Treasure Hunting

This week marks 2 months for Justin and I as homeowners!  Woo hoo!  We already have a lot of furniture and decor so our house isn't bare, but we do need a few more pieces of furniture.  And, I'd like to get some new wall decor and accent pieces along the way.  Sooooo, I've been bargain shopping at thrift stores and garage sales and boy have I been finding some amazing stuff!  A few weeks ago, I stopped off at an estate sale and found this beauty.

Since we don't have any kids, I'm using one of the extra bedrooms as a craft room =)  I needed a work table/desk but wanted to find something inexpensive and something functional.  When I saw this little gem, I yelled out in excitement (seriously, everyone was looking at me like I was a crazy woman).  I called Justin right away so that we could load it up in the Pathfinder and take it home.  And guess how much it cost...only $25!  That made me giddy.

After about a million bajillion attempts to get it into the room and me on the verge of tears with thoughts my perfect little desk not fitting through the door of my perfect little room,  we finally had to take off a hallway closet door in order to maneuver it into the bedroom.  But I think it was worth it, don't you?  


  1. I LOVE it and the color! What a find!! And I'm jealous of your craft room. I'm thinking of turning my dining room into one! :)

  2. You should Amanda! Until then, you can come over and use mine and we can make fabulous, cute stuff!
