Here's an old desk at the Habitat store I keep thinking about. Why you may ask? Well, I can see it's potential. I would strip it and re-stain it a darker color and attach the handles back. I actually like these handles. I saw a desk like this in an old movie the other day. The only thing about the desk is, it's huge! It may not look like it in the picture, but I don't even know how I would get this home. I'm sure it wouldn't fit in my Jeep. I need a work desk sooooo bad, the one I'm using now is just too small and isn't working for me. I work from home and am at my desk all day, so I really want my desk to be more functional. Here's the best part... it's $20.00.
I was also thinking, if I got this desk, I may put it in the Master Bedroom and start working out of there instead of working in the laundry room. The laundry room isn't insulated very well and it's freezing in here in the colder months. It would be much warmer to work back in the Master bedroom. It wouldn't be too much of a problem since I am sleeping in the guest room now, so I could still separate work from my sleeping area.
I'll let you know if I decide to get it or keep looking.
