Okay, so in my continued effort to move away from working out of my dining room and into my currently "under renovation" office, I just purchashed my favorite piece of furniture that I came upon on a whim! The Parsons Desk.... a "versatile 1930s icon - crisp, clean, and modern." Ta da...
I know, I know... in all of her glory, she just isnt much to look at yet, but believe me she will be! For $25.00 I am pretty happy with my find... especially compared with the $199 and up prices that I see at West Elm and World Market. Even cooler, the front drawer slides out so that I can hide my laptop when it is not in use, and store paper on one side, and miscellaneous items on the other. I will be refinishing her in a nice white gloss coat of paint after I sand her finish off. I havent decided if I should change out the hardware to a tassle knob (or other modern piece) or should I just fill in the holes with wood filler and just have no knobs like all of the pictures below. Thoughts? Check out my inspiration on other parsons desks around the web:
Come back in a week to check on her progress... I'm gonna name her Parson! - NB
