A New Old Wicker Desk

Way back in December I found the wicker desk I've been searching long and hard for.
Guess how much it was....I found it on Craig's List.

$50.00 for the desk and a chair!!


The desk was nasty dirty with enough paint on it to make it stand up to fierce winds.
We waited for warmer days this spring and then sanded and gave a light coat of spray paint.
It's far from perfect but so cute!


This just gives a fun focal point to our bonus room upstairs.
Don't you love the picture stand?
I found that at Laurie Anna's Vintage Home last month.


I pulled out old pictures of my kids because as I've said before...
I can't stop looking at them.


Now to keep things real I had to include the picture below.
Sophie jumped up while I was taking pictures and proceeded to chomp down on the plant.
Sure hope it's not poisonous!


Love the ticking bag that my blogging friend Carol at Art and Sand made back in the fall. :)

Hope y'all are having a great day.
It's raining here.

It's a great desk and always in style. I think it looks better when it's cleaned up but not perfect. And it's nice to have some of your favorite things on top. Do you keep a journal...I like journals and writing paper on top of a desk. Enjoy your week! Hugs, Diane

I love a great deal on a pretty item! I am so fond of wicker. I had a few items that were found at garage sales for a few bucks. I used them outside for years until they finally fell apart, now I'm on the hunt to replace them. Your room is so pretty and the desk looks great!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

You got a great deal on the desk! It looks like it's the perfect size too. I forget how much Sophie and Holly look alike. :)

Until you mentioned it, I didn't even notice the ticking bag in the photos.

I love the little glass box with the colorful balls.

I've missed reading your blog! For some reason, I haven't been receiving several blogs, including yours, via email. I had heard that there were some problems with email delivery out in blogland.

Please watch your cat carefully with that plant. Its from the lily family and many parts of lily plants are poisonous to many animals. My sister had a bunny which she had trained to use a litter box and had freedom to run the house. One day she came home from work to find that the bunny had been munching on her spathiphyllum. The next morning her bunny didn't wake up. A coworker later lost a cat thanks to this same plant. In both cases the animals had eaten not only the leaves but the white flower of the plant as well. The flower seems to be even more toxic than the leaves.
