Hooray for West Elm!

The Parson's Desk has arrived, folks!  It's new home is in Clint's "game" room.  But, before I show it off, here is a before picture of our old, giant desk.


Here she is!

It was a lot smaller than what we had, but we love it!  We live in a 3 bedroom home and plan on having children at some point.  We decided to purchase this desk because well, look at it, and so it can be moved to our bedroom to make room for a future crib.

I don't think I have shown Clint's game room off before on our blog.  This is where all the men come to hang out when they come over to play video games, drink beer, and burp real loud.  There is a lot of mismatched, hand-me-down furniture in it, which I hope to start getting rid of.  Geeze, I hope Clint isn't reading this...Don't worry honey, the Xbox will stay.


Even though it is his room and he has put up his sports crap stuff up, he was happy to let me add a little style to the room.  We have been searching for a new chair for this space for awhile now.  He hasn't found anything he's like yet, so he thought his old computer chair would work.  Whatever floats his boat.

Oh and if anyone was interested to see what our new TV looks like, here ya go!

To all my football loving fans....GO BLUE!

Actually the color is a darker green/gray. The combo of the flash with the lamp washed it out a bit. Thanks for the happy comments!

Love the new desk. We scored a knock off on Overstock a while back and now want another! I like your desk chair paired with it a lot.

I like the wall color too - what color is it?

Love that desk - very sleek!

Fabulous! That desk is just what the doctor ordered. I also love the wall color. That room is a great place to work and play! And since my Georgia Bulldogs don't ever play Michigan, I'll go ahead and compliment that awesome rug too. ;)

This is a great purchase! It's so chic, timeless and versatile. I've been checking it out whenever the West Elm catalog arrives in the mail :) Have a great week!
