Today’s Treasure

Unbeknownst to me, I guess I’m a bit of a leg man, because all I had to do was catch one glimpse of the beautiful legs on this desk, and I knew I had to have it.

I bought it a few weeks ago at a local antique shop, but we only got it home last week, with the help of DIY Doris and her ever faithful mini-van.  We don’t really have a lot of room left in the house for new pieces of furniture, especially ones this big, so we had to do some shuffling around, but I think it looks quite nice in its new place in the corner of the dining room.

According to the man I bought it from, it used to have a leather top, but he said that it was in very rough shape, so he removed it and sanded the top down to remove the leftover glue and adhesive.  Therefore the top of the desk has this very conspicuous inner patch that is not walnut, which the rest of the desk is.  I love its simple style, its two pull-outs on either side to increase the usable area, it’s weathered and worn finish, and of course, its legs.
