Last weekend when Johanna and I went to snap some quick pics of the wedding dress I want to sale in Old Money Dallas. Across the street to our shooting location was an estate sale. They were hosting a garage sale on the furniture. It was late Sunday afternoon when we got to the house (4PM) and I wanted to see if they had any old Venation mirrors.
Well, turns out this particular house was famously known for its furniture. They were selling furniture that had been featured in magazines, but no longer had any use for. Since we arrived so late to the sale we lost out on all the mirrors. I am also in the market for a desk, but the one desk I wanted was already sold. As we were leaving a man associated with the sale told me he had another desk that was, aesthetically, in bad shape, but he looked at me and figured I could do something with it.
Apparently I look like a creator.
Or the fact he didn’t what to pay the storage on it. Meh.
One look at this desk and I told him yes.
I know. I know. This desk looks HORRIBLE, but look at those legs! Aren’t they sexy? No. Well, once I’m done with this desk it will be.
I really wish all the original pulls where still attached. The one pull left looks awesome. However, I guess it wasn’t meant to be.
I’m going to sand this desk down
Paint it in a high gloss white
Find modern brass pulls to replace all the lost or broken ones on the desk.
Once completed I’m going to place the desk in Johanna’s room for now. After she leaves I will find another place for it.
I know the desk is a sight for soar eyes now, but before November it’s going to look like a million dollars. Plus, I got the bad boy for free.
I can’t wait to show you guys the finished product!
