This post is for my husband. He doesn’t read my blog as a habit but this is one post I’m going to make sure he doesn’t miss because… well, I’ve had enough!
This man needs a new computer desk. Correction. He needs a real computer desk – because what he’s using now is a regular desk not meant for a computer! Believe it or not there is no keyboard tray and no place for the actual computer to go (it sits on top of the desk in a corner) but he still uses it. A lot. He does college online and has to be on it often.
The Evidence: John’s “Computer Desk”
It can’t be comfortable, but he never complains! That’s because he’s so easygoing – not a complainer. Nice, right? I think this man deserves a newer, nicer place to put his computer.
Oh, did you notice the chair? That seat kept falling off and he finally taped it to the frame. He needs a computer chair, too… but one thing at a time!
So I’ve been looking at new computer desks. My go-to places would be checking on Craigslist (but I hate HATE shopping there), looking at a furniture store (but usually too spendy), or searching online for a nice desk. What I’ve come up with is still a little more than I want to spend but WOW. I would love to have something like this Saratoga desk from the Bush collection:
The thing I really like about this desk is that it goes into a corner. That would be such a space-saver for us! And the optional add-ons for storage are awesome, too. I don’t even want to show you the insides of John’s desk drawers. It’s too horrible to behold. Cupboard storage like the above or lateral files would be a huge help when it comes to getting him organized, that’s for sure!
So now I just have to get John motivated to go desk shopping!
And in case you were wondering, I do have a computer desk. It’s a cheapie from Walmart but it works. It’s meant for a computer anyway.
If John wants to take mine and get me a new one, though…
I would not be opposed. ;-)
Where did you get your computer desk?
