Mixed Media...

I have a love for quotes and photography so I thought I would combine the two. Enjoy!

"Our words are meant to inspire others to greatness. It is a sin to use the spirit of another man as the garbage pail for our bitter spew. Men ought to be better for having been in our presence."

Furniture: Child's Roll Top Desk

A sweet child's roll top desk. It is definitely for a child as I could not sit with my knees under it. This piece took quite a while to get finished. The roll top had been painted a not so pretty green and needed sanded down by hand. I will be forever grateful to never come across another one:) I sanded and stained and sealed the drawers and tops. I painted it in a Benjamin Moore white. I thought the more neutral the better. All of the handles are original and the drawers are lined with green paisley cloth. There is also a writing board that can be pulled out.  After much hard work I think it turned out to be a very darling piece.  
Price: $175

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us... worship is pure or base as the worshipper entertains high or low thoughts of God. For this reason the gravest question before the church is always God Himself, and the most portentous fact about any man is not what he at a given time may say or do, but what he in his deep heart conceives God to be like."

Furniture: Cabinet

I found this small cabinet at a local auction. I believe it may have been for a t.v. It has been painted grey and duck egg blue. New hardware was attached and it was finished with a coat of poly. It turned out to be a cute little piece. 

Price: $60
