I thought a desk would be a good idea seeing as it was benefitting a school. I scoured Craigslist but didn't find the perfect thing. On a whim one day, I stopped in at my standby Goodwill. There it was. A sweet little student desk and chair.
But that's not the best part....the set was priced at...WAIT FOR IT...$5.99. FIVE NINETY NINE!! Dovetail drawers and sturdy. I ripped the tag off and ran to the register.
I decided to paint it a pastel green and then tone it down with some Early American stain and some distressing. I thought about doing the chair the same green, but didn't want it too matchy. So I painted it white and distressed it. I recovered the seat with some fun, girly fabric and also used it to line the drawers.
Here she is...ready for the auction!
I hope she brings in a little money....or at least a few bids!
