Gold Desk Ikea Hack

She had me at the big gold perfectly-spaced polka dots on the wall.  But then she went and made over an Ikea desk for about $50 and I nearly fainted.  Check out this perfection.

My friends, if you haven’t been to Just Bella blog, you really need to pay a visit.  Christine is mama to this precious thing, which, in and of itself, is worth the trip.  One thing I really appreciate about Christine’s design sense is her simplicity and ability to beautifully edit a space.  She’s makes everything seem effortless and I feel like she spends a lot of time “in the moment” if you know what I mean.  Look at her creativity in styling her mantle for the holidays. Adding just a few things each season creates such a totally different look.

    That desk is perfect. I have been eyeing those Ikea legs for a while (that sounded funny), but I love them even more in gold!

    Christine is my favorite & I consider her one of my blog besties! Her style's impeccable. And her little gal Alice's antics make my day. Adore!
