I will do anything for a good deal, short of breaking the law, so when I saw my neighbors hauling this desk to the dumpster I JUMPED on it. I called someone to help me haul it in as I was walking outside to stake my claim.
I added some polka dot contact paper in the drawer, because they had seen better days. I though it was like a little smile every time I open them!! I think a pretty chair would be nice too, the one I'm using now is just one from the dining room table.
It does have some nicks, but I think it adds a little character, right? I've been thinking about painting it, but now that it's polar vortex season, that's not going to be happening til spring. Any suggestions?
