Corner Desk ~ Beach House

So I had this corner in the master bedroom that was open & I thought what a great place for a desk!
I knew that the chance of me finding a corner desk would be slim to none especially in a smaller size.
I searched online and found this one below.
It was perfect size/color wise.
Once I found the make/model I just searched for that and ended up paying roughly $50 less on Amazon!
Double score when I found this chair that was a perfect match in a local thrift store for $12!

Freezing Chives

I had an abundance of chives this year so I was looking for a new way other than drying them to save some for use this winter.
I cut a large bunch, washed, then tied into bundles.

I then cut them into smaller bundles.

Stuck them in a freezer bag, then froze.

When ready to use, remove a bunch & cut off what you need!

Antique Mirror

I had this mirror laying around which went to my Beach House Media Center dresser.
There was actually a top side piece which was missing.
I removed the other side which was still attached and painted in SW Halcyon Green.
I couldn't justify tossing the whole mirror just because of a small piece of missing trim.
It was distressed, sealed with clear wax & highlighted in Grecian Gold.

A Lil Project

I pickup up this little shelf thingy the last time I was at the thrift store.
I chose Halcyon Green, distressed & added a new Crown Knob. {Hobby Lobby}
This lil baby is headed to the beach!

Painting a Mirror

I used to take the time to tape up all around the glass on a mirror.
Not anymore..
I just paint away:

Then I use this $1 tool: {found at any hardware store}

It easily scrapes off a nice clean edge.
