Creatively Tuesday #30


First, please forgive me for not having Creatively Tuesday up last week.  I had to work on Monday, and Tuesday turned into a whirlwind of errands!  If you linked up something two weeks ago that you feel needs another shot at the love, by all means, post it again!!  

Here is what The Rustic Pig has been up to…

A sweet friend gave, yes GAVE me an old ironing board that I couldn’t wait to paint, but after seeing its beauty I decided to decorate with it instead and turned it into a table for my hubby’s office…

He loves it!

This past week, I finally found the antique french desk I had been searching for!!  After a few coats of paint and some stain, I was in love…
