I built a table…

I’m the kind of girl who will wait years for the perfect piece of furniture instead of just buying something that’s easy to find. When decorating, I usually have a very precise picture of what I am looking for, I’m sure it exists somewhere and I’m willing to wait it out until I can find just the right thing. Call me patient or call me stubborn…nah, just call me stubborn.

For the past year and half I have been looking for a small “mini desk”. Despite my best efforts, Google continued to fail me over and over again in my search for this perfect table. It needed to be cool, cheap, original, and small. Finally, this summer when I was home visiting my family in WV I found an old piece of barn wood in a field near my house. I had a plan. With my dad’s help (because building things is always more fun –okay, easy– with dad help) I trimmed the ends of the board down to the exact size I needed. Then on the underside of the board I attached two 1 inch boards to give the raw steel hairpin legs (found online) a solid and even surface to attach. Voila! The perfect mini desk! Not only is it perfect in size, shape, function, and price, the table also has sentimental value which is priceless. It was worth the wait.

My very own “office” nook.

    had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!
