Can I just say that I am so happy right now over my new desk that I am just goofy? Seriously - I have wanted a better scrapping area for so long that I can't even remember. Originally I spent $300 on cubes from Target that have a desktop that goes with them. I loved the storage part of the cubes but from the beginning I didn't like the narrow desktop (19") or being up against the wall. But I couldn't figure out another way to organize my room so that it would work and I hadn't seen a desk that just thrilled me. So for Christmas, I asked for money, I consulted the Peas and they pointed me in the direction of a desk from Target for $199 + $60 shipping. It was exactly what I wanted! I knew I could get that much for Christmas. Then I did a little research after someone else mentioned that Ikea had a similar desk. Lo and behold, they had THE VERY SAME DESK for $90!!!! $90 people!!! So as I've mentioned, I took a little trip and got me a desk. heehee
I love it!!!!!!! My sweet, dear, precious husband put it together Monday even though he was sick and it was his last day off. We moved everything around and put it behind the couch in the Den. The computer is now upstairs which is good since I'm addicted to the internet and never scrap. I haven't scrapped on my new desk yet. I've organized and organized some more.
So the very top picture is looking in to my Den from the kitchen....this pic (to the right - click to enlarge) shows how I have my cubes now. They're in the very same place as they always were but I scooted one set under the desktop where I used to sit. There's room for one more set but they're no onger being made. Target just came out with a new style of cubes that are similar, I'm going to get a set of those and slide them in if I can find them in my area. The set on the far left are Store In Style by CIS. The top drawer holds my paper. I need more drawers so I hope I can find the newest Target cubes. If anyone has seen them in Nashville, let me know!
Now here's a pic from the other side of my den, looking toward my desk. I am facing the tv now (armoire) so I can watch tv and scrap. BTW, the desk top is 59" long by 29 1/2" deep and is perfect. Just big enough without being overwhelming. I have my cardstock on the lower left shelf in a wooden crate. I love it!!!!! Sorry this is so long----just had to share! Let me know what ya think!
