Not much time for a full-on Philosophizin' Friday post, but here's another glimpse into our den. We had a old record player console that Charlie rebuilt into a stereo unit, but it was just too cramped. I looked around for a side table I'd like in there instead, and found an options at West Elm and CB2 that I liked. I kind of feared, though, that the styles that I liked would make the room too "leggy" with the star base on the lounge, ottoman and 3-legged base on the coffee table.
Plus I couldn't get too excited about buying new stuff, new stuff since I'm on a spending hiatus. To be honest, though, I'm also a little worried that going over board with thrift store finds might make our home feel a little too dorm room chic. Whatever. I found a $20 desk on Craigslist (chair included. . . sweet!) and went for it.
That's a good story. The one I heard was not, and was also not one that will not be passed along when/if we get rid of the desk. Without further ado, the desk with tmi. What do you think? Perfectly Trash Americana or on the verge of poor college student decor?
I've got a post up on Modish today and later this weekend I'll be venturing west to Warren Wilson College for a workshop with Dave Jacke hosted by a few of my friends from Permie Camp. Hope you have a great weekend!
