Blaze's New Nightstand

I purchased an old school desk for $5 and Blaze cleaned it up.

There were some white paint stains on the legs and inside the desk, but that was easily covered up with a coat of brown spray paint. I, also, painted the legs brass to match the trim on Blaze's bed and put antique gold Rub 'N Buff around the wooden edge of the desk.

The wood color did not match the rest of the wood in Blaze's room, so I covered the desk top with a laminated, vintage-look World map.

We seem to have recently acquired an outdoor cat, who finds it necessary to check out everything I do outside and pass judgement on it. She approved.

The desk is now Blaze's nightstand.

That's cool. I had something similar when I was little, but there was a seat attached. And it was painted an unfortunate teal. My parents weren't nearly as creative.
