Where do you blog?

Yes, this is the pleather desk from the post below. But, I couldn't resist a linky party. is having a where do you blog linky party.

This is where I blog. It is in an L shaped part of our family room. and I love it. I also love the amazing view of our 3/4 of an acre outside the window. I not only blog here, (yes, I need to blog more), but I also do my Ebay and Etsy. I am trying to work full time on my Ebay and Etsy, to help my daughter with college. Yep, empty nesters, and way under 40. But, enjoying her in college and the empty nest thing too. We do have a room at the front of the house, but it gets such poor internet service that I don't use it. The Hubs home offices in the back of the house, shouting distance away. We are currently re-doing his office and pics should be up soon. We are also doing a wine room. Pics to follow. So come back, relax, and see what we are working on.

Old Farmhouse Table to Stylish Desk

My finished white pleather desk top. And my great view outside my window.

The farmhouse table top before. Still useable if I change my mind and don't want the white anymore.

I had an old 1980's farmhouse table. You know the kind. The wood top and white legs. Not huge, 48"x30". I have been using it as a desk. However, it didn't feel very elegant. So I ran over to my favorite cloth store and picked up some white pleather. I know, you think I am crazy, and the white pleather is more of a gray white. But I love it and I love the results. I simply wrapped it around, stapled and cut. I love my results and I love my new elegant desk. Any projects you are working on?

What I wish my Guest Room looked like!!

I saw this while browsing the web. I don't know where it is from. I really wish my guest room looked like this. I know, it's not beds. But those 2 chaise lounges look comfy and inviting. I would sleep in them if I was a guest. You?
