In my office, I have quite literally found that I have no spot to package my monograms. I have been forced to spread them throughout my home, furiously running around in the evenings, preparing them to be shipped. I decided, it was time to find a table that was defined for the purpose of tagging and shipping monograms. Then, as fate would have it, I stumbled across this gem at a ReStore in Mt. Airy, NC. The curve of the tabletop and the elegant lines made me stop in my tracks. I HAD to have it. I bought it and somehow fit it into my small car. I am still not quite sure of how I pulled that one off.
After a little facelift with Annie Sloan Chalk paint and a sanding sponge, I had exactly what I wanted.
And now, what it really looks like…piled with monograms.
As a finishing touch, I found this fabulous basket at Target (Shops at Target.) This charmer also stopped me mid-shopping, but I resisted. I figured I didn’t need another basket, so it didn’t come home with me. I thought about it for days after I left…eventually, I went back for it. It has become the finishing touch that also serves a very important purpose-holding my crafting tools. My “work-in-progress office” is finally almost finished.
It is amazing how productive one becomes when in a fabulous space.
