On our great day of Junkin' my mom found this desk at our last stop and bought it. By the time we got home she had me convinced to trade this one for a smaller one I already had and did not like. I have been using my laptop at the table and it is not very comfortable and I have to move my computer every time we need to sit at the table! So she went home with mine and I headed to Home Depot for paint and knobs.
After a dark gray primer, a good coat of Colonial Red spray paint, new handles and a lot of elbow grease, I managed to finish my new desk.
I really love this new, much larger desk. I didn't realize how much I utilized this desk until I had to put everything into a box. It was a nightmare to try and find an envelope or a phone number. I almost cried when my Hubby asked for a phone number. I said, "Please don't make me go in there!" I used my best puppy dog eyes to get out of it. But, I survived and now love having my very own space.
