New Computer Desk

Posted by

I've been searching for a computer desk for a long time. We had 'a perfectly fine one' as my husband says, but I sold it a while back. I have painted a few, but they were all too small for what I was looking for. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this sturdy vintage desk on CL for only $40.

I contacted the seller immediately.

I heard back from them a week later. I was told that there was a lot of interest in that piece, and the last offer was $60 and it would be mine if I was willing to pay more. I offered $70, but didn't hear from them for another week. I completely forgot about it until I got another email telling me that I sounded the most enthusiastic about it, and it was all mine if I was still interested.

Of course I was.

Once my husband got it home I couldn't wait to get started and I sanded it right outside in the cold and in the dark with the help of a flashlight.

My husband called me crazy (again), but at least he doesn’t have to work on the dining room table anymore.
