This writing desk was a Craigslist find and I think I paid $30 for it. It’s exactly what I was looking for and is totally suitable for my needs, (a space-saver with just enough room to set my laptop!). I knew I would need to re-finish it, as it had a lot of little nicks and scratches, particularly on the top surface. But I’m so happy with the way it’s shaping up!
Be sure to check back on Monday to see it all finished! ;)
