crocodile tears...

So my fab friend, Keyse, posts some of the most kick-ass craigslist finds over at her blog, Crocodile Tears... Being a loyal reader and friend, I scope out her postings daily and drool over most, wishing to god that we had a bigger apartment to fit all the eclectic furniture in...

Needless to say, she posted this beautiful desk from the 60's last week and I had to scoop it up!



"How much" you ask? ummm a mere $80!!! serious score.

Considering I'm about to spend the majority of my days at my computer, I figured I'd be much better off with some desk space and a chair that my feet can touch the ground at (my old setup was pub-table-height, not too conducive to good posture). Now all I need it some cute fabric to recover the vinyl with and I'll be good to go!

"What did you do with the old desk?" you ask? Well, we actually put it over the old microwave stand, giving us some much-needed extra counter space! clever clever...

AW i love that you got it! i was going to snag it, but i want a different chair (i need to be able to swivel when i get distracted :) and i haven't moved in yet and blah, blah, blah - long story short, it looks LOVELY and you are definitely motivating me to come back to this style of desk in october!
