Dara's Office for Etsy

As I mentioned on the Facebook page last week, I've been trying to finish up Dara's office for my Etsy shop.  Yay!!! It is finished.  It combines elements of wood, leather, zebra and metallics.

The desk which could double as a dining table or library table features and "X" base with gold metallic trim.  I gave it a white wash finish.  The rug is real leather, cut in an irregular cowhide shape.  
Don't you love that computer!  I ordered that a while back from Elf Miniatures.  That one is a keeper for my personal collection.

Before Christmas I began experimenting with bending balsa wood.  I took a piece I had bent to form the curved back for the desk chair.  I applied a gold finish and upholstered the inside seat back.  The seat itself got a little padding and was topped with the same cocoa zebra print.  I had been hanging on to a piece of the pale blue and gold trim.  I thought it would pair nicely with the zebra.
I made the lamp before Christmas, too.  It has just been waiting for the right room.

The art pieces were fun to make.  They are held up with a little double stick tape.  Tiny mounting squares work well too.
I had a little help from my dad with the bookcase frame construction.  (He has more power tools.)  I added the dividers and gave it a nice navy finish.

Too bad my own office isn't as pulled together.  Hope you like it.
