I’ve officially outgrown myself. I long ago took over our three season sunporch as my project workspace (and no, I will NOT be posting a picture of that hot mess), but that little makeshift studio has gotten pretty crowded with crafting supplies and materials, and I realized I was having a hard time focusing when it came time to write or brainstorm. There are just too many opportunities for distraction. I found some perfect space upstairs, but since I didn’t have any funds set aside for a new desk, I had to get a little resourceful about what to use as my work surface.
Enter my trusty plastic folding table. I’ve used it as a makeshift desk in a pinch before, but if it was going to exist as anything more than a momentary desk, I wanted to pretty it up a bit. Since I was looking for a bit of blank-canvas room for my brain, I decided the surface expanse needed to be a clean white, but I wanted to do something a little chic for the legs. And here’s where I give a teaser: I knew I wanted copper, but I had a little mid-project catastrophe, so the copper medium I thought I’d use isn’t what I ended up using. Duh duh duh. Cliffhanger.
