Note to Craigslist Sellers:

Calling something "Vintage" or "Chic" doesn't make it magically become cute, no no, it's still a PIECE OF CRAP, so stop tricking me into clicking your ad.

Some Examples:
Seller's Description: Cute Shabby Chic Desk/Vanity $55
Seller's Description: Shabby Chic Wood Desk -$120

My Idea of Cute/Vintage/Chic:

Can you say dream Desk? So cute! Someone help me locate this...
Of course by the time I contacted the seller for this one it was gone.
SOOOOOO Cute. But when I went to see it it was a bit on the small side.

I would like to get a used desk so I don't have to spend a lot, but honestly, some of the desks I'm finding on Craigslist are super expensive! I'm looking for a desk that has leg room because I'm fidgety, preferably table style so I can move back and forth and get up without having to scoot my chair out each time. I would also like it to be white, but I am totally down to repaint a desk if I find one I like. Is this all too much to ask for???

Any Suggestions as to wear I can find a good desk?? Or better yet, the dream desk in the picture??

I've tried all of the following websites, but if you have more ideas LET ME KNOW!!
-Target
-Wal-Mart
-Kohl's
-Jc Penny
-Sear's
-Pier 1
-Cost Plus World Market

I've even gone "antiquing" and thrift store shopping with Josh, but we came out very empty handed.

Yes, try Ikea...although I'm a little partial since I was just there the other day haha:)

I love all of those, but definitely the second and third pics the best! Ikea is my fav for sure.... but it's practically the only thing that we have here ;)

Looks like everyone is voting for IKEA! I would personally check there as well :) I don't think you will find the "dream desk" there. Otherwise maybe just keep checking the antique and thift stores. You will find something! :)
