A study corner for RaeAnne
Been wanting to buy a proper desk for RaeAnne since last year as she will have her own room. She loves to draw but the picnic table with a hole in the centre is not very suitable for drawing and it's also too low, whereas the crayola art table cum easel is too small. Also, the lighting at the living/dining area is a bit dim.
We went to a few places including Ikea, Courts, Piccolo house and Casa kidi, to look for a suitable study desk. I wanted a space maximising desk with storage so that she can keep her textbooks and other study stuff in future. We finally zoomed in on a Cilek study desk for $300+ at Casa kidi in a sweet pink castle design (her favourite colour) that is not too wide due to space constraint but ok to last until primary school. We got a pink acrylic swivel chair on clearance as well.
Although we ordered it in Dec, the desk took months to come and finally arrived today. She loves the table luckily cos we had no time to bring her to choose. Her CC will start having spelling for K1 kids from July onwards so timing is good. Although she will leave her carefree 'no homework' toddler days soon, hope her new desk will help ease the transition and make studying happier and more fun for her. :)
