My $5 desk

So I told you how I am hooked on auctions and my recent purchase of a desk for $5.
It is great now but I didn't get any before pictures so you will have to take my word that it
was in pretty bad shape.  I didn't know what color I wanted to paint it and searched through my boxes and boxes of paint.  Red kept speaking to me so I thought, What the heck...
Let's go red!

Ok, so I have to still work on my cord routing...
but I was in a hurry to show you how cute this turned out.

Here is a close up of the glazing that I did.  I also spray painted the handles a brown.

Ignore the wires... just look at the cuteness.

I even put one of my flower frogs to good use holding pictures and coupons. I love the picture of the kids because it shows me that they really do (or did) love each other.  Some days I have my doubts.
There may still be hope that they will like each other again :-)
As Always, Karie

  1. Just a thought... I love the desk! You paint, I place! If it were my desk, I'd move it to the right so you could put the "box" on the floor to the left of the desk. Then it wouldn't look so stuck in the corner. Plus it would increase your work space dramatically! Then I'd take all the wires and tie them together with a coupe of wires and make it so they're not visible from the front. ...or not!
