Old School

I know I said I'd slow down on thrifting until I start and finish some projects, but my baby wanted to know if the desk I just bought was for her. It's kinda like when you fix your child a plate of food then fix yours...they want to eat from your plate even though they have their own. (it always comes back to food for me LOL). Anyway, I told her we could share, but knew it was time to get her own. Blog Sis is giving her a vanity, but when I found this, couldn't resist.

I was very happy to come across an "old school" school desk that will be perfect for her to grow into. It is already a cute turquoise blue. Plan to paint to wood purple (of course) and stencil on flowers (or butterflies, even!).

Best part...it was priced at $29.99 but I talked them down to $19.99. My first successful negotiation! Shine and Savvy would be proud.

AHHHH! That is fantastic!!!
Where did you find it!?!?!?!?
She will look so cute coloring and doing homework there :)
You have to post "after" pics.
And I AM proud of you! Way to ask, hey, never hurts, worse they can say is no.
It is precious.

Thanks, Shine! I love it, too. Working on it THIS weekend. I got it from CCA in The Colony. They have another on that is not wood, but still has potential. But didn't have to have two. I think one will make it even more special.

I always love a good trash-to-treasure find! My hubby and I love that kind of stuff!
