Living in a small space has been a learning curve. I can move something an inch and be like…YES! why didn’t I do that before? Seriously. Small homes or small rooms for that matter have to be maximized, everything has to serve a purpose or it is out. I talked about this new Secretary Desk I found a couple weeks ago. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it in our small house. I had a small dresser by our front door before, I did like the dresser for storage but it was old and the drawers didn’t open too well- it was frustrating. So it got cut. I am not sure if this Secretary Desk will stay in this space (I have another idea for it). But for now I am LOVING the functionality of it. ** UPDATE- until 8-22 use code AUGUST to save an EXTRA 15% off to the already 30% off! HURRY!
The style stole my heart first then the functionality. You know I love brass and gold accents- the hardware is on point. I am
kind of a furniture snob. All my years working for a high-end design firm (started when I was 15 years old!) has made me spoiled. I got a really good discount on furniture and accessories. So everything I ever owned were real quality pieces. Case and point- my husband has never had to assemble furniture until this Secretary Desk. When he started to do it I almost said “never mind, I am taking it back.” Just because I was super worried about the quality and it holding up. But after a couple of long hours of assembly…I really love it. It doesn’t look cheap and the drawers glide out so nicely! I added a small little lamp inside that can plug in out the back. I like that I can still be working on a project or paperwork and just close it up when my kids get home from school. I also like the Secretary in the front room so I can work if Finn is playing with toys in here. Rather than at the kitchen table where I used to work. (I use THIS little stool up to it, these are tiny…but fit in this space well and are actually ok to sit on).
What do you think? Isn’t it a great new piece in our small house? I am considering it in our master bedroom or even when my big white sideboard is moved out… I could do it there. So stay tuned! Click on other Secretary Desks below that I found to shop! You can find my Secretary Desk HERE.
