The Look For Less

where do i begin? definitely had no intention of not blogging for a week (more maybe?). i've been insanely busy with clients, clients and more clients which i am truly happy and excited about! but i have exactly 4 hours of free time 4 mornings a week to meet with clients or you know, GSD like grocery shop, so that leaves night time to work on designs, email clients, and oh yeah catch up with my husband. and speaking of that very lovely man, he's been away for 4 out of the last five nights! my mom came and helped which was wonderful but then all hell broke loose with my little finn and long story short, he's likely getting a cast today on his left arm. :| so yeah, blogging fell off!

today i have to share a version of the look for less or high/low or whatever you want to call it! i had ordered a new desk for the office (our current desk is too small) and it came and it was all wrong plus was damaged. and i kind of knew it wasn't going to be right but have seen it in so many IG pics where it looks so pretty that i had to try. always go with your gut and mine had been telling me to get a simple white parsons table. i wanted a table instead of a desk because i wanted it to be deeper and wide than your average desk. little trick i love! anyway, i ordered the west elm version during their labor day sale. it was on major back order - like 6 months - so i started looking around for another option and voila! the felix table from overstock.

it was easy to put together and it's totally sturdy. the reviews were right on although i was a little nervous about how it would be packaged but it was so well protected and came in perfect shape. and btw the west elm version is now only available in brown so really good thing this other option exists!

the overstock table would be too small to be a legit dining table but i can see it as a desk (obviously), a kids play/homework table, even a console table if you have the space.
