Hey guys! Today, I’m going to give you a tour of my writing desk! 💜 I am so excited that I finally got to write about this because I’d been wanting to for a while. I took some great pictures to go along with it, so I hope you enjoy! 😊💕
I’ve had it since the summer of 2015. My mom got it for me from a secondhand store, and I absolutely love how unique it is. Plus, the reflective black top is really cool!
The funny thing is, it’s the first desk I have ever had. At the last house we lived in, I didn’t have enough space in my room for one. Now that I have space in our new(ish) home, I have loved it that much more!
Without further ado, allow me to introduce it to you! Here’s the overview:
It seriously makes me soooo happy!
The little white lights that my mom got me add such a nice, soft glow to my whole room. Without them, I wouldn’t like my living space half as much. They’re so pretty!!
If you’d like to learn a little bit more about each thing on and around my desk, keep on reading. 😊
This is where I keep all of my writing utensils, as well as different card games! I got it from Hobby Lobby for $15 last summer, and that was sale price. I think it’s so cool! I love the geometric designs.
This is my little CD player! I got it for $3 from a secondhand store, and even though it can be finicky (there isn’t an on/off button, so I have to plug and unplug it haha), and it will quit playing altogether sometimes if I accidentally hit it with my finger, I still love it.
The chickadee figure ($7) is from a souvenir shop in Tallulah Falls, GA, and the BB-8 plush ($8) was from (out of all the places that sell Star Wars merchandise) Publix. Haha!
The glass candle holder on the left ($2) was from Hobby Lobby, as was the piggy bank, which I’ve had for so long that I can’t remember how much it cost. The gray and white cup was something my mom won in a giveaway, which she gave to me, as she didn’t have a use for it.
Now, on to my favorite part of my room – this blanket! 💜 My mom found it at a secondhand store we went to recently, and my heart just about melted when she showed me. It reminds me so much of the colors in handwoven blankets at markets in Guatemala, and I knew I just had to have it for my room. It was only $3, but I would’ve happily paid more for it! 😍
Now I’d like to introduce to you my button collection! I’ve been collecting buttons since 2010, and I’ve gotten quite a lot. I recently went through them and arranged my favorites on this board. It’s a blank canvas that I covered with fabric from Hobby Lobby! It cost less than $5 to make and I love how it turned out.
I got the ‘Grateful’ wooden sign from a craft fair for $5. It’s so cute!
This was from – you guessed it! – Hobby Lobby. If you couldn’t already tell, I buy most of the stuff for my room from there! I got this cacti print for half price at $15 and I love it so much!
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you liked this tour – I’ll definitely do another one in the future when I redecorate it! 💚
