MID-CENTURY MODERN & FURNITURE HACKS

Friends and family might describe my side passion for mid-century modern furniture as an obsession. Ok, I confess, I did end up with five desks in our house at one time.  

I also like furniture “hacking” or the  art of making something from nothing. My best hack? I turned an Ikea bench into a mid-century modern wall  clock.

Both “hobbies” include aspects of design and creativity and I find I learn something new with each piece.
