Pile of Wood = Artsy Desk

It starts with a basic sketch
"Let passion fuel your purpose"
 Some wood and a hubby skilled with saws and stuff..

A compass to always find my way & sunshine for happiness. 
Transferred the pictures from the sketch to the wood. 
 Burned the pictures into the wood. It's called Pyrography. I'm not that good at it but I just went over the lines transferred to the wood. Then got out the paint and colored in the lines,
Each leg had a different flower. 

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams." 
Compass side goes to the inside (belly side?)of the desk.

Front of desk- Moon to Sun
 Stained the unpainted areas with a warm walnut then comes three coats of Polycrylic. (Sand and wipe down between coats) I used four coats on the desk top because I figure it will get the most wear.

 Sides of the desk get a heart design and carry over the leaves from the top of the desk.

Sketched, burned, painted, stained Polycrylic 

Finished Desk!
