Well it's officially the holiday season at the Besotted Brand headquarters. I thought I would have a week to get ready, but orders from around the globe are coming in for holiday.  Did you read that?  Around the globe!  I am out of my mind with excitement whenever I get an order from another country.  Please don't get me wrong, I am thrilled by the beautiful U.S. of A clients (that's a given) but I am astonished that people in places like Singapore, Sweden, New Zealand, Brazil, Great Britain, Australia and Israel know about my little ol' shop.  It sets my heart a flutter, that, and I am still trying to figure out my shipping mojo. Really, it's not that I have a million orders, it's just that it takes me a little bit  longer than the average bear to wrap everything up.  I am hoping to get magically faster by this next round of send outs. 

I have a handy man coming over tomorrow to give me a quote on installing a couple desks like this in my studio. If it's a good price I will stain them a darker brown than the example.  I need a bar height one desperately so I can pack orders (no fun getting a hump back now is it?) I have an idea for a larger piece that will go in the middle of the room. I really liked the idea of this craft table (alas no room and no budget for it).  I was planning to DIY this piece myself but I don't want to be stuck with an unfinished project in the middle of my teeny, tiny space. If it is all a go I promise to take some after shots. Anyone try to make a desk before?

Well, now you know I'm a sucker for a good flourish! ;)

As soon as I saw the picture of your dream table, I knew I've seen a DIY version of it before. And then I spent 20 minutes looking for it online, but no luck. Sorry. I do remember that they used these open bookshelves from Ikea for legs, and a great big slab of wood for the top. So while it won't have the carpentry decorations like the original one, you can make a version of it for a fraction of the price until you can afford it. This coming from someone who has her own DIY table.

Well the Miss Susan I will know what to include in your care package;)

Naomi, I was thinking of something along those lines, I am hoping to be able to sneak away to Ikea for an hour tomorrow. Thanks for looking for the DIY:)
