Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

I hope everyone is enjoying the first day of 2011! I HAVE ALREADY BLOWN MY DIET ON THE FIRST DAY, OH WELL THERE'S ALWAYS TOMORROW. I wanted to share this desk makeover with you. I don't know what in the world I did with the before shots, I am thinking maybe I took them without my SIM card?!It was your classic finish that had been unfortunately abused. I love the curves and style of this desk and I thought she would be gorgeous in red. I used my favorite shade of red which is Valspar Berry, then I glazed with my Asphaltum antiquing glaze {also by Valspar}.

 I just love a glossy finish on red pieces~

 I thought the original hardware was great!

 I lined the drawers with this gorgeous fabric I purchased for recovering my kitchen chairs. It is called Covington Wilmington Multi. I purchased it here for $12.80  a yard. That's an awesome price considering Calico Corners is selling the same fabric for $24.99! Check out this gorgeous chair they feature on their website in this fabric~

                                             I am feeling some serious fabric love!
        Here is a pic of one of my kitchen chairs, not nearly so impressive but I love it just the same!
