Sometimes, I envision a cool desk like this in the den but then, because I am aware of my weaknesses, I realize that all those little shelves within the cabinet would soon be full of stuff I probably don't even need. On the Iowa City Craigslist, this desk is listed at $75.
Then I think about the polar opposite of the above desks and think about a modern desk like the one below. On the Iowa City Craigslist, this desk is listed at $190.
While either desk would be a great Christmas present, ultimately, I won't end up with either desk. Knowing the way things go in my life, purchasing the desk would lead to a repainting of the den project and that is something, with all that is going on in life at the moment, is not a project I am willing to even risk needing to undertake. Besides, Megan has been talking for years, literally, about painting her room. I don't like to paint, even if I am the one that cleans the brushes and only paints the inside of closets. That project isn't even in the budget at the moment.
