A Desk for Jamie!



The hunt for a desk for Jamie has finally had a positive result! I've been working at a desk with broken drawers for over 5 years. Imagine the Feng Shui on that! During all that time, despite active looking, I have only found 1 desk that provided both Jamie-friendly functionality and beauty. That one was very expensive, so I think it was probably good that it was also too big for my current space. A picture of it has slipped into my wish box for the future though :)


In the meantime, I had gotten to the point of just wanting something that works. And I loved my old desk despite the broken drawers. I've had it since I was 12, so obviously my mom totally rocked at picking something I could grow into. (Thanks, Mom!) It occurred to me that I could simply replace the drawers if I could get some the right height and ta-dah! Ikea came through.


The new drawers are the right size, include file drawers (which I desperately needed) and despite the fact that "beech" was not listed as an available colour on the website or the floor, it showed up in the self-serve department, so it even matches!


So I am a happy and organized little camper with my brand new desk. Yay! Let the energy flow begin!

Looks excellent!

My current setup is a pretty normal computer desk, and a 6' table on one side to make an "L." I've got some plastic drawers under the table since my desk only has one drawer in it.

LOTS of desk space.

Well don't you deserve this! That's a long time in coming to find the right desk Jamie. I'm so glad you got the right one. It's so important to do that instead of making do with what's out there and wasting money. I think it's perfect for you and is very pretty!

Oh how awesome!!!! I'm currently using a hand-me-down desk that used to belong to my Grandma before she got a bigger one. It is perfectly perfect for what I use it for, and has been for quite some time. A little small... but so is the space it's in! LOL
