I have always had a very basic desk to put my computer on. It went from this, my very first refinish (which I loved for 5 years, but got sick of lately)
to this (which I never even ended up using)
to my current piece of blahness, which doesn't even deserve a full picture
Since I am redoing the office and making it the coolest room in the house (or so I hope), I wanted something completely, totally outside the box for my desk.
Enter kijiji. I found a desk on kijiji for $20 but I could barely tell what it looked like from the picture. I asked the man to send me more pics and I hummed and hawed about whether to get it. It was a teenager's metal desk and multi-coloured, but it was huge and the more I stared at it, the more I fell for it.
I actually googled the desk to see what it looked like before the scratches and dents.
OMG! It was a $379 desk
First of all, who pays that much for a freaking metal desk???????
SOLD! My friend Angie drove me in her truck to pick it up (along with a pool, I am so excited). We also managed to snag 2 free Muskoka chairs!!
I decided to paint the desk red and keep the white, because it is actually whiteboard and I can write things down and then erase them later. Woot. Great for when I don't want to waste a piece of paper or my pen stops working.
Here's the finished product.
It is a lot larger than it looks, and I love it. John even made a comment about how he likes it. I have to put a better chair with it. I am thinking about redoing my free wingback chair in a white fluffy material, so that it will be comfy for those nights when I am trolling my auction site!
More to come as the room progresses. Just imagine this red against a nice, soft gray wall, with the turquoise/red/black accents. I might just sleep in here sometimes!
