Desks for the Girls

Desks for the girls
Originally uploaded by Allan & Cheryl.

We were fortunate enough to get 2 desks off freecycle for the girls room. Michael already has a desk in his room (his was also from Freecycle). Allan spent the last 2 evenings driving to get them.

As the lighting is bad where her desk is - Melissa has also taken over Allan's old red desk lamp and our old office chair w/o the back. We tried every other chair in the house and they were all either too short or too tall.

Maddy is over the moon with her new desk. It is an actual Kindergarten size school desk that used to be in a school and it's bright red. She was jealous of Melissa's desk last night. Her enthusiasm cheered her Daddy up after he spent 2.5 hours in traffic going over the Port Mann bridge to get the desk and then driving back.

This means that the little yellow IKEA table has been passed on down to the twins - who were very excited to get it in their room.

Nice...very nice!

And how handy for the girls to have a place for paperwork and art. :-)

What a great find! I really need to check out the freecycle here. I just worry because I attract freaks. No comments from you Cheryl! :p
