Houndstooth Desk Inspired by Grandfather- Part I
SEC DISCLAIMER: No, I am not an Alabama fan, never have been, never will be! I am a Tiger of LSU. My passion for nostalgia runs deep in my blood. This piece of furniture is not just an old child’s desk. It was my mother’s desk as a little girl. It was also my desk as a little girl. Now it belongs to my son. When I think of houndstooth, tweed or plaid, I remember my Dad’O, my paternal grandfather. I remember this photo of him and I when I was about 3 years old. When I find it, I will post it here. He always wore a hat like Bear Bryant with a sports coat, always! This project is just a way to preserve the memories of my family through the times when old thoughts fleet me.
I hope you find these tutorials useful. I will write this post in two parts. The first part will break down the step by step of the pattern project. Part two will show the overall transformation of the desk.
There will be three video links that take you over to You Tube for the step by step directions.
This project from Not Just a Housewife got me started.
