In December my husband and I decided to convert our garage into an office space for me to start my new business from. What seemed like a small quick one week project turned into a massive one month operation! None the less, the hard work and effort paid off and I now have a beautiful airy office to work from.
During the same time our renovations went on, my grandparents had to clear out their old home as they moved into an old age home two months prior. I took this lovely chest of drawers that stood in their bathroom. I've loved it since I can remember, so naturally I was ecstatic to have it in my home.
It used to be painted with a high gloss white paint and I wanted to paint it stripes. I had to use paint stripper to get rid of the old paint and as it started peeling off, I decided that I would use it just like that and use the stripes on the wall instead!
It is now in my office and I can appreciate it every day with a bit of my childhood memories linked to it!
