Friday Find

Here's a little "thinking outside the box" idea for you guys on this Friday!

I was looking for an inexpensive LONG console to fit behind a sofa for a client. Similar to this idea:

So I decided to use this piece from IKEA:


It's actually a DESK not a console! But it was perfect for the space. It went between a wall and the sofa, so you can't tell it's a desk at all. I LOVE the high gloss lacquer on it (note - it's actually a high gloss paint finish, not the fake "high gloss" laminate that they have started putting on their LACK pieces.. which is why it's more "expensive" for an IKEA piece).

I decided to go for this desk because of the openness of the legs and the better quality finish/construction.

BUT, good to know, IKEA actually does sell a really long MALM console table which is also great:

    love that little lucite table!

  2. Another Ikea score to the rescue! I just added a festive pop of color to my Ikea Hemnes entertainment center and I love that the piece is real wood so it allows me to "hack" it without damaging it.

  3. OMG, you look too good in those white pants NOT to wear them.


THANK YOU for taking the time to share your thoughts. I appreciate each and every comment.
