One more thing to add to the list is painting this desk. I first painted it green...it wasn't the right color. I hated looking at it and kept imagining something better. THIS is it. I love love love it. I'm leaving orange (goodbye, orange!) as a decor color and going to do something different. And although I just made the kitchen valance, it's going too. My husband just laughs at my randomness right now. It's a fun stage of pregnancy.
This desk was a craigslist find. It has old separator drawers, too - totally antique. I really like the wood grain top.
And just in case you don't believe that I'm prego...here a little self-pic from yesterday. Right after this my kids tackled me and we had a funny picture taking session of ourselves. It was great!
