What I got !

I promised to show off what I got in exchange for my Divine Dining Table. I couldn't be happier!

Ta-da!


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!

That is a great piece. It caught my eye, because I have a desk that is almost identical.
