What to do with $2.50

For some time I have been looking for a new desk.
 My little table next to my bed was too small and I'm getting a sore back from sitting on my bed with my laptop.
So.... yesterday on Trade Me this little treasure came up.
Isn't she a beauty?!
And best of all.... she was only $2.50.
Yes! I know!!!

Underneath her - well, shall we say 'sea-creature' exterior -  is a solid wood desk.
So much potential. In fact she has already had a first coat of paint....

Then yesterday on our way to the park we passed a 'Garage Sale'.
How thrilling!
Awaiting my arrival was this magnificent chair!
When I asked the lady "how much?" I tried to look not especially interested. 
When she said "$5", it was all I could do to stop myself from squealing!
She said "You know, you might be able to paint it or something to make it a bit nicer"
Oooohhhhh she had no idea...... ;)
Watch this space.....

Meanwhile, last night I was somehow hood-winked into a sleep-over in our room.
I kinda like being hood-winked by these tricksters!
