Time to share my new desk with the world. I’ve had it for a few months, but haven’t gotten around to share so now is the time for the unveiling.
I came across this guy Jeremiah who makes custom mid-century modernesque furniture in San Francisco and really fell in love with a desk that he had on Etsy that had cable storage in the back. Slick. I have had a basic glasstop on trundles style desk for the past 10 years and decided it was time for an upgrade so I started the process of figuring out what I wanted.
There were a few problems with the glass desk. One being that it drove me crazy that I could see every fingerprint and catprints on the desktop. I was constantly cleaning it to no avail. The second thing I hated was the fact that I had no storage or drawers to hide my crap.
In thinking of what I wanted for my next desk I also decided it would be great if I could have a multi-purpose space where I could use the desk as a vanity to do my makeup instead of in my dim bathroom. Great.
I went to Jeremiah with the request to have the desk design like on Etsy, but could he somehow make it into a vanity for me. We brainstormed a few possibilities and came up with a design that would have one of the drawers converted into a fold-down mirror. And also decided to add on orange fronts to the drawers for some flair.
After a few months of waiting, the desk was delivered and I am more than thrilled with it. The mirror / vanity turned out to be amazing and also have enough room to put all of my makeup in the drawer.
The only things I would change on the desk would be to somehow incorporate lighting and also I would’ve made it slightly taller. I ended up buying clear plastic raisers from Amazon that worked find to add some height.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
