The awesome gift
The awesome gift we gave ourselves
We gave ourselves the most awesome gift, that will keep on giving. We really needed a better work area in the RV. I usually do my beadwork, or work on the computer, at the little kitchen table. Or sometimes I will just work in the recliner. These options are kinda OK, but not really. The kitchen table is not real big, and the chairs are hard. The recliner works pretty good, but not really ergonomically correct. We had talked about making a work desk before, but then we kinda decided we really didn’t need one. Well, I decided that I,or we, needed a decent desk and chair. Here is what we came up with.
The two cupboards on the sides are deep and wide enough to hold my totes and boxes full of beads, leather, and what ever I need to do, what it is I do. We also bought an office chair, which makes a huge comfortable difference.
Al measured and decided what we needed, then built it to fit exactly where we wanted it to go. I carved the petroglyphs on the doors. I also decided we HAD to have the lizard handles. I mean really, what else would have worked so perfectly.
The top is formica, which will be nice and durable, and easy to clean.
I used the desk on Wednesday, when I decided to make a purse from my favorite pair of 501’s that finally bit the dust. I have never made a purse from a pair of jeans, but I knew how I wanted them to look. So I got out my sewing machine, scissors and leather. It was wonderful working on a bigger area that had plenty of room.
This is what I ended up with. The fringe and belt are leather. Yes, I am channeling my inner 70’s child, cause I really am one. What do you think?
We are also going to try and head down south, soon. We want to go to St. George, UT to visit friends, then got to Arizona till mid February. The problem is, we got a foot of snow in the last two days. We aren’t real sure we can get the trailer out. I am really crossing my fingers we can get out of here, soon.
