Did anyone else do decoupage crafts in grade school?
Show of hands?
Yeah, that’s what I thought. Most of us did. Bet those projects never looked like this though!
This weeks Etsy find is a fun, funky revamp on an old desk and chair, by Etsy seller littlejoys. Using torn up bits of old dictionaries, encyclopedias, and foreign texts, she has created a writing desk that is both charming, and maybe a bit inspirational – to those actually trying to write at it. Either that, or distracting to those like me who tend to get writers block a lot, but never get blocked on reading what someone else has written!
My favorite detail is the numbered drawers on the desk. I think it’s what really makes the piece.
Sadly, I will never know the joy of telling someone, “oh, the stapler is in drawer #3″, because this set is only available for local pick up in the Chicago area. So all my windy city (probably snowy city at the moment) readers, take note and snap this up. It’s one of a kind, so act fast!
