit while doing so. Almost to the point where I can. Have a great week. Vickie #19

Love that bling! Funny I almost got similar, but multi-coloured, when they had it at a local shop, but ended up converting an old dangly surround with photos of the kids (and a VERY low watt bulb so it doesn't burst into flames above my head!) It's all looking very elegant in your craft room. Will be lovely when it is all done.

Happy WOYWW!

Fabulous ATCs and goodies, Nikki! I think your found shelving is brilliant and I like it narrow. If it's deep you just have to reach behind or take stuff down to get to what's behind; this is way better. I can't wait to see the whole thing finished! Love the lamp and chandelier, too!!

(Lemeno when you get your tute posted!) Happy WOYWW and have a wonderful week! Hugs, Darnell #14

Back again to say thanks for the tip on photographing glitter! Usually I use a thicker glitter, but this goes on smooth and flat so it's been a learning experience lol. I am going to try sideways : ). Thanks again. #51

The wood grain on your hutch is beautiful. I just love old stuff. And your chandelier was worth the burns you suffered. Well maybe, but it is beautiful. And the crown molding - good job hubby!
