From Old to New

I had a spare hour yesterday and decided to do something with the old little desk that I had saved from the skip in work this time last year.... I loved the shape of the piece and the little secret drawer and I just wanted to cheer it up a bit .. and I also wanted to use some of this lecien fabric that I had in stock.. here

so it went from this 

to this in about 1 hour ... I am delighted with it ... 


  1. That's really lovely, love the ribbon handle on the drawer too!

  2. Looks lovely Gwen! Welcome back! Fi

  3. Love it and love thte idea of the ribbon handle.

    Great work :o)

    {Dab and a dash.}

  4. Thank you for all of your lovely commments ladies.. glad (ish) to be back ....

  5. I love this too I'm currently stripping and sanding an old table but I've forgotten to take a before photo... oops. The ribbon handle is the perfect finishing touch.
