Desk Update {and a giveaway}

Update: Brittany is the big winner! Thanks, everyone!

Remember like months ago when I was shopping for desks and chairs? Yeah, I pretty much forgot too! :)

I finally convinced Bill to desk shop with me and we even got my IKEA boxes put together into a real desk! However, the chair has been another story. Let’s just say there was a mix up on the color (I want yellow, not green please!) so I’m still waiting for my chair to arrive. Urban Outfitters has been really helpful though and gave me some great credits since they couldn’t rush my chair to me. Who knew that Urban Outfitters furniture is made to order??

Anyone, here’s a preview of where my desk is today:

Updates to come: 

  • Change the hardware – the hardware that came with this desk really blend in so I want to add something more decorative
  • Set up my laptop, etc
  • Paint my side table – I’m thinking about painting it yellow and adding a decorative stencil on the flat top
  • Hang art – I’m planning to flank either side of the top of my desk with those tall frames you see on the left. I’m still in search of the perfect fabric to frame
Speaking of hanging art… Check out this great piece of art I had made:
As I was working on picking out art for the wall around my desk, I was contacted by a great company called Easy Canvas Prints. Just as the name describes, it’s a super easy way to turn your photo prints into canvas art. Here’s the easy process I went through to get this great piece:
  1. Chose my size – I chose an 8″x10″
  2. Uploaded my image directly from my desktop
  3. Selected my border option – I chose to go with the basic (my sides are white)
  4. Added any image effects – I didn’t add any since this photo was previously edited by my wedding photographer
That was it! Once I finish my DIY art, I’ll be hanging this great memory right above my desk for all to see!
Want to win one of these beautiful pieces? Now’s your chance! I’ll be giving away one canvas print to a lucky winner.

    I’m going to Aruba next month for a week with my boyfriend. I hope to have the perfect picture from that trip to use for a canvas print!

    I would turn one of our wedding pictures into a canvas. We bought the wedding cd but never any prints. Kinda funny!

    I would probably choose a photo I took of my two boys the day after my second son was born.
