New Desk…

Up until yesterday I used a tiny little Ikea table as my desk. It was red and in the shape of Mr. Peanut.  It was very cute but very impractical.  You see, I need storage space.  Homeschool papers, pens, crayons, pencils, erasers, scrap paper, glue, etc… nothing had a home because our house  didn’t come pre-equipped with any storage.  My desk had become a horizontal filing cabinet with way too many Sterilite drawer towers.

So yesterday we brought this lovely lady home.  She’s an old original school teacher’s desk and I love her!!  She has 5 regular drawers and one large filing drawer that is the perfect size for my camera and equipment.  And she has two awesome pull out tables.

I love it!

  1. Oooo sweet! I don’t guess I’ll be getting any such thing. Hubs was supposed to put in a call to a contact for me (long story, won’t hog your blog comments with details) but never did and I do believe it’s too late now. Oooo how I would love such a thing upstairs. Hubs won’t let me take his nice desk upstairs 😦

  4. LOL We have an identical one that I am sitting at as I type! We got ours at a garage sale for $7. They wanted $25 but we said we shouldn’t spend the money so he said he wanted to get rid of it and would give it to us for $7! We couldn’t say “no” to that!

  7. Wow, nice desk! My computer desk has no drawers or anything (cheap little walmart thing) and is starting to sag under the weight of my big old monitor…wish something like that {your desk} would turn up for sale around here! 🙂

    Of course, I’d have to get rid of two end tables, a lamp, and a wall to make it fit here. 😛

  8. Mr.Peanut? I am picturing your computer perched on top of Mr. Peanuts top hat.
