The Perfect Little Desk: Part 2

You may remember last month when I found this perfect little desk and chair for $10 each at Goodwill to put in this awkward inset in our living room. 

Before                                      After

My wonderful husband got the computer hooked up a few weeks ago - not without a few hiccups.  A different computer and few trips to the store for the right wireless connector and we have Internet!  I still have not allowed the kids to play as I also want to get a timer so we don't have too many arguments when it comes to taking turns!

Today I decided to add some artwork above the computer to brighten up this dark little corner.

I used a fat quarter I picked up a few weeks ago at JoAnns and stapled it over a canvas that I had originally painted with polka-dots for my daughters room in our old house.  The mirror was this cute little molded plastic mirror I found at Goodwill for $1.99 a while back.  It was originally a bronze-gold tone.  I pulled out the bright white spray paint, cleaned up the mirror and hung it on top of the canvas with a piece of pale blue satin ribbon.


  1. What a neat find! There is a GREAT thrift store near me that I can spend hours in. I wish you lived closer - I'm sure you would love it, plus you could help me decorate this house that we have already been in for a year and still has more than a few bare walls...

  2. That desk is perfect for that spot. I also love how you updated the canvas and the mirror.
