My 8 year old daughter informed me at the beginning of the school year that she would need a desk for her room to do her homework at.
Ok, sweetie. ;)
The problem was her room is small (we have a 1.5 story so the ceilings are slanted making very little wall space to put furniture on). I've been searching for a smaller desk that would fit in the space next to her bed. A friend (who I am eternally indebted to for her business and furniture prowess) told me of a small desk on CL and she happened to be going through the town it was located in. Score!
It's a little pine desk, but it's perfect for the space we have. When Ania saw this dresser I just did she told me she would like her desk to be like that. It's actually the perfect color for her room. My friend dropped it off today around 10:30 and in the midst of doing two other projects I decided I would surprise Ania with it after school. So, I busted my bum and got it done (along with both other projects!) .
She was so excited! :) She even asked me to make up a homework sheet for her so she could sit at her new desk! lol
You can't tell but it had a truly horrible shellac job!
I thought it turned out really cute and she loves it!
She asked me to leave the "to do list" on the top for her so she could accomplish them. ;)
Of course, she wanted the same knobs because who wouldn't??!!
I did the top of the stool in chalkboard paint too because I thought it would be fun and she says, "But, I don't walk chalk on my bum!" Good point. I told her to just not write on it if she's going to sit on it. ;)
Now maybe we won't hear any complaining about doing homework....for a few days anyway! :)
