Anyway I bit the bullet and finally bought it!!!
I just loooooove it!
It's 60cm longer than my old desk and gives me so much more room
In the left in the top draw I keep all my adhesives, embossing powders and other bits and bobs
In the second draw I keep my small 6x6 papers and the current Stampin' UP! cattys
The right hand side has a cupboard where I keep my dies, embossing folders and cuttlebug
Since I'm here I might just give you a little tour of the rest of my space!
I share the spare room with my partner, he has his desk on the opposite side of the room to mine.
So firstly here is my ribbon storage and the draws I keep my 12x12 and A4 paper in.
I made both of these and you can see my posts about them here and here if you're interested to read more.
Next is where I keep all my stamp sets and some of my tools (and yes this is another Ikea purchase!)
Blogged about that purchase here.
To the left of my desk I keep my inspiration board and all my embellishments. The rack I found just recently for 10 bucks and I've been meaning to paint it white but haven't got around to it yet.
In the draws below I keep envelopes, punches and of course the bottom draw is the 'catch all'.
On my desk I keep all my pens in these sweet little containers - if you didn't pick it up before in the shot of the full area you'll spot a little bin beside the desk that matches these containers.
And of course there is a little spot on my desk for a picture of the most inspiring woman I know - my BFF!
So here is the comparison
Personally I'm smitten with my new desk... however I might make one little change..... I think I might swap out the hardware for little pink coloured crystal ones!
Just to give it that extra little bit of bling :)
