Sorry about that AWFUL play on words in the post title, I can't help myself!
The study in our house is very much my husband's domain, full of files, papers, gadgets and other officey-crap. But I haven't been able to resist putting my stamp on it decor-wise and trying to make it a nice space for him. I have been really lucky with the pieces I've found for this room such as the bookcase and filing cabinet I have previously posted about. But up until recently there was a blank wall crying out for some storage. I was frantically looking for something fab in the fear my husband might beat me to it and bring home a beech-effect-flat-pack-storage-solution...
I finally found the perfect piece of furniture last month, ta-daa!
This retro credenza/buffet/sideboard was a steal at $40 in Vinnie's. These are very much in vogue at the moment and go for a lot on eBay so this was a major find! It fits the space perfectly and is the perfect solution to hide away all those ugly computer files, text books and disks etc. This photo only shows two thirds of it as the desk juts out in front of it, will need to move that over a bit (I'm actually on the hunt for a really nice desk too, the one we have is yuk).
Another surface to put "stuff" on, yay!
I picked up this vintage heat lamp for $5 at a market recently.
And this lamp at the same market for $5.
I'm extra-happy with this purchase because I really missed the credenza we had in our last house, it was on-loan from friends but I gave it back when we moved in case it got damaged.
The study is really starting to come together, now I really, really need to find a desk before my husband does!
