So, I convinced him to stop and check it out. I was holding Ellie so I made him get out :). He was out there forever. We didn't mean to take the puppy yardsaling so we didn't want to get her out. He was looking at it so long though I decided to get out and check it out.
It ended up being an old typerwriter desk. It is huge and doesn't need refinished or anything. (it will in a few years, but not anytime soon.) And, she only wanted $100 for it. We paid and promised to be back later to get it.
Dustin went back later and they said that they had 3 offers while we were gone. One lady offered them $150. Luckily, they stuck with their original sale and this now sits in our office/the room above the garage.
I am really pumped about the BUILT IN storage in the top left drawer! =)
The whole right side isn't really drawers. Instead, that whole part that looks like drawers opens so that the typerwriter stand can come out.
I don't have a photo of it pulled out yet. I don't really understand it, haha, and it is spring loaded so it seems to be a finger pinching trap. I'll have Dustin to that so I can photo it. We're not really sure what to do with this space yet either. Printer? Maybe. But, we think it is pretty cool! A press board desk would have cost us $100 and we got this beautiful, old, oak one for that! We LOVE new old things :) -- especially when we think we have a deal!
Now, if I could just get this puppy a bit less "puppyish" so I could work upstairs on it instead of at the dining room table :). The upstairs is a "puppy free" zone still so Margot has a sanctuary until they get used to each other. Currently, Margot still wants to claw Ellie's eyes out. Ellie, although deathly scared of Margot, really just wants to lick her and play. They have been nose-to-nose a few times and are doing MUCH better... we still have a bit to go though!
