We just took a family road trip.
The one that lasts about seven states and 14 bathroom stops and two bags of atomic fireballs.
In an effort to promote family togetherness and pull people’s eyes away from screens, I started a game of “Would You Rather?” Have you ever played that game before? There’s an actual board game sold in stores with over 800 questions or you can play it via an app on your phone.
It’s a game that asks you to decide between two things.
Like would you rather live a life without elbows or a life without knees?
Or would you rather speak in front of 4,000 people or wear a frog costume for a month?
Would you rather be able to read a book or read a mind?
Would you rather have wisdom or would you rather have strength?
Would you rather give up coffee or your phone?
Thought-provoking scintillating questions.
So here’s my decorating version of “Would You Rather?”
Would you rather have a desk that was plain jane and ordinary….
…or one that can go all transformer and morph into three things?
You chose the desk with superpowers?
Isn’t this a fun game?
Westleigh put in a request for more desk space for her room.
She wanted to spread out and craft and read and write and draw hand-written letters and put on make-up and she needed desk space for all that. Her other desk had amazing storage, but it didn’t really have a lot of space to spread out. We are in the middle of re-doing her closet and were able to move most of the things in her desk to her closet and so that freed us up for different desk options.
I found this desk over on the Lamps Plus website. You can see it here.
And it’s UNDER $100 DOLLARS.
It literally has superpowers.
Especially if you have a small room with limited space that wants to live big.
Here’s the desk with both sides lined up together.
The two desks layer on top of each other when you push them against the wall.
You can see how they attach here.
Here are the two sides of the desk together against the wall.
That’s not all it can do.
Here’s the desk pulled out at a forty-five-degree angle.
It’s so easy to move.
You just pull it out.
Here’s a close-up of the roller feet.
It’s super flexible and super easy to move.
You just pull it out and it glides into place.
We added this set of blush velvet dining chairs with gold legs to her room.
There’s one for each side of the desk.
You always need an extra chair for guests.
They are actually dining room chairs and they come in a set of two.
You can see them here.
This is how Westleigh keeps it most of the time.
She LOVES all the extra space and the flexibility of the desk and the chairs.
Two ways. One desk.
I thought that was all it could do.
Until the other day I came in and she had it arranged like this.
Just when you thought desk life couldn’t get any better, it went and changed again.
This arrangement is perfect for a small room.
Look at all that desktop area without taking up too much space.
And now for my answers to the game:
1. Life without knees
2. Speak in front of 4,000 people.
3. Read a book
5. My phone
Hello Captain Obvious.
What is life without coffee?
How about you?
