Decoupaged Desk

As we approach the eleventy thousandth day of lockdown, I have found myself drawn to anything that looks like a space saving, multi functional item of furniture that you could work from home on. This compact little reproduction desk ticks all the boxes, the drawer pulls out to become a table for your keyboard, and there is a sliding shelf underneath. We decoupaged the drawer with some marbled paper, and I have spent hours ‘restoring’ the leather scriver on the top, to give it an aged antique appearance. Which sounds a bit mad when I read that back, but the idea was to create something that is as decorative as it is useful… and confinement will do that to a person 😀
