Found Furniture

I really did just find this desk on the side of the road a couple of weeks ago.  Someone must have been cleaning out their garage and had loaded a bunch of junk onto the curb.  Among the junk with this little treasure (or soon to be treasure).  We were driving the truck, so Lonnie and I just through it in the back.  It obviously has seen better days.  All the drawers were there, but were in need of some repair.  The front left side was missing the bottom trim piece and the desk top was pretty roughed up.  But, I still saw some potential.

We stuck it in the garage not knowing what we would do with it, but I just couldn't pass up FREE.  Now after a couple weeks of it collecting another layer of dust, I have decided that Dylan needs a desk.  So, it's going in his room under the window once it gets it's facelift.

I've been loving triangles, so it's getting triangles!  I sanded it down this weekend and got the first coat of paint on it while Lon was in Idaho visiting his dad.  But, with 3 kiddos all to myself, that's as far as I got.  The plan is to paint the triangles today (they are probably going to be metallic tones).  You can see on my Pinterest board here, that I'm digging gold right now.

Do you see the potential?  What would you do with this desk?  Color, Pattern, Finish - any ideas?


  1. So fun! Personally, the geometric trend isn't my cup of tea, but I know it will be so fun. I'd probably paint it some stand-out color like red or green and stick it against a white wall. I'm excited to see your progress! You go girl! :)

  2. The geometric patterns are definitely a trend, but they kind of have a global/tribal feel to them as well. I have a lot of artifacts from my travels, so this pattern kind of works with my things. We'll see, if it's ugly, I'll just sand it and repaint it.
