Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a great weekend. Sorry I was MIA yesterday. My sister was in town all weekend and I needed a day to catch up. I finally took some time to photograph my new desk I talked about a few weeks ago. I mentioned I had limited space so I am very happy with the size of this desk. I am thrilled with how it turned out.
My desk is from the Target Threshold collection. I chose this one not only because I wanted a simple white desk, but the size was perfect at 34″ wide.
I chose brass and clear accessories because I wanted a modern, clean, and simple workspace. I think I achieved it!
I love my Kate Spade paperweight. It adds a pop of color and whimsy to my desk.
I framed 2 of my favorite inspirational quotes
“What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail.”
“Creativity is intelligence having fun.”
I wanted a bulletin board for inspirational images or other notes. I found this Nate Berkus one at Target and love it!
I also shared my love for flamingos, so I included a colorful print to tie everything together.
I wanted to create a chic workspace without breaking the bank. Here is the breakdown of everything I bought:
Threshold Desk $85
Brass lamp from Lowe’s $21.97
Black dish from World Market (similar) $1.99
Clear Tray from The Container Store $7.99
Gold Pencil Cup from Target $4.99
Nate Berkus Cork Board $12.99
3 frames from Michael’s $25.00
Kate Spade Paperweight $21.99 (on sale)
I am so happy to get this project done under $200. I eventually will replace my old Ikea desk chair with a new one, but it is not urgent. In the meantime if I have time to make a trip out to Ikea I may drape a sheepskin over the existing chair. What do you think??
Hope you have a great day!
