DIY with Martha Stewart & Home Depot

 Remember when I shared my closet office redo here?

I had the wall finished but needed a desk.

Of course I wanted to cut cost and shop the house.

And I knew just who to turn to.

Martha Stewart!

Home Depot and I have teamed up to do some projects using their

Now that I had the paint, I needed the desk.

One U.G.L.Y desk

I did a light sanding and used the Polished Silver.

Here she is after one coat.

The look I want for my office is a gumbo of styles.

A little vintage. A little cottage. A little modern.

I think the desk will take me there.

It has the look of stainless but not cold and untouchable...if that makes sence?

I added a little hardware using a polished nickel.


Martha and Home Depot helped me knock this project out of the park!

Now if only Martha could swing by and sew up my curtains...

That would be great! lol

  21. Hello Susie~ It's always nice stopping by for a visit.

    Sweet wishes,

  22. I love it! Especially the silver desk -- it looks like silver leafing.

  23. Wow! I woulda never thought of Silver, but it looks really nice!

  24. “Women really dress based on their body shape. For example, Black Bandage Dress I’m very athletic. I have bigger shoulders and bigger bust Herve Leger Dress and smaller in the hip area. So when it comes to Herve Leger, Dirndl Dress for me it’s really about A-line dresses because it gives me a hip but minimizes me on the top.”While there’s no doubt that Lubov and her husband, Max, design for women everywhere, you can’t help but imagine her stamping Halloween costumes a mini-claim on a certain white dress and capelet pair when it was in its early stages. It’s a look we can imagine every woman instantly coveting when it’s available in April.


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
