We started with a Walmart desk, but it was just looked and felt cheap so we returned it and started hitting up all the thrift stores. We decided to find a wood desk and paint it black, all thanks to the personalized guidance of my sister-in-law's experience painting furniture.
We found this desk for $20, the side table for $10 and the mirror for $15.
Taylor's been busting his butt sanding, painting and sealing and it's looking incredible. His mom and sister have been a lot of help in making things look professional. If we had more space I might consider making and selling some.
We finally feel comfortable and homey in our place. I was really kind of sick of our apartment, but now I love it. Stay tuned for the "after" pictures later this week.
