Remember when I introduced you guys to this sad little nook?
Then, remember how I improved it ever so slightly with my DIY corkboard?
Well, thanks to a trip to Ikea a couple of weeks ago, my little nook is lookin’ up:
Like, 1000x better, right? Yeah, I thought so, too. The desk is the Micke desk in white, and it is a perfect fit for this space! I fell in love with the idea of a Parsons style desk, and this still gives me that same kind of feel without the price tag of an actual Parsons desk!
My hubby is pretty adamantly opposed to wicker furniture indoors..he just thinks it’s way too uncomfortable. I, on the other hand, have a small obsession with it. So I was able to get away with it here since I’m the only one that has to sit in it! It’s the Agen chair, BTW.
If you’ve read this blog for any amount of time, you’ll know that we put our sanity at risk pretty much every time JP and I attempt to assemble IKEA furniture together. So, I decided to try and tackle this desk on my own, and I’m pleased to say I made it through with nary a hair pulled from my head!
Obviously, I’m majorly lacking in the color department up here. I’m planning to recover the chair cushion in a fun fabric and hung something colorful on the wall behind the desk. I’m even considering trying to customize the desk somehow..we’ll see where that ends up!
For now, I’m just enjoying having a little place to call my own!
