I have a thing for Orphan Furniture. One of my very first posts was this desk redo.
My style is not the type available in my most furniture stores. I like color and curves and strange hardware. I like IKEA but there is not one in my state. Instead I decorate with random furniture I find in trash heaps or buy cheap at yard sales or on Craigslist! It adds character to my home and I don’t feel so attached to it that I can changes things up often.
This beauty was scored for $30.00 at a garage sale down the street from my home. It is large enough to store my craft supplies and spare dishes,etc. I just love the little side doors.
This is before all our DIY work! It was ugly, a little scratched and one corner had a weird green tint.
Afterwards, it is a beauty that even has a hole for baskets to store things I need to get to quickly. We have the extra drawer in the garage in case it is ever needed when we sell it or pass it on.
