Joy is a choice you make each and every day! Joy is a gift from our Heavenly Father! It is your weapon! When you smile at someone...they smile back. When you laugh...others will laugh with you. When you think happy thoughts...you feel better. Come on...Do some "Joy" things...kick the devil where it hurts! Defeat him!! Psalm 28:7 "The Joy of the Lord is my Strength and my Shield, my heart trusts in Him and He helps me. My heart leaps for Joy, and with my song I praise Him"

You just had to see the "before" on the desk...I was driving by a garage/estate sale and saw this desk sitting outside and almost caused a wreck turning around...Literally ran out of my car so no one would beat me to it..Almost cried when I saw it was missing a leg...(sigh)...walked on in to see what else I might could find...happen to mention to the man that I loved the claw foot desk, "just wish it had all the legs"..drum roll please.....He said "Oh, it's in the drawer!"...I screamed...(really I did)...ran back outside and yes...there it was....little ole leg saying "hello" ha! I'd never paid this much for any piece I've done before..but I just had to have it! After an extreme amount of work...hope you like it...
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint .."Graphite" waxed with Clear Minwax - added Ebony Briewax...
lots and lots of loving went into this piece!!
I absolutely LOVE Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!!
Yes...I realize now I must work on looking for a new camera.. I so hope it sells soon and can make someone very happy! Don't ya just love the detail!...I lined all the drawers and they looked so pretty. I just forgot to take a pic..sorry. It certainly still has some flaws but that's what makes it so special...all the bumps and bruises we get...just make us stronger!
