She's well past needing the crate, so it's been moved out of the room. Then I had a big empty space by
this desk from Ikea. At $130, it definitely wasn't the cheapest option, but it was most definitely the smallest and most stylish desk I could find. Plus, it's the same dark stain as the side table I have in my living room, so when I move into a home of my own these two pieces will look very nice together.
Now I just need to add some art above this desk to really make it feel a little cozier.
