Chace’s modern farmhouse bedroom redo is still coming along nicely and now, this kid can do his grade two homework in style! We recently added a new desk to his lair – a custom design from Ikea (yes, custom…. from Ikea) Isn’t that an oxymoron? Not today folks.
When I started, the corner of his bedroom where the desk would go looked like this:
But now, it looks like this!
And don’t worry, I fixed that nonsense going on in the closet but that’s for another post.
To create the desk, I turned to Ikea and came up with a custom solution. YES – a custom solution from Ikea! To design this desk I used three components – the HILVER table top (which is bamboo), the ALEX drawer unit in grey and the LERBERG leg in grey as well.
I also chose the RASKOG stool because it was extremely cost effective ($29 – yes!) and the teal colour tied into the dresser and bedding.
I love the bamboo work surface and think the bevelled edge helps make the desk look higher end than it is. I’m impressed with the simplicity yet elegance of it.
The lamp is the RANARP lamp (also from Ikea) and is actually the same as the two we use in the office but in a different shade. I was going to get the black and gold one here but Chace was with me when shopping and really wanted this finish instead. #kidsgotanopinion
