Visiting the dump

I went on an adventure to the dump in Sechelt today. They have an area where you can buy re-usable items for $1 each. They mainly had furniture - lots of chairs, a couple of desks, couches and some end tables. I found 2 items ripe for refinishing! I've been super inspired by the Before and After posts on Design*Sponge. It's amazing what you can do!

Item #1

I found this fab desk that I want to sand and repaint next weekend. I'll keep it an off-white but I want to introduce some colour on the shelves and inside the drawer. I'm going to search out wallpaper remnants that I can use for the shelves and drawer liner. I also want to add a funky knob to the drawer.

Item #2

I picked up these shelves even though I'm not a big fan of the rounded spindles. I'm hoping that by sanding then painting the shelves that it will become more me. If not then I can find a new home for it. For $1, it's worth the effort!
