The only thing better than finding an awesome vintage piece is getting it for free!
That’s right folks.
F. R. E. E.
My dad picked this desk up 30 -ish years ago when schools were discontinuing buying these models of desks and they had a small surplus left over.
I asked him why he bought it?
“I thought they were neat so I bought it.”
(Apparently the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree).
It has been collecting dust in the basement for years. When I was in college he was going to get rid of it to de-clutter but I protested.
I had no use for it at the time except I too thought it was neat.
Oooo, wait… Isn’t that what hoarders say? Ouch.
So it collected more dust in the basement for several more years.
Little did I know it would be making its debut years later as the newest/oldest nightstand for my little men.
“Didn’t she just post about a different nightstand for her sons a few weeks ago?” …you ask.
Yes, I did (I change furniture around as often as I change my outfits).
I mean, will you look at this thing!
How perfect is the minty blue and pale mustard combo?
Could you die!?
After a quick looksie on the internet I found other Heywood Wakefiled desks that range in price from $75. – $200.00.
Did I mention mine was F.R.E.E?
(Yep, that’s what one would call gloating).
