Another Cool Desk Has Come My Way. This One is by Lane. Got it Via Trade. Status: Available.
Ain't it a beaut? It cost me something I didn't really want to part with though.
How cool is this? The "Back" has two Tambour doors that cover the corners where you can hide your Gin (or Vodka, if you aren't Old School) for the Martinis. Gin and Vermouth in one Cubby. Shaker, Olives or Onions and Glasses in the other!
Yeah, the "back" is what makes this desk special. Unfortunately a lot of people don't have the kind of space to "Place" a desk like this so as to show it off properly. It would be such a shame to push it up against a wall.
So I got an e-mail asking if the Blue Vinyl Sofa that makes it's way in to some of my
pics was available. I've never tried or wanted to sell it. I've gotten TONS of
inquiries concerning it though! I kinda thought I might reupholster it some day. The
vinyl was in pretty good shape but it has some issues here and there. From just a
few feet away it looks Great! And it was hard to show those spots in a photo. So a
few people even came by to look at it. I've tried to dissuade all of them but the
former owner of this Lane desk was pretty adamant. In the end we decided to
trade an even swap. Now I have a hole where the sofa used to be! I have another
out in the Garage that I'll be bringing in as soon as I can clean it up and that will
free up a some space in there. But then, this will go in there until I can find a new
home for it...so as far as the Garage is concerned, for the short term, it's a wash.
BTW, what do you think of the new "flip clock" (OK, so it's not a true "flip clock", I
just don't know exactly what it's called!)?
