I love yard sales. I have so many fond memories of going “yard-sale-ing” with my mom on Saturdays as a kid. It always felt like a treasure hunt. Of course back then we had to do a lot more “hunting” since we didn’t have GPS to quickly find where we needed to go or snap a photo of the yard sale sign with our smart phones instead of sitting in our car trying to find something to write the address on. Yard sales have gotten so much easier thanks to technology. I found this solid wood desk on a local Facebook online yard sale for $20.00 and I couldn’t believe it. It was just what I was looking for to use in my tween son’s new room and it was in such good shape.
I especially love the vintage wood handles and newspaper drawer linings. I also love that this desk was solid yet small enough not to overtake the room. The Wood & White style is perfect for this makeover look because it still allows some of the beautiful solid wood to show through and gives those cute wood handles a pop.
