Our 25$ Desk from Craigslist
Back in January, Richard and I were looking for a nice, solid desk for Caylyn to do her school work on. We scoured Craigslit daily trying to find something solid but not outrageously expensive. What we found was this fantastic piece of junk. When Richard went to pick it up, he called me and said he thought I had just wasted 25$ but he did agree that even though it was in bad shape, it was solid wood.
So he and Caylyn went to lowes, she picked out a stain she liked and new knobs for her drawers. Together they spent two months sanding, stripping, and painting this desk. They repaired the damage and they put in new knobs.
