Score!!

Typically my blog posts are about some great thing I saw and didn't get, or that I dream of having, but today I'm pleased to report that this time I scored. So, you know how much I love bamboo furniture. I'm drawn to it like a moth to a flame.  In it's natural state, it looks very Asian, but I also love the fact that it looks so great painted. There's something so fresh and modern about it.

 It's one of the things that I search for on Craigslist almost daily.  As you know, I've mentioned bamboo furniture already in a handful of posts.  Remember these chairs





Has there ever been a more versatile type of furniture?

Needless to say, when I saw this $20 beauty on Craigslist late one night, I almost sprang out of the bed. 






After calling the owner the next morning and realizing that it was still up for grabs, I scurried 35 miles to get it as quickly as possible before someone else did.  You should've seen me and the owner trying to figure out how to get this desk into my coupe.



Thankfully, we finally did. I'm going to use it to replace the bookshelf next to my bed.  It's one of those pieces that I purchased when I was just starting out and never got around to upgrading.



I'm leaning toward painting the desk white, but something like this one.....



... is really tempting too.  I'm so excited!  I can hardly wait to work on it.  I'll definitely let you know how it turns out.

Also, on Wednesday head over to Jennifer's blog to check out my first ever guest blog post!  I'm talking about one of your favorite topics...closets. 


Like the new desk?  Do you hink it should be white or a color? Leave me a comment.  I'd love to hear from you.

Awesome find! The desk should definitely be painted a color. Maybe pink or gray? :)

Great desk! You do have to get the best buys off of CraigsList early. I vote to paint it yellow! It is awesome--make it center stage in your room.

Thanks Linda! Yellow is a great idea. I've already put it in its space now I'm just trying to decide on paint.
