Abby’s New Desk!
I’m thrilled to have a new pantry, but the one thing I will horribly miss about this area being gone, is the little yard-sale table that I purchased years ago for $30, and the wall space. I loved to hang pictures here, rearranging as the seasons would come and go ($3 yards sale art).
The table area was a great place to hang my trays.
I’ll miss this functional little table, which held tea-light holders, salt and pepper shakers, and other miscellaneous entertaining items. It was also a great side table for entertaining!
My daughter snagged it right away when we started tearing this area a part for the remodel. We cleaned the table up together (removing all those spiders!), and she turned it into a desk for her bedroom.
I do love change. And I really get in to moving furniture around, finding a new home where a piece can actually be used in a more functional way.
Abby has used the desk many times now for homework, arranging it “just so” in her room along with her IKEA $12 chair and Wal Mart $19 foot-stool. I wonder where this girl learned how to move her furniture around and decorate? (I no longer have any say! :)
And another fun IKEA touch to her room.
I’d love to hear about a piece of furniture that you just couldn’t get rid of, that you’ve moved from room to room?
Welcome to my home and table! I'm Sandy—lover of food, family, cooking, travel, simple hospitality, and bringing people together. Feasting on Life is when guests come empty-handed, or with a dish, and they bring their story. It all begins the moment we open our door (and hearts). Through great recipes and connection around the table, we become better, stronger, and more courageous people. Feasting on Life is real, and every time we do it, we grow a little more.
