Look at this!!!








isn't this great??? My hubby and I were at browsing around in a few antique shops and found this desk and chair. Sadly in need of some renovation when we bought them, check out the end results. Pretty spiffy don't you think??? I absolutely love them! The color is so fab. The lovely new laminate desktop was created by a friend's hubby at his business. Didn't they do a marvy job? My hubby did all the other renovation, including stripping the desk and chair and powdercoating them. Can't wait til the grandbabies can create at this darling little desk!

I bought a similar desk a long time ago when I started teaching and painted and stenciled it. Too bad there was no chair for it. I love the red!!! If I had to do it over I would do something like that!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.

This is a completely stunning transformation. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
