My thrifty love . . .

Oh Craigslist how I love thee.

I have been looking for a desk for McCartney's room for months. I found a fabulous one on CL for $40 and they said they'd accept $30. The wife then interrupts and says she'd give me the matching dresser for $15. Jackpot! They are super heavy nice peices with metal drawer slides and everything. Love it.

We already had some mistint paint that we had put aside for the desk when we got it. We are not completely done with the trim paint, but she insisted on posting pics . . . so here ya go.

I've been digging deep into CL all day and have found nothing this cute. Dang.

Lisa, she just has a skill. I don't have it either.

I love how it turned out. I see your daughter is a fan of pinkandpurple too!

Lisa, it took me about 5 months of perusing CL to find the desk I would drive 45 minutes to get at the right price.

I stalk CL sometimes 4 and 5 times a day. Our list is relatively small around here and I LOVE the search function, but it does take the fun of the hunt out of it! :)
