The big day finally arrived and the desk was delivered at 2p.m. It is so beautiful!!
Isn’t t perfect. It is not too big and it is a roll top and a nice looking piece of furniture as well and all I wanted in a desk. Now we have a place where we can put all our bills to pay or that we have paid for the month. All of these will go in the first draw and others that are finished but we need to keep for tax records will go in the bottom draw. My letter writing and records that I need to keep will be in the second draw and the inside of the desk will be our banking etc so now we don’t have to go hunting in my draws or Norman’s little desk or his bond box. We will know right where everything is. At our ages we spend most of our time looking for something we put away in a safe place but forget where that place is. All my projects we be in my craft room/guest room and Norman’s will be in his work shop/garage. Now we can enjoy each day and not spend half of it looking for what we need to do that day. The roll top has a key also so we can lock it up if we so desire.
This shows you the three draws. All are real draws not just fake fronts like so many I have seen and I have my pidgin holes that I so wanted.
Isn’t it just perfect? And so heavy too. It is a wonderful piece of furniture. The only scratch on the thing, that I could find is a small line on the pull out writing table. I think you can see it on the left hand side. I know it is there so of course I see it but it isn’t really very noticeable.
Just another picture of it open. The next thing we had to do was get a chair to fit the desk so we could sit at it to work and I found the accent chair fit it just right and was very comfortable to use. I could write all day with that chair.
This shows you the writing pull out table. It is a good size and very easy to use.
I look like the cat that swallowed the canary, don’t I. I feel like that too. I had no hope of getting this area furnished the way I wanted to but I did it and within my budget too. I am truly pleased and happy. I also am happy I lost almost ten pounds so my not eating in-between meals and cutting down on sweets is really paying off so everything is working out great for me. Have a good day.
