Kids' Study Nook

For quite a while now I've been on the lookout for a sweet little desk for my boys to use for doing homework, looking up "stuff" on Google and working on projects. I have been very inspired by cute study areas such as these...


















Aren't they all GORGEOUS?!? I have been itching to create a cute little study nook of our own and finally in Vinnie's this morning I found this...


A gorgeous wooden vintage desk for just $10!!! AND they now have FREE delivery! I LOVE it, 4 drawers for lots of paper and craft supplies and the 2 shelves will be perfect for books, mini-figs, pottery creations and whatever else the munchkins deem necessary :-)


I also spotted this fab chair last month at council clean up, FREE on the side of the road!

I am planning to paint the desk a lovely pale vintage blue (I won't need to bother giving it the distressed look, my boys will sort that out ;-), red gloss on the chair and lots of little bits and pieces on the desk such as the lovely retro orange lamp I got earlier this year at a flea market.

Tip: If you are ever looking for inspiration to decorate your kids' rooms you need look no further than The Boo and The Boy - a fantastic blog full of gorgeous rooms, designs and ideas!

Ooh that'll look great! Love the fact that the chair was free (kerching!)and I have no doubt that boys will unintentionally sort out a distressed look!

that desk has great lines and lucky for you- it's already white- so much easier to paint over!
