We had a renovation about a year ago which included a new office for me. I love having my own creative space. However, the more I used my office I realized the layout was not working for me. I had tried moving my desk every which way in the office only to come to the conclusion it was just to too big for the space. The size of the desk also prevented me from adding much needed storage. Ultimately, I knew I would have to replace my desk in order to properly use my office.
With the decision made, I went in search of a new desk and storage solutions. Since I was making changes, I also decided to repaint my office, making it a total refresh!
After several weeks of looking, I was finally able to find what I was looking for on Facebook Marketplace…a French writing desk and two bookshelves for storage.
Part One: Office Refresh!
This is the desk I found on Facebook Marketplace. The size and the price were just right!
I am not sure what I want to do with it yet, so I cleaned it up and took off the hardware.
I also prepped it using Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint so it would be ready when I decide which direction I want to go.
I found two shelving units that are a little different in style, but the same height. I plan on making them look like one cohesive piece.
It is already more spacious after removing my original desk and bringing in the smaller one! I can’t wait to see the finished product!
