Making house a home: an old sewing desk.
But I can't wrap my mind around all of that right now. I will take a tiny bite only, and show you what I worked on today. I managed to finally get all of the bookshelf boxes unpacked (but not arranged, obv), and I dragged this old sewing machine desk in from the garage. I hadn't figured out a place to put this beauty, which came to me from my mom by way of my gramma, until I suddenly thought to put it in the living room.
Currently empty, my plans for the living room are to make it a more formal (whatever that means) space to host guests. I'm imagining it as sort of my own space to go crazy with all my weird, mish-mashed, granny-crazy things. Until today, a desk was not a part of that plan. It still makes no sense in my head, but I rather love it.
*I'm linking to Simple Design's Share-Your-Thrift-Haul post today. I realize I didn't personally buy this from a thrift shop, but my gramma got it from a friend and then gave it to my mom who took out the sewing machine and gave it to me. I think 60-year-old hand-me-downs still stay with the spirit of thrifting...right?
P.S. That chair was my gramma's, too. I think it was originally out of an old funeral home. Creepy!
P.P.S. I totally bought that bag at a thrift shop! See! I knew this post worked. :)
