Reminder, I started with this mess only 4 short days ago (okay, I admit, the REAL mess is outside of the smart phone camera's view).
I thought I really wanted this desk found on Craigslist. The sellers never replied and when I shared the picture with a friend she pointed out all those tiny drawers looked like storage, but unless I was collecting paper clips, they were worthless. Okay, point taken.
So, I ended up with this, but knew I needed more space as the card-table type table was NOT large enough. Add that I really liked the idea of closing up my desk area from view like you can do with a roll top, especially when I'm working on school work that takes more than one sitting.
I decided that one of three things was going to happen before I returned to work Monday:
- I would haul the old "distressed" and ugly desk I was using at my mom's here;
- I would find something and purchase on Craigslist;
- I would purchase a BRAND new desk!

Here it is open and ready for use. I completed Progress Reports for my students this morning and am sitting in that chair right there, with my dog, Abby, at my feet, typing this blog entry.
It's a pretty little thing DOES match our furniture, and will work well if my "craft room/office" ends up being the "craft room/office/guest bedroom"!
