This weekend seemed to fly by as quickly as last week did. Luckily I had a surge of energy and ticked a few things off my list. Fall also made an appearance again on Sunday and cleaning the house with my fig scented candle burning and the doors open to hear the rain felt kind of heavenly.
One of the things I got around to doing was taking pictures of the desk that my 15 year old, Fisher, and I refinished this summer. The backstory is I had been looking for a desk for his room for months. I knew I wanted something mid-century and small enough for his room, but big enough for him to actually use. I couldn't find anything that I loved, or if I loved it, he didn't, or if we both did it was way over budget. Then one day as I was driving home from the store I saw this little desk (and the chair too) on the side of the road about a block away from my house. Obviously in its current condition it wasn't exactly the look my son was going for, but I loved the design, the lines, the size and that it was open on one side to keep a nice open feeling in his room. So I popped in the back of my car and we ended up refinishing it. I really think if I would have found this in the store it would have thought it was exactly what I was looking for, but the fact that we worked on it together makes me love it even more.
How was your weekend?
