Office "Re-do"

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was thinking of doing a complete re-design of my home office. So this week my goal is to get the office all sorted through (purge, purge purge!) so in the next few weeks I can start ordering new office furniture.

I have decided to bite the bullet and buy the Pottery Barn desk that I love. This is huge for me because I have never bought anything from PB (even though I love their stuff) just for the principle that I think they are overpriced. But I love the desk, and it is supposed to be very durable, so I think I am going to do it.
Last year when we moved in, Matt put french doors into my office. The other wall has a door entry (we still can't figure out why the builder did this) so Matt is going to close off the door with drywall, we are going to paint the whole office and then along one wall I am going to buy this from Ikea. It matches the bookshelves I bought last year so it should look real nice.
I'll take pictures along the way. I am sure the room will look totally different once we are done. My goal date to be finished by Thanksgiving. Keep your fingers crossed that it will happen.

Oh so fun! I love to decorate and organize (i know, freaky). We actually have quite a few things from Pottery Barn and they are well worth it. They are very sturdy and durable. I think you'll like it a lot. It is an adorable desk! Happy projecting! :)

Doesn't NC have an outlet store?

I have always wanted to go to an IKEA store. We're supposed to get one in NC soon!

Go get the desk. It's worth it.

(This way, when you procrastinate on your home office work, you won't be able to use the table as your excuse :)

Exciting. I can't wait to see it maybe I will have to road trip for the full effect?

I, like you, love PB but never buy from them because of price. HOWEVER, this desk would make me change my mind! It's a must buy!
