Last Thursday, I spotted a desk with hutch at the thrift store. Someone had repainted it a rust orange and all the drawers were painted shut. I really liked the style but not the color. The price was $65 I left it there because 1. I didn't have enough cash 2. I didn't have a way to get it home 3 The color. I told my hubby about it and he said if I bought it he would get it home. I thought about it all weekend. I could learn to love the orange until I got it repainted and perhaps they would take a lower offer. I called Sunday morning and it was not to be. They had sold it the day before.
Yesterday, I took some stuff to the consignment store and decided to look around. I bought some clothes for resale, paid and left. They have an additional building where all their furniture is. I decided to take a peek. And I found a similar desk and hutch for the same price but in it's original color. I called my hubby and he said he would pick it up for me.
So I got it. But there was one problem.
See that piece of trim? My laptop would not open with that trim there. So I removed it.
Unfortunately, that did not solve my problem. I will need to get a slimmer cooling pad for my lap top in order for the desk to be functional.
Let's just keep this a secret from my hubby as he didn't want me to get a new desk.
