The gushing was directed toward the desk in the photo above. I suppose that if you’re a nine-year-old and your empire consists of a front yard lemonade stand, a desk such as that would be fine. For anyone over the age of nine, it’s going to come up pretty short.
I rip out kitchen desks so often it’s practically a side line. I rip them out and replace them with something meaningful, like a pantry, because nearly every kitchen desk I’ve ever encountered was the size of the one above. The current owners can’t use it as a desk so it ends up the repository for the junk that has no other place to go. Here are a couple of shots from my Before files.
The owners of those desks would be mortified to see them plastered across the screen like this, but they prove a point. Kitchen desks are a waste of money and space. Besides, who sits at a desk in the kitchen anymore? Am I wrong? Do you have a desk in your kitchen that you use and love? Or is it the junk repository?
