Work can be fun! Especially when one gets to decorate their own workspace! That’s what went down with these two well-used desks.
They look like they’ve been instrumental in the education of countless children.
They found their way to my clients who decided to let their occupants choose their new finish.
And what creative imaginations those occupants have!
Even doing taxes could be more fun when sitting at a desk like either of these!
I used a chalkboard spray paint for the desk surfaces to increase the fun quotient even further!
I feel honored to have had my portrait drawn. It looks just like me!
I consider painting a fun workspace more fun than work!
Even the guy who helped to deliver the desks got in on the fun!
Consider sprucing up your workspace. We are all affected by our surroundings and making changes can drastically affect productivity and creativity!
Repurposing furniture is currently where it’s at. This little cutie wasn’t nearly as memorable when it was plain white.

Measles? Maybe. Whimsical? Definitely! It goes with the fun that is this little girl’s princess, fairy tale room.
And it reminds me of a poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins:
Glory be to God for dappled things—
For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;
Landscape plotted and pieced—fold, fallow, and plough;
And áll trádes, their gear and tackle and trim.
All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise Him.
Thank you for indulging my foray away from paint and into poetry for a moment.
There are sure to be other bunny trails in the future. Stay tuned.
