I am all about a good deal, especially when I see something and have a vision. Once in a while I will pop in Goodwill and Habitat Restore and if I'm lucky I find something worth buying.
Oh! If I have the room...we all know that dilemma!!
I have been looking for a desk I could craft on. (Which has somehow turned into a desk my hubby uses). That's what I get for downsizing. It's OK, I will get it back - this is all temporary.
This is what I found and for the low low price of $15, PERFECT!
A nice paint job and a little reupholstering and I have a desk set that will go in my home perfectly. And, since I was being cheap at the time of purchase I bought this wrinkly cut piece of material for .50. A little ironing will take care of those wrinkles. (Psst...I'm ready to change the fabric already but don't tell hubby)
There were a few cracks in the chair so I recruited hubby to help and fix it up for me. He tightened up some screws and added some more screws for additional support. He also added some putty and wood glue did a little sanding and the chair was ready to paint.
I wanted the desk and chair to be black to match my book shelves. Oh, how I miss my garage!
We did not paint the top of the desk. I am thinking of doing tile on the top of the desk or maybe some fabric and plexi-glass. Oh, the options I have, I really do give myself too many choices. Do you ever do that?
This was the quote I put on my Facebook tonight, "Sometimes I'm afraid of the things my mind comes up with" !! ... And, that my friends is the truth!
I can't believe I didn't get any pictures of my hubby upholstering the chair. This was a first for him, what is wrong with me? I must of been in the house drinking wine. Yep! That's the story I'm sticking too. ;-)
So, with that being said here's my before & after pics...
Well, this was an easy peasy project. And the whole project was less the $20. So, once I decide on new fabric and what I'm going to do with the top of the desk, I will be sure to update you. I am open to suggestion ;-)
Have a "CRAZY BEAUTIFUL" week!!
