    HaPPy BiRthDaY to you; it was actually my birthday too. Your desk started off my nesting space. For years I’ve had a room in my house that I called the Christmas-Tree Room because it had no other purpose. Other times of the year it simply collected “junk”. With the introduction of your/my beautiful new desk, I knew things for this particular room needed a change. My grandfather’s tired 1956 modern sleigh chair got new fabric for the cushions which should be back from the upholster shortly, & I scrubbed up the original wood to make it look brand new (my mom wouldn’t let me paint it…darn). I reupholstered another little chair & brought up an old secretary unit to round out the look. It is now a functional & relaxing office space. Thank you for your inspiration. By the way, I love your new scotch table.

    Hmmm, just started reading but I like specific advice…your opinions on brands, colors, where to shop, how to find good deals…and love before and after pictures! Happy birthday!
