A Shared Room Update with Room & Board

One of my goals this summer is to update the girls' room in a few areas, namely their space for drawing & art projects. We bought this P'kolino chalk table & chair set (see below) when Millie was 2, and it has definitely served them well. But when you have two children who are growing like weeds (with knees now touching the table top when they sit down!), well, it's no longer doing the trick.

Enter my search for a desk big enough for two kids, a task that turned out to be much harder than I anticipated. Obviously for our NYC apartment (or anyone living in a "cozy" arrangement), space is at a premium. So, buying two separate desks for a shared bedroom just wasn't an option. I began my search by looking at every home furnishings website I could think of as well as countless Pinterest kids' room boards. Nothing was long enough for two kids, and we're not handy enough to build one ourselves (actually just thinking about that is funny).

Then, finally, I checked out Room & Board. A friend of ours had bought a couch there a while back, but I never realized they had a kids' section. What a fantastic discovery! I love their modern, clean designs that are as functional as they were stylish. After checking out their desk offerings, I discovered their Moda Desk would be perfect for the girls length-wise (48 inches, to be exact) and with a Moda Desk Organizer on top, they'd each have their own space. And while the cost isn't cheap, it's also impeccably well-made (in upstate New York) by local craftsmen, and its classic style is one that will grow with them over the years. In fact, they'll probably be fighting over who gets to take it with them when they head off to college -- but we'll deal with that then!

Harry Potter fans will appreciate what Millie is working on here

Finally a space to write and create and collaborate together without overwhelming their shared space -- thank you, Room & Board
