More Things I Want

Matthew and I want a new desk. Because really, what better time for us to buy furniture than right before we have a baby and are inundated with hospital bills? Makes sense to me. I like a challenge.
Here's the desk we've been eyeballing.

It has a few chips on the front but regardless, nice eh? I'm into the mid-century modern look. I'm also just into saying the words "mid-century modern" because it sounds a little ridiculous. 
All that stuff on the top of the desk doesn't come with it. 

As an added plus, the drawers seem sturdy enough to hold a smallish baby. Provided said baby kept her weight below ten pounds. 

In other news, we put together our crib and changing table today. I'll post some pictures soon but don't get your hopes up. I won't be winning any design awards. We went back and forth this morning debating painting the floor of the nursery blue. That's right, you heard me. It's the new thing according to Design Sponge. Ultimately we decided that we didn't want to take on another project in our rental house. Also the idea of living with paint fumes for the next few weeks is not very appealing. So we slapped a green rug from Ikea on the horrible floor and called it good. I'm feeling like the rug makes the floor look like AstroTurf and it troubles me, but at this point I'm resigned to not having the nursery of my dreams. 

Dear friends, how much would you pay for this desk?

  1. Um it's really cute but I have exactly ZERO knowledge about furniture and how much it would cost. Have you checked out similar desks online to see how much they've sold for??
