Thrift Find

Squee!  Recently, I've taken to hitting up Goodwill on a weekly basis to scope out dressers and tables and desks.  Last week, I found the perfect dresser, but alas, but was from a smoking home and when I opened the drawers, it reeked. I found a desk at Goodwill. I was bummed. So when I was there this week, after dropping off 3 bags o' clothes, I saw this desk for $19 and squealed with delight!

With a little TSP, paint, and new hardware, I think she'll look perfect somewhere in my house.  I am thinking sewing desk. We'll see.
What kind of finish would you do on it???

Oh yes, I definitely see potential! Good luck and can't wait to see the finished product :)

I have 2 desks in my garage just waiting for me to get around to redoing them.
One will be turqouise-y blue with red round knobs and the other one will be mustard-y yellow with coral colored knobs. I a little wild I know, but I like wild.
Are you going to paint or just stain it?

Aggie - I def. think paint. I'd like to do a fun color and I am in love with turquoise and yellows right now.

That is so adorable! I have a dresser in that same style that's begging for a makeover as well. I'm thinking a minty pastel green or a really pale teal, I just need to get around to it. Can't wait to see what you end up doing!

$19?! Are you kidding me?! Lucky lady. I can't find a desk like that for anything close to $19 here.. more like $40! And I've been visiting thrift stores for a couple of months now. So irritating. That is adorable though and you MUST show pics when you're done! Can't wait to see.
