One of the cardinal rules of thrifting is: Go often. If I have time to kill or am in a certain area, I like to pop into certain thrift stores, even if it is for a few minutes.
This gem wasn't even off the palette from being rolled out of the back room when I spotted it across the shop. It was like a scene out of a movie. A stunning, yet slightly flawed, hunk of industrial desk-ness just beckoning me to take it home. Erin, for only $12, I can be yours...Deal.
Sure, it has a few dings, but it has gorgeously filled the void in my entry way that I've struggled to employ. The Nester likes to says, "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful", and I've really been trying to adopt that sentiment in regards to decorating my house.
The little stool, that I have been using as a chair, was also a thrift find. Together, they're like a match made in secondhand heaven.
I am linking up with The Nester every day in October for #write31days.
