A Desk with a Cubby Shelf

 

Remember last November, when we had our Barn Sale? Well, I got this fabulous cubby shelf from the sweet ladies at Junkin on Main…painted it white and it’s one of my favorite pieces :) And remember in this post, when I said a Pinterest photo prompted me to rearrange furniture? Well…this is what I put together, after I moved the long buffet table out of our dining room:

Desk 2

I wanted to share the inspiration photo with you, which gave me the idea to use the cubby shelf, as an addition to a desk. I first saw this photo below HERE on Pinterest…and pinned it to my Clean & Organize Board. Isn’t the table amazing? I love all the textures added by the books and rolled papers.

Desk inspiration

Yes, my table is not near as curvy and detailed, but it works. I enjoy this little space…it’s in our dining room. It’s a great spot to sit and write blog posts, send emails, etc…plus, I’m not far from the kids at the farm table while they’re doing home school.

Desk 8

I made a quick, no-sew chair slipcover…using a grainsack, I placed half of it over the chair and gathered the extra with twine. Add some fresh lavender from the garden…and done!

Desk 3

The red bud trees are just about finished blooming…the leaves are now green and the pretty pink blooms won’t show up again until next spring. I took these photos last week, when I brought a few branches inside to enjoy.

Your new desk area is fabulous. One can never go wrong with cubbies but pair with a desk...they are the perfect combo. Of course you wonderful styling makes it even better.

Becky! I love your "copycat" change - it looks AWESOME - even better than the original in my humble opinion. Well done, I love when we find inspiration and nail it perfectly. YAY!

Becky I absolutely adore your new desk/cubby space! It looks amazing and you've styled it perfectly. I love the soft touch of the fabric on the chair as well. Funny, that Pinterest photo is one of my all-time favorite photos (I think it's from Jeanne D'Arc?).
I just posted about your fabulous gifts on my blog. Thank you again - I love them!
