Built-In Desk


Well I put the hubs on another project.  Good thing he loves me so much or my house would be bare.  We decided to finally tackle a desk to put in our kitchen nook.  We have gone back and forth on what to put there-a hutch, storage dresser thing, and finally decided on a built-in […]
