If there were an award for giving your readers a panic attack...

Wow. I seemed to have freaked my poor little readers out! You have all inspired me to get off my rump and rectify this situation ASAP! As in... this weekend! I think I HAVE to before 8-10 women from all over the country show up on my doorstep with Dymo label makers and boxes!
So, I've been thinking I would really like a new desk with some type of storage to put in my closet. I'd like it to look nice so I can keep my closet doors open without feeling ashamed! I hopped on Craigslist tonight to see what the people in my area have to offer. I found two desks I may be interested in. Take a look-see!

This one looks like it would be super functional for me. I like the filing cabinet to put my fabrics in. I'd like to seperate them into boy fabrics and girl fabrics... so two is fine. It's $25

This one is a little more my style though and it's nice that I could use it elsewhere when I move and have more room. I would paint it black though! The bottom of one of the drawers is falling out and would need to be repaired(which is easy)... but still more work. I'm also not sure about the size of the drawers. May be a little on the small side, right? This is part of a set(comes with head and footboard to match-which I don't need) for $75. I don't know if they'd sell it seperately for me or not?

I may end up going with the first one b/c it seems like less work and better organization.

As far as storage for my shoes goes... I actually do have 2 hanging shoe bags pushed off to one side that you can't see in the pictures. I like shoes... I'm pretty sure you guys have noticed if you come here often!

Soooo... come back on Monday and see what progress I've made! I promise SOMETHING will be done!

((Update: Apparently neither of the people selling these things on craigslist wanted to get rid of them... they didn't email me back. OHHHH Well. I'm improvising!))

13 love notes:

  1. Whew! I was about to book a flight!

  2. Thanks for the comment! Sometimes it is all about libido..Haha, I have no real feelings for him at this moment, so I don't really care. I just want to have fun! By the way, your blog looks really cute and I can't wait to read more.

  3. Have fun Lacey! Cant wait to see what you come up with!

  4. I just wanted to stop by and tell you that I love your blog and look forward to your new post!
    I have a little something for you on my blog today. Come take a look.

  5. I like the second one... much more girly. :)

  6. Oooh! I really like that second one. Buy the set for $75, then sell the bed in a yard sale or something, just to get the desk.

  7. I like the second one better. . .much more character!

    Be Blessed,

    Amy (Honestly)

  8. I'm saying first one. More functional. And I've seen what you can do to pretty up a boring piece of junk, so by the time you're done, it'll look 10 times better than the second desk. Also...yours is the only blog with music that I don't immediately mute when clicking on. This week, you're featuring my "theme song" by Augustana! Happy organizing

  9. I really like the second one!!


    Loving this song!!!!! Of course...I always love your music =)

  10. I just found your blog and I love it! Both of those desks are pretty and I'm excited to see how you decide to organize everything!

  11. OK...I was in the process of checking airfare! I can not wait to see the results and will say that you would be amazed what some spray paint and new hardware will do to a "cheap" old piece of furniture.
    Have fun with it!


You've always been my favorite... don't tell the others!
