FREE

Last weekend MBM went on a bike ride with our neighbor, on those country roads, when he returned he told me he saw a couple dragging a desk to the curb. Since, the curb is my favorite place to shop I jumped in my car to have a look...It was of course love at first sight! Solid wood, eight drawers, in really good shape, but needs a little bit of love. And it had a FREE signed to boot! I needed some muscle to get it in the car, but, was afraid to leave this beauty, as someone else might spot her. So, I did what any good trash picker would do...first, I removed the FREE signs, then, I took all the drawers out and put them in the car. Who would want a desk without the drawers? Scooted home, picked up MBM and hauled this baby home! After we unloaded, MBM and I stood back proud of our find, ok, his find...he says, "Where are you going to put it?" To which, I said, "I have no idea, I just wanted it!" Look at the detail... Well, I know now, I am going to use it in my dressing room. When, I get around to polishing her up and making her pretty, I'll share!
