Since our daughter is really struggling lately more than ever (click HERE), her favorite thing is to spend time in her room and do crafts and paint. It’s her little safe spot. So I thought that I would look into getting her a desk for her upcoming birthday. I know she would totally love it. I had previously been looking on Craisglist for a while to find that perfect vintage piece, midcentury modern piece would be gorgeous like my friend Cassie (click HERE) just found for her living room, but I haven’t had any luck. So I might have to just buy one.
I want it to be smaller scaled, affordable, but with lots of storage for supplies but also be a little girly and pretty.
I have been shopping around and here are a few options I like:
| It is on sale for $199 which isn’t bad at all
This one has even better storage but is more than I wanted to spend at $369. I can’t picture pretty gold pulls on it too:
Or a customized Ikea version, but they actually end up being pricey too.
And here is Cassie’s desk which looks gorgeous and has just the right amount of storage. It’s so pretty! I’ve seen similar options at West Elm but I don’t even need to list them here because at $800-$900 they are out. Not an option unfortunately.
I think this set up is really functional and cool too, minus the cabinet in the center to make it function more as a desk. It could be used for many other things later in life:
As for desk chairs, she wants one that swivels so she can sit higher. I really love this acrylic one but at $179, I don’t think that will happen:
Love this one in all white at Overstock:
But the Ikea SKRUVSTA isn’t cheap at $149 either 🙁 It sure looks comfortable!
