Here is the metal decoration on top.
And finally, the five dollar desk.
So this fine day we spent $28 on 4 pieces.
Next up (I think the next day?) I ventured out for some Craigslist tables. 4 of these Thomasville end tables,
and this matching mirror (like it matters since they'll all be painted)
for $24/total. Since we really don't need so many end tables I am planning to cut the legs down a few inches and add pads on top for seating/benches for the yoga room or wherever.
In search of a coffee table, I picked this up from another Craigslist ad for $20.
The drawer is obviously out for painting. I am thinking about upholstering the top to make it more
These came from Goodwill. I was going back and forth on them for $20 when the guy offered them for $12 for both. After confirming from Chris that he didn't find them hideous, I splurged. I think just about every household in the 70's had these tables. I love their retro goodness.
Another Goodwill trip found me these matching, but more importantly WORKING, lamps...for $8/both.
Hold on, I'm almost done....I swear (for now anyway)
In search of a chair for the $5 desk, I found the $5 chair at Goodwill. I think this is going to be adorable with paint and new material.
And last but not least....another coffee table. I wasn't looking for one, but while at the property this past weekend, we came across these beautiful bamboo tables that had an open area at the top filled with sand and sealife. This is not even remotely in the same league, but since those tables were $900 and this one was $30, I think we can make an "inspired by" version that will be really cute.
This is Chris's favorite part. He is literally begging me not to paint over this.
