Why you ask?
Well it's not because it's been like FOR-E-V-E-R since I've posted one.
No, it's because this Treasure was spotted by none other than the Lil' Man!
He's not only good looking, great at....
You see, this all started about 6 months ago. Lil' Man decided he wanted to buy himself an IPad.
So, he came to me and ask if he could help with making over the Treasures we gathered for some $$$.
I told him I loved that he was interested in helping but other than prep work or cleaning up, there wasn't a lot he could do.
Now Lil' Man, being the entrepreneur in training that he is, said "how about if I find furniture? Would you pay me?" I said "Sure, if you spot something on the sidewalk or at a garage sale and I can use it, I'll pay you a couple bucks" He sat and thought for a second and said "How much?"
I said "I don't know, I guess it depends on what type of piece it is"
He sat for a second longer and said...
"I don't want a flat fee- I'll take 10% of whatever it sells for"
All of the sudden Lil' Red chimed in "Me too!"
And so began the next six months of interesting car rides with my children- each screaming "I SEE A (fill in the blank) IT'S MINE- I CALLED IT"
For one reason or another so far, it hadn't paid off for the kiddos.
That was until the other day when Lil' Man was on his way to school and he spotted the desk.
I can only imagine his friends face when he told him "Hang on- let me take a photo of this desk and send it to my Mom" HA!!!!!
So there I am, on my way to work when I get this text from the Lil' Man- "Mom, what about this? Is this a good piece?"
I smiled from ear to ear all the way to work.
Now I just need to hurry up and sell it so I can pay the darn kid!!!
Here's a better look at the side of the desk....
Jenny has been my #1 furniture fan so far.
I just finished working on a bench for her outdoor seating area and arranged for Mr. Treasures to drop it off.
Any suggestions on what to paint it?
