~small space designing~{an organized desk area}

I am so excited to have partnered up with one of my favorite stores, Cost Plus World Market, to bring you todays post! Cost Plus World Market is one of my go to stores for finding inexpensive up to date home decor items and furniture. This post is sponsored, but all opinions are my own.
Links to all products will be at the end of this post.

With school starting shortly, I wanted to give our almost 14 year old son a good quiet place where he can do his homework and stay organized. So I set out to create a desk area in his room, where he can do his homework.

I removed a dresser and hutch to do this,
and it created the perfect area for the new desk.
(stay tuned to see where I will be putting all that old "stuff")

We had fun shopping together to pick out items that are both functional and stylish.
This desk fits in perfectly with his rooms aesthetic with its wood top and clean black metal legs.
{try to ignore the mess of cords!}

We opted for this black ceramic lamp with natural shade which gives off the prettiest glow at night.
I added a touch of green with a few branches in a clear vase.

A tray holds knick knacks, pens and pencils, and this sweet little globe.

He surprised me by picking out the cute little succulent and container!
Isn't it the cutest?
The clock was the final accessory to finish off the desktop surface.

When searching for the perfect desk chair, we decided to mix in a little mid century  modern with this chair. 
It is lightweight and very versatile. 
And because little boys can make big messes, I used this huge galvanized container for his trash can :)

And because we all like a good before and after:

Here are all the links to shop this space if you'd like to create one of your own!
Most everything I chose was from the Super Natural Collection, which I am in love with.

I also found this Small Space Guide helpful.
If you live in a small home like we do, I think you'll find this guide to small spaces interesting.

So fun following along with the evolution of your kids' rooms! I still love the cowboy theme from when your son was little! That may have been how I found your blog :)

I LOVE everything about this room! Did you ever post a tutorial on the board & batten? Would you be able to share the measurements of the wood?
