Remember this old desk I found at the charity shop for 180 SEK (USD 25)? I desperately needed some sort of desk to blog at right after we moved in back in May so this was a lucky find.
For a long time this was the situation. It was sitting there along the 1954 wallpaper and looking kind of sad and for a long time I wasn’t sure if it was really “me”. That brown wood and the petrol blue feet and back.
I considered getting rid of it but decided to give painting the legs and back a go to see whether it grew on me.
It did. So much lighter and fresher. But I still wasn’t sure. After getting the sofa and having to rearrange the furniture to accommodate it I thought maybe of getting a simpler white desk that could be free standing in the room instead of having to use valuable wall space for this piece.
In the end I shuffled stuff around. I moved the Expedit further to the right and moved the TV over to this side of the room.
And it feels right! I’m still not 100% sure about the brown wood but with the TV stand next to it I like how the white in both work together and I’m more and more used to the brown every day. You know what, this is starting to look like a proper room now!
