It always amazes me what people will throw away. One day early last year hubby came home with another as he calls it "freebie of the day". I could not believe what he brought in! Someone had spray painted an orange color on it, and white on the corner. Plus there was a piece of the wood missing too. Do you want it he asked? Now what kind of a question was that? Of course I wanted it!!!
He had to go back and look for the drawers since they were thrown out separately.
And then he found this chair that I'm assuming went along with it.
Look at the feet!
So, I finally brought it out of my craft room and put it into my office along with my other desk. I had to move some things around, but I believe it will work just fine. I love natural wood, I really do, but I have been debating about painting this one. I know that this desk is pretty well made as the drawers are all done in a tongue and groove with no nails. The seat needs a new cover, no problem, but since he repaired the wood on the top and side I have been thinking of painting it. Plus he added those white knobs since it did not come with the drawer pulls which I'm sure I could find some that would look good later on.
I have been so busy rearranging things in the house, and also my cabinets! (Thanks to my daughter who has been telling me how she has been cleaning out hers) Things were just piling up too much in them so they needed to be cleaned out and re-done. Of course since I took the desk out of the craft room area, and changed the furniture around in there I now have a lot more room. Of course I also have a ton of plants sitting in there too since it has been toooo cold to even think of leaving them outside.
Anyway, now not only do I have some other cabinets to paint (yes, I still haven't done those!!), but probably unless I strip it and refinish it, I will have a desk to paint too! At least while it's cold I don't feel guilty being inside!!
