Fun Find | Jennifer V Designs | Toledo, OH

Yesterday, I met some friends in Sylvania.  Our intent was to meet for breakfast/lunch and check out a little clothing boutique.  Well, the store didn't open at 10 like we thought.  We had some time to kill before some other friends were meeting us for an early lunch, so we checked out some of the other cute shops on Main Street.

We went into a cute little store, Canterbury Home, a store filled with new and old items,  and my friend and I spotted this at the back of the store:

I instantly loved it, but I didn't want to spend too much money on it.  The worker heard my friend and I talking about it and said that a lot of people had liked it, but it hadn't sold, so he was thinking about painting it black.  YIKES, it was too cute to be painted black, I thought to myself. I knew I wanted to use it as a bedside table, but it could also serve a dual purpose as a desk later on down the road when my daughter needed one. I also knew that if it didn't work in my daughters bedroom at home, it would definitely work in her bedroom at our cottage.  And the pink was such a great pink,  kind of like a bubblegum pink. So the guy offered to discount it 30% and I bought it.

I got it home and I really like the pink.  I had thought I might have to change the color a little, but I'm liking how it fits in my daughters room and she, being 3 years old, thinks it's the coolest thing ever because it's PINK!!!!  She immediately filled the drawer with her books and told me numerous times that she thought her pink desk was beautiful and gorgeous!!!)

With the intent of going shopping for clothes, I came home with a desk.  Way more fun for my daughter, I guess!
