Of course, my old desk didn't really mesh with the whole beachy, cottagey, vintagey vibe I was going for in the living spaces of my home. It belonged to my grandfather, so it's got sentimental value, but it had to go.
So I decided I needed to go shopping. It was a tough decision and there was a lot of arm twisting but I forced myself to go to Country Roads again.
Remember I said in my last post that I got a new piece of furniture?
Here it is!
When I saw this desk and chair it was love at first sight. Probably because there was nothing I was going to have to do to it - it was perfect already!
Since I spend so much time at my computer blogging and creating blog designs, I decided I need to have a comfortable space that focused on things I love.
Like Pottery Barn.
(Wire basket for mail, ironstone bowl filled with moss, and mercury glass candle -
sorry my flash went kind of crazy)
And this guy.
The only thing I purchased was this bottle I found at Marshall's. I fell in love with the little butterfly topper, and the best part is it was on clearance for $5! The bottom book is a signed Judy Blume from when I was a kid, and on top is my grandmother's old German Dictionary.
My favorite part:
Apparently Shelley Smith had a thing for Brian Gibbons.
I used my Pottery Barn knock-off frame to hold my calendar and a few of my favorite photos.
So there it is, my new work space! I'm thrilled with my new desk. So thrilled that I went and picked it up by myself, even though Rick said he'd go with me this weekend. Yeah, couldn't wait. I then proceeded to bring it in the house by myself. It was kind of heavy. I'm impatient like that.
Have a great weekend! I'm hoping to get a nap in tomorrow...but I'm sure my kids have other plans...
