The Everything Table

February 3, 2010

 Check out my latest apartment purchase. Moving into a new place is an opportunity to clean out and upgrade. We chose to do both and finally parted with the sturdy and always affordable IKEA desk. It did the job for years, but eventually you need to move on to bigger and better.

When we decided to buy a custom desk for the new office, Staples, Ikea and Pottery Barn were nowhere on the list of places to find this essential new item. It had to be an investment piece that met the needs of a self-employed, work from home designer and matched our future home decor. Without thinking twice we headed to our favorite place, Olde Good Things. They create custom tables from their warehouse/studio in Scanton, PA according to your desired height, size and stain. They recycle old wood from barns and other buildings and allow you to choose your legs to create a table that meets your exact needs.

We choose some cool, old metal table legs that came from some factory in Providence, RI. The company name is stamped on the legs and the once green paint is stylishly chipping. We chose our wood and color stain, provided height and length measurements and about 5 weeks later our new desk was delivered to our apartment.

It could not be more perfect and fits nicely into the new home office space surrounded by computers, books, fun knick knacks and plant life. We move on to lamps and a TV stand…
