Desk Makeover Finished!

After 4 long days of speed bump after speed bump with this little beauty, it's finally done! But enough with the writing, on to the eye candy :)

Here is a reminder of the before: She was in decent shape structurally but her face needed major work. The wood was pretty scratched up and wasn't coming close to being as pretty as she could be.




And the after :)- pics taken at 11pm so pardon the yellowish hue!




Still working on the chair situation but right now it is enough to house my junk just in time for our Thanksgiving company!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday, and that everyone realizes they have so much to be thankful for this season!!

**Finished just in time for DIY day over at A Soft Place To Land
**Linked up over at BNOTP for Met Monday!
**Linked over at Bobbypins Boardwalk for the Bragfest!
And over at The Shabby Chic Cottage for Transformation Thursday
