Do you spy anything new in our den?
Well, it’s not really new, just new to me. We are now the proud owners of my grandmother’s secretary desk!!
Isn’t it beautiful? I especially love the curvy drawer fronts.
This piece has lived in my parents’ house for a long time, and I nabbed it a few years back when my parents let us kiddos pick a few of our favorite pieces. I didn’t think that we had room for it so it’s been in my mom’s living room ever since, but after Christmas I realized that we actually have the perfect place for it!
( I don’t think I have any pictures of it, but we used to have an oversized armchair there, along with a side table. It kind of looked how it did in this post, except the sofa and armchair had switched places. Not sure if that makes sense. )
I still need to find the perfect chair to go with it (right now we’re just using a spare from our dining room). Any ideas?
In addition to all the sentimental value that goes along with this secretary, it’s also ridiculously useful. See?
I’m really digging all of the storage – I hadn’t realized it but we didn’t have a single drawer or cabinet to stash stuff in our entire living room. A travesty!
Look, lots of cubbies!! It’s perfect for stashing all of my stationary and thank you notes, magazines and books, my laptop, and the cozy blanket I crocheted for Jason back in law school (FYI, it’s the snuggliest blanket EVER).
As an added bonus, the top of the secretary is the perfect spot for a few of my favorite things.
Made any new additions to your home lately?
P.S. I’m linking this post up to Samantha’s Friday blog party.
