Craft Desk Realized

Well, wonderful and talented bloggers, I have a desk in the computer/office/craft room that is fit for a Crafting Queen.  We had the glass top installed and it is up and running.  I am so inspired I am already starting to gather goodies for a give-away, for swaps and for blog buddie gifting.

Hubby inspecting the glass install.
The bunnies were tumbling all over and we had to settle them down before the glass could go on top.  Hubby got out his tile nippers and nipped at their toes.
They stacked these lil plastic disks all around the door and made sure it was all level.
I still wanted to see the craftsmanship of the joints of the wood.  Hubby molded the piece to hide the plywood support underneath the door.
I just love the patina of the old door; we did absolutely nothing to it but lay in our tile (broken dishes, cups, china)  job.  My $5 door is from a favorite junking spot, The White House, in Alvin, TX. where she gets containers sent from Europe.  This is the 2nd door I've gotten from her.  The 1st one is suppose to be out in the garden but has not been placed quite yet here at the new place.
I expect to spend many late nights and many early mornings here working!!

See my top sidebar for parties, swaps and give-aways going on now.
