My husband is pretty easy-going when it comes to certain things. I’m so very glad.
For example, after I got the basement cleaned up a few months ago, he brought home a desk. His unit was getting new office furniture and they let him take his old desk. We were both pretty excited about having a place to sit and work and not have to move stuff from kitchen table to bed to couch.
To make a longish story shorter, the desk has become mine. Maybe because I was the one who sat at it the most. Maybe because I put a bunch of pretty stuff on it. Let me show you:
On this side we have a lovely tea cup and saucer, a fun tin that holds my chocolate chips, and my pretty blogging, budgeting, and editing folders.
And on this side is my fun apple post-it note dispenser, my mug rug from Seams Inspired, and a larger-than-average calculator.
It has become one of my favorite spots.
My husband is ok with that. He actually created another spot for himself on the other side of the basement, using some large tables we had over there. I think he likes that space better than where the “real” desk sits.
We’ve had a couple of good laughs over how he brought the desk home “for me.”
