My New Secretary Desk

secretary desk with hutch

Since downsizing my space, I was in need of a small desk–one that could fit all of my office/ planner accessories. I prefer to be as organized as possible and grabbing office supplies from my night stand just wasn’t cutting it!

Even though this current place is incredibly modern, I was on the hunt for a traditional piece–one that I’ve wanted for years. I’ve always loved the look of a secretary desk. I especially the hutch or piece that folds down so that the attractive little table turns into a desk! It’s a great place to keep office supplies and other necessities that you don’t want lying around–simply close up the hutch and you’re back to having a classic piece that’s perfect to display pictures and other treasures.

I was lucky enough to score this piece on Facebook Market place for just $50! It’s a well made piece–solid cherry wood. Truly I feel like a scored an amazing deal. While my current living space is overly modern, I was able to find a place in the bedroom to house the desk. Because my bedroom is carpeted, I didn’t have to worry about two very different shades of wood driving me nuts! My bedroom now has a beautiful traditional desk and I’m able to productively work (my dressing table chair is the perfect height!).

Since all of my overflow decorations are in storage, I decorated in a minimal way–creating a mini gallery wall above the desk. I think the room now has a beautiful mix of traditional and modern!

I’d have to say this has been my BEST Facebook Marketplace purchase. Have you ever scored an amazing deal online? I’d love to hear your experiences!
