A New Desk

I went by Restoration Hardware the other day when I went for my Apple training. I had a few minutes to kill so I walked around and drooled over some of the stuff in this store.
I'm looking for a desk for my creative space. I don't want to spend a small fortune, but I do want a good desk.
I think a good desk is important -- it sets the tone for the work that you plan to do. If it's too cluttered, it can be distracting, but it needs to be inviting.
I saw two desk at Restoration that I loved. Both cost more than my truck. This wooden desk is just the right size for my computer with space for a few books and other things I'd need.
I also saw a desk made out of an airplane wing that looked really cool too.
You guys are going to have to click on a bunch of my Google ads for me to afford either of these so -- chop chop, click click :)
Actually, the wooden desk looks like something I could build myself out of some of the old wood I removed from the barn.
Maybe I'll give that a shot in my spare time.
I have several interviews set up this week so I won't get as much work done on my construction projects.
My knees are already thanking me for the rest.
Y'all have a great week.

  4. The plane wing desk is pretty cool looking, from an artistic point of view, but kind of cold and clinical for writing. Def. wood would be a better choice, especially if you can build one yourself! (Envious. I can barely pound a nail straight)

  5. Oh go on build yourself a desk!!! You know you want to! :-)

    I do like the idea of the desk made out of a bit of a plane but I much prefer the good ol fashioned solidity of the wooden desk!

    Take care

  6. In your spare time? That made me laugh! Nice pics of the desks. I found the coolest desk (it was a table but had the components of a desk at Pier One years ago for my day spa I owned). Just as an FYI, we aren't going to FL. We found a cottage 4 miles up the road from where we are now for 1/2 of what we spend now. I know you've been busy so must have missed that post. We're so happy to stay in SC

  9. Find an old solid wood door and go from there. Good luck. And I agree that working on a wooden desk is much better for inspiration than any other material.

  10. I say make your own! My dad just made a tilting dining room table. That was he can eat dinner or use it for drafts.

  11. That aeroplane desk and chair are amazing! Coveting madly. You should try ebay - I got my lovely antique desk there at a totally knockdown price.

  12. Thanks for all the feedback. I think I will build my table. I wandered around Home Depot today looking for braces and fasteners.
    We'll see how it goes. If it's not a disaster, I'll post pictures :)

  14. As I was reading this post, I kept thinking "why doesn't he just build one of his own, he's pretty talented and handy"..then I laughed when I came to the part about building it yourself! Maybe it will be so cool, Restoration Hardware will come knocking on your creative space door and order a few dozen!

  15. I really like Restoration Hardware. Miss having one around. Just having one to help figure out what you want is nice.
    As for desk choices---I go antique...but the chair is the real important piece of furniture. Comfort!

  16. Wow, that airplane wing desk looks amazing! I can see Ornery sitting there tapping away at his computer--or dreaming of flying, one or the other. :)
