Savings and SAS Day

Remember days ago when I said, “I’m back!” Well…now I’m back. What can I say? Life gets in the way. Sounds like a song…eh? Alright, I’ll stop.

I have more to tell you about it next week, but essentially my craft room is a chaotic mess right now. I’m going in a new direction. I’m selling furniture. I’m buying furniture. Busy times, little craft room!

I wanted a desk designated just for sewing. I can’t possibly be the exception here, but I feel like I always have something to sew. A hem here, a pair of pants there… So I was on the hunt for a small desk. And then I found it. 

Jonathan Adler knew exactly what I was looking for and made this desk just. for. me. The sleek shape, the sexy lines, the shiny legs--drool-worthy, I tell ya.

And then he put a $1750.00 price tag on it. Say WHA? I said $1,750.00!! I couldn’t even afford the tax on it. Sigh. Good bye, desk.

Never fear, however. I spotted Josephine, and it was love at first site! She was only $200, and I had a 25% off coupon. Take that, Jonathan!

Before you look at these pictures, let me ask that you refrain from sending hate mail. It is NOT accessorized or functional yet. I simply wanted to show you her beauty.

She fits into the space perfectly, and I’ve already used the sewing machine since putting it in its new home. Who cares if I had to sew while on my knees? I’m on the look out for one luscious “sewing” chair, and it should be all set.

So that’s what I’ve been up to. It took me a whole week to put a desk up against a wall. I’m going to guess your week was more creatively productive. That’s your cue! Link on up for me!

Love it! I think I actually like it better than the JA desk. I'm actually thinking I need this desk in my house!

Thanks for hosting!

Anna @ Take the Side Street said...

I think it's beautiful! I've always loved desks like that. Also, I've aaaaalways loved great deals ;) So I'm a fan on both counts. I don't even have my sewing machine set up all the time, it lives in a closet, so I'm definitely in the minor leagues compared to you :)Thanks for hosting!

So sorry for your loss. But glad that you are back and crafting again

Stephanie said...

Glad to have you back Chris. Love the find, you could even add the decorative drawer pulls and probably spray the legs chrome if you really wanted. But I love it as it is. Hate mail over a desk? I hope not.

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

In love with your desk, great price tag too :)

LOVE the new desk! It looks so pretty with the pink ribbons too! If you wanted, you could always add a glass knob to the center drawer...but it really looks great.
