We love to go garage sale-ing! There is just something about digging through stuff and finding a treasure!
Ruthie found this at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago:
I almost left it there because we really don't need any more furniture...but then I saw that it was only $1! Only a dollar for an antique desk!? We're going to start some preschool (homeschool) stuff with Ruthie this fall and what a fun place for her to "do school".
The desk top was in really great shape but the chair and metal base was quite scratched up, so a quick re-do was in order:
Step 1: Cover desk top with paper.
Step 2: Spray paint metal parts black.
Step 3: Spray paint chair green. (Ruthie got to choose the color.)
Step 4: Bring inside and get ready for school!
Doesn't she look smart! I love that she loves to play with books, even though she can't read yet!
So, I think it was a pretty good buy for $3 ($1 for desk, $1 for black paint, $1 for green paint).
