Isn't she pretty??
I used to have this little table in that spot:
It was fine, but I have since decided that I prefer color in my accessories rather than my furniture.
This new-to-me little desk has history! character! It has a slide-out writing surface!
Perfect for a lap-top!
My grandparents' trunk still fits neatly underneath.
I love the top folded back, but it can also close if wanted.
Actually, that part is a little tricky, as the original hinges are broken. I'm on a hunt for new ones, but I haven't had any luck yet.
Other than that, this little desk was in remarkably good shape. There were/are definitely some dings and scratches:
...but I used a little Walnut "Restore-a-Finish" on it, and while it isn't a magical ointment, it does do a pretty good job of hiding minor defects.
Here's one last pretty picture:
I'm so glad it's mine!
