I have a confession to make:  I completely spaced on telling you about our new kitchen table. Oops.

I picked up this beautiful counter height desk just before our housewarming party. It was on clearance from Pier 1 for only $179 – originally $399.

On one side of the table are standard, slightly curved legs. On the other, a bookcase/storage unit of sorts.

Oh, this old table? I’ve had it for years (wink)… can’t you tell by how worn and distressed the top is? Love.

To tell the truth, I wasn’t quite sure where it would go when I first bought it. I didn’t know if the bookcase part would look odd in the kitchen, and I didn’t know if it would take up too much room. I knew I had to have it, though.

The original plan for the breakfast nook area was to get a pub table and sit two bar stools next to it.

This table meets the height requirement, but I had no idea until I put it in the space if it would work. With a little forgotten Christmas decor, and it looks like it’s always been there – casual, cozy, and welcoming.

The other alternative for this desk is to use it in the craft room, which really isn’t a bad idea at all. I would just prefer a larger surface area than this. At any rate, it’s certainly an inspiring idea to use storage as the supports for the table top, similar to my original craft desk design here.

Now, all that’s left to do is find some reasonably priced bar stools. Craigslist, here I come!
