A filing cabinet of sorts.

We are in chaos. My dishwasher has left for a new home as has my cooker.
Things have been forced out into the wet garden and I can't find my spoons anywhere (they may be in the garden too).
Today is kitchen delivery day so I am off to have my hair done, by way of celebration of new kitchen of course.

Yesterday was a full on day of cleaning, I was knee deep in grease.
I took a break at around 2pm to have a coffee and do something nice, it can't be all work and no play for goodness sake.

I decided that my desk had become too cluttered of late. I reached this realisation when I found myself working at the kitchen table as I just had no room for cutting, sticking and other such lovely pastimes that take place at ones desk.

I picked up a little chest of drawers from a local second hand furniture place (tis a secret location). I paid 4 pounds for it and I knew it's future place in life straight away.

Perfect for bits and bobs.

And just like a desk side filing cabinet don't you think.

I used some wonderful vintage paper that I recently recieved from my good friend Vanessa.
I applied layers of Mod Podge (what did we do before Mod Pogde?).

And my desk is now spacious as spacious can be.

What is that there letter I hear you ask....

I will tell you.
It is the most loveliest letter from my new friend Eve.
Things like this make the ups and downs of a crafty life worthwhile.

Tonight I will mostly be eating uncooked food and hoping the new kitchen is worth a few days of upheaval. Of course it is :)

Thanks for reading. X

  4. The little cupboard looks pretty fantastic if you ask me, love the vintage paper you have used on it and it must be brilliant to have almost your whole desk clear to work on! :-)

    Cannot wait to see some sneaky peeks of the new kitchen. A little upheaval and lack of baking/cooking facilities may necessitate a naughty trip or two to the bakery and the takeaway methinks?! ;-)
