Last week I found a desk on Craigslist for only $20. I was immediately taken with this desk. It’s from the 1940′s with a cool design. So I contacted the guy, he got back to me the next day with a very brief and uninformative note, and I didn’t hear from him again. So I slightly harassed him with emails, insisting on my interest, because his ad mentioned he would be having an estate sale on Sunday… I didn’t miss want to miss out!
But when days passed and I didn’t hear back from him, I decided it must not be meant to be…. until he phoned me Friday night. So the next day we headed out there, bought it immediately, and took it back home.
When we brought it inside, I realized this is how much my husband loves me… he had noticed certain things that I hadn’t: the drawer fronts are all different and are all coming off, all of the knobs are different, the desk is HUGE, and it was full of many spider nests….ewwww! So I had to do cleanup immediately, to make sure we weren’t adding any new family members to our home… I’m pretty sure I vacuumed up a few generations of spiders!
We really don’t have the space for me to do these projects, I don’t know why I get these crazy ideas in my head… I can’t stand a mess in the house, but right now we have this huge beast taking up our kids play room, and a table upstairs in the middle of the living room waiting for the varnish to finish curing, crafts all over the dinner table, and dishes all over the kitchen. Oh, and piles of laundry to be folded….
I guess I should get off the computer and start cleaning house!
