I got this beauty off Craigslist and dragged my friend Jenny along for the pick-up. We met the owner at a storage unit and he didn't share my zeal of stuffing the desk in my trunk. We ended up driving home (with the desk successfully stuffed in my trunk!) with... the trunk open. On the freeway. With our two little guys in the backseat. Whatever works, right?
Anyway, here's the before. It was the man's childhood desk from the 60's.
It had been in his childhood home and when they moved it to the storage unit, it suffered some damage. Although that's great for me, since I got it discounted and Mike can fix anything!
So after some wood glue, clamps, paint, and hardware (whew!), here she is after:
It has two cutie pie little drawers on top and two wide ones below. They all got some pretty glass knobs that are like furniture candy!
Lining with fabric is so easy. I just measured and cut and then adhered it with spray adhesive.
I really love this one!
