Ikea Solves Everything!

As you all know I've been on the hunt for a desk. And because I am a tad OCD I couldn't rest until I found a desk I liked (and I was pretty sure I knew which one I wanted from IKEA) but in order to stop obsessing about it I knew I needed to go to IKEA to touch/see it in person.

So on Saturday, Josh and I went to IKEA to fulfill my need to see the desk in person, and I am SO GLAD I did!

I've decided to get this desk top!
Now I just have to decide which legs! What do you think?
These wrought iron style ones are $20 each....
And these A-Frame ones are $40....

Here are some pictures from inside the store, please excuse the crappy quality!
They didn't have an example of the A-Frame ones on the desk top I like, but here they are on this one...
I also found this super cute desk chair! I want to recover the pad in a cute fabric :)
So ladies and gents, which desk legs??

Great desk, I love that one.
I personally like the A-frame ones..besides being cute they allow extra storage space, and that's always a plus to me.

Ohh I can't decide either. I really like that char though. I guess maybe the wrought iron ones if I HAD to chose? Good luck!

I would have to pick the A frames but that's because it goes with my home better. I've seen your pink girly pottery barn room and I think the wrought iron ones would go better with your "style"! :) They are both really nice though!!

The wire frames are a more simple and clean look, but I really like the storage the A frames provide. You could dress them up with cute baskets. :)

I would pick the ones you can use the legs for extra shelving, it is the most functional for the cost.

Good luck and god speed in your designing expedition! Love ya~

Josh said...

I would pick the A frame ones so I can put all my extra stuff under your desk :)

Cute!! I'd say go with the wrought iron... Cheaper and super cute! I think theygo better with that chair. It will look great with a colorful cushion!

Ikea is my BF! I just went there last night!

I really like both of them. But I like more antique look, and I think the wrought iron is great!

But I'm with the others that say the Aline would be great for extra storage. Good luck choosing!

I think the wrought iron would go better with your bed but I like the A frame ones better for storage. They are both really cute. Get the wrought iron ones.
