a new desk from IKEA ~

Once the taxes are done, I can start redirecting my focus back on making things pretty and functional, so I am working on getting organized around the house the past couple of days.

We ventured out to IKEA a couple Sundays ago so I could try to put together a new office desk.  I came home with 2 ALEX drawers and a glass kitchen tabletop to create this design..........

I'm still looking for a rug and I just ordered curtains from IKEA, so it should all come together soon.

Hi there,
Love your desk!! I've been wanting to do something similar. Do you know the name of the Ikea tabletop that you got? I've been looking around on the website and can't find it!
Thanks so much :)

Hi Christie, not sure how to get in touch with you other than leaving you a comment here. I believe the tabletop I bought is the TORSBY. I looked through the website trying to find it and I think this is it. We went to IKEA and went through the kitchen and dining table section. I found a piece of white glass that I liked and it turned out, they sell the glass separate from the table base, so it worked out perfectly.

Good luck!
