The Desk That Goes Against Everything I Believe In.
Is there anything better in this world than a friend who understands you? Last week Miss All Things Thrifty and I had a project day. I showed up in my plaid pj’s from christmas 9 years ago and a DIYers signature no look messy bun. We solved the worlds problems, ate pizza, and planned planned planned. Then living in a smallish town, one thing lead to another and we found ourselves in a VERY uncomfortable situation.
Actually it was probably more uncomfortable for the other people shopping at Homegoods, considering our outfits.
You guys know how much I love this store, it’s the hunt. I love the hunt.
So back to the story. We were walking and I was looking at something when Brooke comes up and says. “They have the most Mandilicious desk!” I broke out into a full sprint, because when something is described as Mandilicious by your BFF you can bet your hoard that it DOES NOT get better than that.
I was INSTANTLY obsessed.
So I instagramed/FBed a pic and walked the store to kill time until the comments started coming in. Because I really do care what you guys have to say! (well usually, but we will get to that in a second.)
There was probably a 90/10 split for those against the desk. And I was SUPER surprised! (You guys are usually such enablers!) This desk was awesome. So I came to the conclusion that it was my picture, that you guys couldn’t tell how great it was.
And I bought it.
And I took it home. And guess what?
It has a perfect spot.
Remember this post I just shared with you about that awkward space in my super long living room? Well I filled it with a small white chest and map, and it seemed fine. Until THE DESK moved in. Then I could see just how wrong I was about that little chest.
So I wanted to share how much this sweet desk has completed that lonely corner.
I had hung the industrial light to photograph it for my giveaway post and I just love it, so now I am on the hunt for something to put there.
So could I have made this desk? Probably
Could I have thrifted for the next 6 months to find something with the same vibe? Probably.
Would I have died without it? Probably. Oh wait. Probably not.
But I love it.
And sometimes you have to break your own rules.
Love Your Guts, Mandi
