Desk and Chair

If you follow us on Instagram (@beaninlove), you maybe would’ve noticed this little picture upon scrolling through yesterday:
It’s the what with of the what I’m working on this week.  Skipping around, here, there, everywhere…you know how I roll. 
All of this is going into/onto the desk in our guestroom/office.
Except it’s currently taking up house in our bedroom, the only place I can paint indoors that’s safe from four eager hands and hundreds of tiny fingerprints.

I primed it a long time ago and am finally getting around to painting it.  When it’s all said and done, it’ll be the coral color on the paint lid in the Instapic and that hardware will be adorning it along with some matching knobs.  The fabric is going on the seat cushion of the chair after it’s painted white and it’ll be one happy decor marriage between the two pieces of furniture.  I’ll have lots of leftover fabric so I’m going to line the inside of each drawer with it.  Of course I’ll post all the details and how I undertook it all once I’m done.  Should be fun!  You should come by and see the after!  :)

What are you working on this week?  A little project?  Maybe some painting?  Or do you have a big ‘ole reno in progress?  I like those kind!  Or maybe you’re just trying to stay alive, make sure your kids stay alive, and your house is semi-clean.  Those are my kind of weeks too.  :)


  1. Oooo I love that coral color! Can't wait to see the final product!

    1. Aah! Me either! It's the vision of the end product that gives me the motivation to get it done asap! :)

  2. I'm in love with that paint color and fabric! Can't wait for the finished product!

  3. That color is crazy gorgeous! I'm doing some painting myself, just on a canvas! Can't wait to see the finished desk!

    1. Ooooh!!!! Funny, I was just thinking about how I'd love to take some of the leftover paint to a canvas today!! However I doubt it'd turn out as good as yours...I'm much better at painting furniture than making paint look good on a canvas. :)


C'mon, this isn't all about me! I'd love to know your thoughts too! It's a two-way-street-kinda-blog over here. :D If your comment is linked to your email, I'll hit you up there. If not, check back! I always try my best to respond!
