Most people have a place in their home dedicated to paperwork, bills, or record keeping (is that still a thing?). Actually, most people SHOULD have that. In reality I’m guessing most people don’t. We do our bills in the kitchen or dining room, maybe at work or in bed, pretty much wherever we can spread out a little. And that’s when things start to get messy. Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a little corner somewhere in your home to keep the important paper work so it doesn’t get lost in the daily rubble of junk mail and credit card offers?
I know what you’re thinking — “That’s great but I don’t have enough space in my home for another desk just for bills and papers.”—I get it. What if I told you you could not only keep your bills safe, but also your booze! BINGO! SOLD! SIGN ME UP!
Look at this great little Patchwork Secretary from West Elm.
This piece is not that large, only about 49″ tall and long X 20″ deep, not too big at all. It is however, awesome! It truly is business meeting pleasure, just be careful they don’t meet too often or your finances will be in big trouble!
Now for the bad news. The bar/desk is currently selling for $1,400!!!!! Yowsers! West Elm carries a whole line of this Patchwork style with different colored wood panels on the facade of different pieces of furniture. A very trendy modern look that may not be for everyone, but certainly is for me. There’s a dresser, armoire, nightstand, and secretary also available in this same style. But again, they are not cheap by any means. However, West Elm is always running sales and discounts, so if you hit it at the right time it could be worth the splurge!
