Welcome, craigslist desk.

Say hello to my latest craigslist steal....

Love my new find.  I wanted to find another cheap desk so that I could create a work space in the basement.  I was tired of my Interior Design stuff completely taking over our dining room table for weeks at a time - or until we had company coming over :).

The only strange thing about the desk is that it has some sort of formica or veneer white top.  Seems random.  But, I planned to paint this anyway, so I wasn't too worried about it.  
I really love the delicate hardware.  I am wondering if I can somehow strip the paint off to get it to just have the brass look.  Need to research that...
Now I just need to decide how to paint it...I am leaning towards white to make it 'all purpose', but am contemplating a contrasting color on the bamboo detailing on the drawers?  I have never tried anything like that...


  1. Wow! what a great Craigslist find! I am a bit jealous!

  2. That's a beautiful desk! I have a love/hate relationship with Craigslist right now! :) Can't wait to see how you revamp it!
