I was so excited to find a little writing desk at the thrift store
As soon as I saw it I totally envisioned how I was going to transform it...Do you do that?
So here is where the self doubt comes in. My friend Jack was over and I asked him to help me carry the desk into the house. He said "What are you going to do with this"? So, I started to tell him my vision and he said "Oh no, the top is all wrong, you have to change it, or something" I said "No, the top is fine, wait till I paint it" Jack continued to interrupt my vision "You will have to round the corners..The bottom is ok, but" So, I said "You will just have to wait and see"....
....But then I started doubting myself....Well, maybe I should change the top? Maybe this was a bad buy? So I was out in the garage rummaging around looking for something I could use for a new top. I couldn't find anything......Oh poop, I'll just get out the paint and see what I can do!
Well, look at that Jack, it's looking mighty fine! I used a drawer liner from the dollar store....
...And heirloom white paint and semigloss black. I finished it off with clear wax on the top and painted the knob......I'm really liking the black a white!
When I brought it into my antiques booth at Orange Tree the girls that work there loved it! I priced it at $85.00
OK, lesson learned! ...No more self doubt!
Now, I invite you all to join me in this very mature salute to Jack
