I explained in a previous post that I need to relocate my office, since little Stormageddon will be taking over that room is less than four months (!!!).
After much debate over whether to hold out for the perfect antique or go ahead and buy something new, I decided to go with the latter, mostly because it would be easier to find and would give me more room to transform the old office.
Ultimately I decided to go with the same desk I mentioned in this post, except in black:
As much as I would have LOVED to have find a cool antique desk, this one was the perfect color and style for the decor in the rest of the living room. It was on sale. I couldn't resist.
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the desk, it's definitely quite solid. (Come to think of it, we've bought at least 3 other pieces of furniture from Target, all of which turned out to be surprisingly nice!)
Here's what our living room looked like pre-desk:
I feel kind of bad about this, but the recliner (which is officially Elvis's chair at this point) had to make way for the desk:
I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do about a chair yet, but for the time being I will probably just stash a folding chair between the desk and the fireplace or between the desk and the wall, then take it out as needed. Once I come up with a more permanent solution, I'm sure I'll be sure to share. Perhaps THAT will be the antique element in the room!
