Ta Dah!

I finally have a desk! yahoo! I've been searching since October for the perfect desk at the perfect price and last Saturday the Lord blessed me. Here it is measuring 60" x 34" x 31.25". The doors to our home are exactly 31.50" inches across once you take the doors off. It was a perfect fit! The little desk I was using before was the size of the green mat in this picture- just a little bit more elbow room now.

A little bonus compartment on the left-a spring loaded shelf pulls out and gives you more space! Dan told me it was originally for a typewriter, I'm using it for my sewing machine. It's tucked in there with my batting, patterns and paint box.

The estate sale was selling it for $200 (yikes), I put a bid for $50 in case no one bought it. Went home and started cleaning out my studio to make room and at 3:30 they called! No one else wanted it, thank goodness. The Lord is amazing- I woke up that morning and knew it was the day I'd get my desk! Thanks Drew for helping me bring it home!

That is the same exact desk we have. I remember you mentioning it when you were over. Congrats on the awesome find!

That's so funny! What are the chances I'd find the same desk two days later? It's a great desk.
