Table Top Mail Desk!


This week I got a wonderful surprise from Carol and her husband, of Firecracker Kid Primitives. I have been looking for a piece to put mail in, that is also a piece that I can decorate on and big enough that the cats won't knock it off of the bureau. Carol's husband filled my wish list and then some.

I have a place to put mail, and plenty of space to decorate with and I can say, the kitties are not too happy that I took their window spot, lol. They left it  unfinished for me, so I can do my own painting and antiquing. It is 25" long and I can't wait to finish it and decorate around it. I am thinking of going with a black and mustard layered paint and will be sure to show you a photo when I finish it.

Another thing I noticed how well their packaging is, lots of bubble wrap to protect the piece and padding in the cubbies for added protection. If you have ever wanted quality wooden pieces for your home, be sure to visit their etsy store, Firecracker Kid Primitives. They will also take custom orders, as well.

At the moment, I am working on some projects that I cannot share just yet, but I will be sure to post when the recipient gets her gifts. I am fighting off another flu, so working a bit slow these days.

Can't wait to see how you finish your 'mail box'. Are you getting lots of snow. Finally warmed up, was 50 today, so after the 20's it was warm enough to do yard work.

Love it! I'm sure you will prim it up very well. Owning one of Carol's pieces is one thing I still have to do!

This is beyond cute, Debbie. I absolutely love and being thoughtful as to let you do your own finishing is even more thoughtful of you.

Debbie, that shelf is darling. I have a similar one in the "shabby chic" style that I keep in the guest room. I like to fill it with pretty note paper and writing things for my company. Can't wait to see how you paint and decorate your.

Wow! Great minds think alike! I just bought an organizer for my junk are as well! Mine came finished in black and I hope it disappears on my little area that needed help...we'll see if it works or if I remain helplessly junky...haha! Sorry to hear another flu bug has found you...take care and feel better soon!
