I heart Eddie Ross

Remember the mammoth beast curtesy of my bossman? Yes, it is still living in my garage. I was torn on where to put it, what to paint it, what to store in it...basically all I knew was that it needed a makeover. desperately.

Enter Eddie. When I saw the secretary makeover by Eddie Ross on his fabulous blog...I fell in love. Oh Eddie - please come to Atlanta and be mine! I will feed you and take you shopping. I will give you free reign of my home design. I will fatten you up and we can watch Dancing With the Stars together - or if you don't like that, then we can make prank calls to David Bromstad. It would be a grand time. And we would be best friends. foreverrrr.

Ok - enough creepiness.

Check out his fantastic before and after:

Me lovey. And that is when I knew what to do. I will paint the beast white - mirror the front window and place it in our lower bathroom to house towels, paper products, and maybe even some diapers (for when all my married-with-children houseguests come over...come on...ya never know when a blowout is due!) And it will hide the ugly but necessary bathroom products outta sight. AND it will still do it's job as a light reflector and decor uplifter.

Thank you Eddie. Thank you.

p.s. I hope you kick serious tooshie on Top Design! Go Team Eddie!

Oh Eddie - I have a very similar secretary that I refinished with my mom. I'm keeping it wood b/c it adds warmth to my all white dining room (we use it as a hutch), but I really like this. Super cute. Please post afters!

That is a great idea! I dream about the day when I have bathroom big enough to fit a piece of furniture that large, ha ha!

I love the wood but I'm also loving the white. It's perfect!

I think you should paint it... You can always strip it later.

I love the white! We did some minor white transformation to a kitchen table, and what a change!
