Craig and I – On Again

Craigslist and I have an on again/off again relationship. He’s like that guy who promises something awesome, but then you end up waiting by the phone for him to call. He doesn’t call and you end up dreaming of what could have been.
If you couldn’t tell from my intro, Craig has caused me some serious heartbreak over the past few weeks. I’ve been trying to find the perfect desk for about a month now, but every time I find one, it’s already gone…sigh.
Yesterday, Craig came through! I’m in love!

I was so nervous that it would be some particle board POS, but look at those dovetailed drawers!

I'm definitely keeping the hardware!

Despite my mom’s objections, it’s getting painted. Probably white with a dark walnut top.

Desk – Craigslist $75.00
Right now it’s living in my garage (if you can’t tell from the crap pictures), but it’ll soon be the first piece of furniture in my office!


  1. Great Find!!

    P.S., I think we're seeing the same Craig! LOL

  2. I can't wait to see what you do with it! How fun!

  3. I think that desk is awesome....I agree, the hardware is a keeper!!!

  4. Craig is just a typical guy - just when you are about to dump him, he does something to reel you back in. We women are so easy. Paint that fabulous and post so we can drool.

  5. I can't wait to see the transformation.
