A Little Desk-perate

Since the semester is finally over and the summer has begun, I've finally been getting around to the things I should have done a long time ago. After this summer I move into my student teaching semester and then graduation (!!!) so I really needed somewhere a little more organized and ready to take on a full teaching work load. And that looked prettier.

The chaos of my desk before:

Needless to say there was not very much work going on in this corner. Just looking at it I feel panicked. Not good. Since my roommate Karly moved back to Alaska (sad face) I decided to take the desk that I had originally purchased for her room way back when and put into mine. 

Here's the switcheroo (and of course Lucy investigating. Cat.):

At least she's kinda cute....

After I chased her off and rearranged a little bit...

It's not very comfy on the wrists to have the keyboard on top like it is so I want to convert this little top pull drawer into a keyboard drawer. I think it'd be fairly simple and would look way better.

But for now this is the set up that I have going. It is much better! It first of all looks way better because it coordinates with all the other white furniture that I have in my room but it also has those handy storage drawers. I can fit stuff inside of them! It's magical really.

Here's an angle of the whole "office" corner:

When I grow all the way up I am definitely going to have a separate office area so that I can have my bedroom for it's original purpose but for now this definitely works much better then the old desk situations that I've tried. Not too bad for a thrifted $30.00 desk!

What do you guys think of the switch? Better?

  1. Love it! I'm a little jelly really. My desk is a claustrophobic panic attack and nowhere near as girly. The mirror above makes it so multi functional and gives it that girlyness I wish mine had! Definitely inspiration. Thanks for sharing! :-)

  2. Maybe it's not as comfortable (yet), but it's SO much prettier! Ack, I love it!

  3. This was very inspiring! I finally reached the point in life where I do have a separate office space, but it somehow gets even more disorganized than when I had a desk corner. Now I'm determined to get my space organized again. Congratulations on graduation!!!

  4. I love the pops of color, it looks really good. Thanks for linking up to Beyond the Picket Fence.

  5. "when I grow all the way up" - lol - love it! I will have to start using that phrase :) Yes, I am totally going through all your old posts right now :)
