Desk Options. Update!

I love Craigslist. I found these two gems today. What do we think? Should I purchase?

"Desk" aka "Table"



Filing Cabinet- um how cute would this be with new crystal knobs?



I want a light, airy feel in the office. I think this could be perfect! All I would need is a fun vintage chair and a great bullien board covered wtih cute fabric.


Let the opinons begin!


Come Back and See Me!

LOVE IT!!!! I use a table as a desk too... you can never have too much room. I'm doing an office overhaul this week, wish you could come help! You've got great taste!

I'm new to your blog and am enjoying it. Found a comment from you on Rhoda's blog, that you're from Waynesville, NC. I'm not, but my hubby's aunt and uncle live there, and we just took a big driving them to see them a couple of weeks ago. Gorgeous country!

Kara, I hope you get both of these! I can totally see these in an office space. I bought my hubby an oval dining table for his desk & he loves it.

I can just see the vision you have for your office space! Very nice! Those are great finds and I would love to know where you purchase your knobs from. I am in need of several and have been looking ... looking ... smile!

Oh my goodness! I think that would make a fantastic desk! And the filing cabinet would look great with some new knobs.

Buy it!!

Did you buy the Duncan Phyffe dining table/desk? I saw one once where it was cut in half and each half was used as a side table (they placed the "cut" part up against a wall and I think anchored into the wall so it wouldn't be wobbly)...does that make sense? Anyway, it looked good and I've been wanting to do that myself if I could find a table to cut at a good price.

The first time I saw this done was on Homes Across America by a designer in California (can't think of her name right now). I think I've also seen it in a magazine but I was so impressed by the cut in half thing I've remembered it so I can do that one day if I ever fine one to cut in half AND find a place to use it!

Let me know what you do....
