space of the day & craigslist find

As promised, I'm back with today's space of the day! I'm starting to really enjoy doing these because it really keeps me accountable to blog everyday.

In today's S.O.T.D, note the desk next to the bed acting as a nightstand. I'm currently doing something similar in a clients room. Remember this picture of a Craigslist desk?

I picked it up for $35 - steal! I was thinking of painting it a dark brown, but when seeing the great detailed top, I dreamed up other plans for it. It was my first try at staining, and although it was a lot of work it turned out beautiful. It's almost finished, I just need to top it off with polyurethane!

Once it's all pretty and done, I'll be sure to share - keep your eyes peeled for that later this week!


  1. I'm so glad you decided to stain it! I can't wait to see it. I love the room, too. Very serene with some great upholstered pieces!

  2. Can't wait to see how the desk looks. I love staining furniture because you always notice nice details in the wood that you might not have noticed before.

  3. I hope you'll post a tutorial when you are through. I'd like some tips on staining.

  4. ..if you have not already poly'd it, then what about bowling alley wax? it smells so good and has a great matte look....I love buffing....
    just a thought.

  5. Very nice. I really like that room. Will you be updating these photos with the credit? I'm curious where you found some of these images.

  6. I like this space a lot. It is my favorite so far!

  7. Love this space and what a great find. Would you mind sharing where the photo of the space is from?


THANK YOU for taking the time to share your thoughts. I appreciate each and every comment.
