'The Desk that took a Year...'

Ok- I DID happen to have a baby in the span of that year-which did slow things down a little, but it was well worth it. Whenever I had a spare moment, I would sneak out to my garage and stencil a bit of it. There was plenty of sweat from a sweltering 120 degree garage in the summer and a bit of frozen fingers that wouldn't quite paint in the chill of winter. I ended up hand tracing each and every angle since I didn't like the bleed from the stencil. It was a tedious labour of love, but I will remember this project fondly.
