Happy Tuesday, my friends! I hope that you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend. We sure did. My weekends are usually full of chores, but this one had a little time for fun, too.
GARAGE SALE kind of fun.
Like, I HIT THE JACKPOT at a garage sale kind of fun.
I left my house Saturday morning with some goals. My two younger children needed desks for their rooms. They are getting older (11 and 8) and more independent (sniff, sniff).
I actually found TWO DESKS in one day. I swear I could actually hear the angels singing.
This one was TEN BUCKS. Yep, you read that right. It’s one seriously solid and H.E.A.V.Y. desk, perfect for a high energy 8 year old. See that purple monster? It’s a pencil sharpener that belches every time you sharpen a pencil. Cracks me up every time.
I had plans to paint both desks, but my children refused. I’ll have to keep working on them. The kids, I mean.
Those fabulous desks aren’t ALL I found, no siree.
Check out THIS.
I actually found TWO of these Pottery Barn shelves, for $5. They were originally off-white, but I’ve already given them a coat of glossy white spray paint. They’ll go above the daughter’s desk, just as soon as the handyman gets around to it.
Can you hear the angels singing too? This was the kind of garage sale weekend that I DREAM about at night. Seriously.
I am linking up to thrifty treasures at Southern Hospitality. Check out the fab finds!
