Pin 224, Bedroom Redo Part 1, New Desk and Chair

As you can read, I am redoing our Master bedroom. But of course, I forgot to take before pictures which would have been smart. You’ll have to forgive me and rely on my detailed descriptions. Here’s what I’m changing out:

  1. painting the room from brown to gray/blue
  2. adding a desk and chair for my computer
  3. adding new sheer curtains and new curtain rods
  4. revamping our mid-century dresser by painting the top and sides
  5. building a fabric headboard
  6. adding an accent rug and some new art

So far, I have the desk and chair that was inspired by this Pin:

I found my desk and chair at Ikea of course. My favorite place to shop for furniture. The Micke desk was only $49 and very easy to put together.



I did assemble the top backwards but I promise it was an easy fix. It has a hole at the back where all your cords go and they hide very nicely underneath the desk.

The Tobias chair was $79.99 and came close to not happening. Ikea Paramus only had two left and I snagged the last one. Talk about a heart pounding experience. I realize the chair does not look like the one in the inspiration picture but I’ve always wanted a clear acrylic chair. No other would do. So for $130 (less tax) plus a $6 table lamp (also Ikea), here is my new desk:

  1. I found your website by searching for pics of this desk “in the wild”. Looks great, especially with the chair. What paint color did you use? I really like it. Thanks.
