Project in Progress...

Besides eating lots of turkey and staying up all night to shop, I also spent part of the holiday week being productive. You may remember the old school desk that I picked up last year for only $5...I had big plans for all three school desks back in January. Well, it is November and I'm finally getting around to working on them.
They are painted....blue for Henry, green for Grant, and orange for Eli!
I've also added some chalkboard paint to the desk tops and I put the boys' names with on the backs with vinyl. I still want to add a few more fun details to make them a little more special. Hopefully I will use the rest of the weekend {if I'm not too wiped out from shopping all night} to finish these up and I can share them with you next week!

Did you do anything productive this week? Or did you just enjoy the holiday with family while eating lots of good food:) I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving...and Happy Black Friday!
Pin It!

I've been shopping like crazy all weekend, and still have tomorrow for Cyber Monday. But I'm happy to say I only have 3 more gifts and I'm done! Love the desks, they turned out great. Hope you had a great weekend.

I absolutely adore these desks. I have two desks just like these for my daughters and had no idea what to do with them. You are an inspiration...and it's my first time visiting your blog. I hope you post a pic of the finished product- I would love to see what the chalkboard desk tops look like.
May I ask what type/brand of paint you used? I especially love the green color.
