Office Armoire [Thursday Think Tank]


Been dreaming a lot about the things I'd like to do if we move into a new house.  Ah, the ideas I have...  For instance I'd really love to own this office armoire.  Gorgeous!  
But...at a sticker price of $3,000 I don't want to pay for it.

What is a girl to do?

Build one herself perhaps?  

The internet is a wonderful thing.  I began researching and found out how to build a computer armoire - as in build the armoire from scratch.  Eh, not sure I want to be that much of a DIYer.  So then I looked up how to convert an armoire into a computer desk.  Did you know that you can buy a keyboard drawer?  Who knew?

Now I all I have to do is start stalking Craigslist to find a kick*&# armoire!  

Heh heh...

I'm excited.  Can you tell?

How about you?  What is your Think Tank this week?
Thursday Think Tank
WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR THINK TANK THIS WEEK?  
IT IS YOUR TURN TO LINK UP... 
HERE ARE THE RULES! 
  1. Link up any post from the past week that features some creative thinking going on in your creative world.   It can be anything, quilting, home improvement, fashion, crafting, DIY gifts, cooking...whatever you have recently thought "hmmm, you know what I should create" is perfectly appropriate for the Think Tank.  TTT is all about whatever you are currently brainstorming and would like feedback or encouragement on!
  2. Somewhere in your post, link back here to my blog. (Or grab the T.T.T. button for your sidebar.)
  3. Comment on at least a few of the other links—because what fun is a linky party without comments?

Ack! 3000? It sure is gorgeous though. You can do it, you can make one. I know you can. :)

I think you may need a mini vacation in France so you can do a little 'research' ahem there ;-)

this is a fabulous idea! and nope, I wouldn't have guessed you can buy a keyboard drawer. I love online shopping - you can turn up most anything :)

Yes you can justify the price tag but you are going to have to use it or sit at it 3000 times😄. Well that's how I justify buying a pair of over priced shoes and handbag.
