Re-painted kitchen desk

I have a nook in my kitchen that is meant for a kitchen desk. THE perfect mommy center. To have had the builder do the desk (for an upgrade) was almost $400! No thank you.  So I went way outside my comfort zone and explored the world of Craig’s List to find a desk—despite my nightmare of being hacked to pieces by another Craig’s List serial killer. Seriously. I had a very graphic nightmare about it the night I started searching online for a desk. But, I was brave, and blessed, because I found a fantastic deal that was exactly what I was looking for, and the seller was a very sweet, polite young man who my mom (my buddy system companion) and I were very relieved to do business with.  The desk was in almost perfect condition, except it was dark walnut stain, and I wanted white.


I painted it! $20 bucks and two days of labor later, I had this:


I still have some organizational stuff I need to put on the wall above it to truly turn it into a mommy office/station, but I already love it. At this very moment I am sitting right where you see and typing this post. It really is perfect :)

I am envisioning something like this above it eventually (plus and minus a few things)…

I found you through the OBB link up on facebook. I love your office nook in your kitchen! We have our desk off the kitchen, but I long for a more built-in feel to it. Great job with the desk re-do, and great blog!

There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "
