ELECTRIC BLUE DESK !



I THOUGHT OF THIS OLD SONG
WHEN I WAS PAINTING THIS DESK
MAYBE YOU REMEMBER THESE
LYRIC'S....

I just freeze
Everytime you see through me
And it's all over you
Electric blue

WELL HERE'S THE 
DESK I REDID AND ITS ACTUALLY
A PRESENT FOR MY NEPHEW
IF I CAN EVER GET IT 
TO UPSTATE NY WITH ME
ILL HAVE TO STRAP IT TO THE
TOP OF MY VW!

AND IM SORRY ITS THE ONLY PIC.
I HAVE AS I DROPPED MY 
IPHONE AND THE GLASS SHATTERED
AND I COULDN'T GET ANY OF 
THE PICTURES OFF OF IT....
NOTE TO SELF... ALWAYS 
DOWNLOAD PICTURES OFF PHONE.

HERE IS THE BEFORE OF THE
DESK....

AND THE CHAIR...
I HAVE 4 OF THESE THEY
BELONGED TO AN OUTDOOR
SET I DON'T USE ANYMORE...


AND THE AFTER....


THE TOP WAS ACTUALLY PLEXIGLASS
AND YOU COULD SEE THRU IT
BUT IT WAS PRETTY SCRATCHED UP 
SO I PAINTED IT WITH CHALKBOARD
PAINT AFTER A POST THAT I HAD
SEEN ON CHARM BRACLET DIVA.
I HAD WENT AND MADE A WOOD TOP
FOR IT THEN I READ THIS AND
IT LOOKS GREAT. WHO KNEW!



LOVE THESE KNOBS I FOUND
AT HOBBY LOBBY!

FUN!







AND AN ADDED BONUS THE 
TOP LIFTS UP TO STORE 
PAPERWORK...
OUT OF SIGHT!






THE LITTLE HAM WANTED TO BE IN
THE PICTURE!

HOPE HE LIKES IT!



THE CLOCK FACES AND PAPER 
WEIGHT I SCORED AT AN
ESTATE SALE. I THINK HE OWNED
A WATCH STORE AT SOME POINT AS
HE HAD ALL THESE FACES AND
OLD ALARM CLOCKS THAT I
BOUGHT AS WELL.
LOVE ESTATE SALES!

P.S. I CAN'T GET THAT SONG
OUT OF MY HEAD!
