Jackie's Craiglist Desk Makeover

I love a good craigslist find and makeover project, and Jackie's desk for her office took my breath away last week

The seller originally wanted 400 dollars for this bad boy, but she managed to score it for about 1/4 the price

Here is the before



and the amazing after



a desk like this could easily sell upwards of 1000 dollars! Great work!

  9. Nicely done!! I'm god awful at DIY. I think if you look back about 3 or 4 months in my blog I did the 'before' post to a DIY project for a dress and that said dress is still an unfinished ball of fabric in the corner of my room haha.
