This week I am going to focus on a few projects that came about with the help of friends. Today I will share my desk. Many years ago I found this old, heavy, silver monstrosity at a rummage sale for $10. It is very sturdy, typical for its time.
I love color, and one day rounded up a few friends to come help paint it. We didn’t know if it would work, but just went for it. It.was.a.big.project.
Big as in one day, but much funner with friends! I was facing a very difficult time. These women, Laura and Michelle, circled me and spoke love into my life through a pile of metal. A tangible thing I could carry along on life’s journey.
Laura added encouraging words along the rim a little later. Oh, and a surprise I didn’t see until much later underneath. Funny girl.
If you come across something that catches your eye, trust that you will find its true purpose soon enough. I experience love every day from far away friends as I use this trusty piece of furniture.
