Going Where I've Never Gone Before

Salvation Army made me a happy woman again! One evening after grabbing Jai from school, I decided I wanted to stop at the Salvation Army - I hadn't been in a few weeks and wondered if they would have anything to tickle my fancy. They never disappoint me...

I thought about this desk and went inside to see if there could be anything else I saw that could win me over before the desk. I thought about if I even needed another desk since I still haven't gotten around to painting my  Sweet Secretary Desk that I blogged about. I am a little apprehensive about painting the desk. I am trying to talk myself into it.

I paid a mere 30.00 for this desk - check out those pulls! I won't be swapping those out for anything new - I am going to spray paint (eek!) them gold.

After considering a few colors ~ Navy Blue, Plum, Burnt Orange, Evergreen... I decided, I am going to do something I would never do... BLACK! I am going to make a pitch to the family on the location of the desk because I have such great plans for it. Stay tuned for the after, its coming really soon. 

Black furniture is truly going somewhere I have never gone before and I couldn't be more excited!

Its a great find, I LOVE the hardware gold will be perfect with black. The style of the desk is going to look so good in black, can't wait to see the after.
