If you saw yesterdays post, then you saw my makeover on this desk
I was trying to decide between an older desk and this desk, and I came to the conclusion that I could just have 2 desks.
I really like this table, but when bought together its $189. Also I really wanted a white top, this silver felt too cold to me.
And for some reason, you cant buy this with a white top. And that's really what I wanted. Maybe you can? But I've searched for pictures online, searched ikeas website and the actual store. I don't think the combo exists. The width of the table and the width of the legs don't make them compatible
So I bought them anyway. Am I like a rebel when it comes to design?
Since the leg width is too wide to put under the table on a straight line, I decided to improvise by putting them on an angle
I think it looks pretty cool, and it was the only way to get the white table with the silver legs. Obviously I'm not done decorating this area, I haven't even started. My daughter must have been there when I was taking these picture because this is her beloved monkey.
My favorite part about the table is that the table top is a really nice size space to work, and I like that even though it was bought from ikea, this is not how its sold so its more unique. That being said I still like it better the other way, but since they don't offer a white top that fits, I'm pretty happy with the outcome.
I also think these 2 make a really nice pairing. I think they are special together being in the same room. I really like the mix of vintage & modern, and the unexpected paired together.
So that's it. 2 desks 1 room. I am so excited. And I cant wait to share the rest with you all. So far this room lacks personality, but that will change with tomorrows post .
