    New desk?? Thank you very much, neighbors!

    Advertisements
    So my roommate ran into the house just now (yes, at 2am) saying that our neighbors were throwing out stuff. They have a huge pile set out by the trash can.

    2 weeks ago, she snagged a coffee table. Its a simple one, but it brings everything together nicely! So we went out there and rummaged. I snagged a desk! Yep! I'm so excited cuz I'll need one for my new apt.

    I plan on going to Habitat's Restore shop to browse for couches and a dresser. Then I'll pretty much have everything I need! Yayyyy I'm about to go wipe down the desk and check to see which screws need to be tightened. Hopefully time will tell if it was a good snag..but for free... I think yes!

    Here's the desk!



    Not too shabby for a first desk! Keep in mind that all my desks in the past have been dorm room desks, desks bolted to walls, and finally NO DESK. This is kinda a big deal to me lol. Its been cleaned up and screwed "screwed"...anywayyysss lol

    That's nice! My uncle had a deck in his office that looked kinda like that a few years ago, but he curb sided it when he got a nicer one.

    Don't you just love when people get rid of perfectly good stuff and just leave it on the side of the road like that.

    Thanks guys! I'm excited lol.

    Its in very good condition. Nothing is missing/broken/etc. I think they just chucked it out since they didn't have room. They're also getting rid of a grill..NO JOKE. I dont grill at all and I wouldn't be able to have one at my new place anyways. It just needs to be cleaned.

    Lets see...there are mini book shelves out there, some planting pots (which I may snag tomorrow), and random boxes full of stuff. I'll check in the morning lol
