Desk Makeover (tease)

I decided to get myself a crafting desk to help contain all of my, what I call goodies, and I prefer not to ask what the BF calls it.

So yesterday I found him at (of course) the Habitat Store. I feel like if people in my area donate furniture, that is where it goes. I had actually spotted him on Wednesday but the top is a laminate, and since I can't paint it, I was concerned that it didn't have a glass top. It cost $20, which was not a bad deal because structurally it is in great shape, but if I had to get glass cut for it I wasn't sure it was the desk for me. Well, I couldn't get it off my mind so I stopped by again yesterday after work to just see if it was still there. It was. So I wondered around just thinking about whether it would be worth it. On my stroll around the rest of the warehouse I came upon a dresser that was about 2 items down from my desk. on top of the dresser was a piece of glass. It was just sitting there, it wasn't meant for the dresser, it just looked like it couldn't find it's way home. Being the wonderful humanitarian that I am, I scooped him up, and placed him on my desk. Cinderella had found her glass slipper! It was actually meant to be on the desk, it just got misplaced! I couldn't contain myself, and paid for it right there.

Well, my Acura + big desk = wait for my BF to pick it up in his truck after work today!

I was just too excited to not show you the before pictures. That's right, I'm so impatient I couldn't wait 20 hours to take pictures so we had a photo shoot inside the Habitat Store.

Without further ado...

This project is sort of becoming a higher priority because I really need a place to put the stuff that has started to accumulate in the guest room, yes the one my parents will be occupying in 4 days.

So keep an eye out for the new and improved desk in the near future!
