Creating More Work

Sorry guys, I'm at a bit of a loss this morning.  I think I've successfully caught up on the jet-lag, but I haven't exactly caught up on stuff around the house. Well, in all honesty, I pretty much created more work for myself once I got home.  We are planning a group tag sale next weekend with several of our friends and I need to get my act together!  Apparently in my mind, getting set for a tag sale also means finishing a few unfinished/untouched DIYs so I can demand a few extra bucks at the tag sale. That means, painting and reupholstering a few extra chairs and sprucing up this little luggage rack. luggage-rack


When I bought it a few years ago, I think I was under the delusion that we'd eventually use our tiny 3rd bedroom as a guest room.  This is the room now known as my office.


I'm also hoping that I can find the time this week... after 2.5 years... to refinish this awesome desk for hubby so we can finally sell his old IKEA desk.

The desk has only been residing in the basement since I scored it off craigslist for $25 over 2 years ago.  Tsk tsk, Self, tsk tsk.  By posting this, I'm hoping to shame myself into action.  I've always had a 2-tone plan for this desk since it's not in perfect condition.  My 2 options are:

White frame, stained drawers


via Design Sponge

Or the reverse: stained frame, white drawers


via West Elm

I think the desk will dictate which way to go once I really dig in.  Which direction will hide more blemishes?

What's your vote for the desk?  And please tell me I'm not the only one who creates more work to prep for tag sales?

Happy Monday!
