I've never really had an "office" for myself in the house, I never needed it. But now, with the computer projects (blogging, photo's, making books) I found that I really needed something a bit more organized.
This is my old desk. I've had this little wicker desk since high school, and it was an antique then. I love the way it looks, its so cute but it was not an efficient desk for working at. It only has one tiny drawer, and all my other supporting stuff had to be stored in cubbyholes. The keyboard was on my lap and things were never to be found, or were falling off the table.
So, after much to do, I bought a new desk. DH was reluctant, because it wasn't cheap - but I went with the cheapest I could find. And because our space is small, I had to buy a child's version of a desk so it's narrow and not too deep. It works in the space. It has three drawers, and shelves and cubbyholes. I got it yesterday and spent the night filling it up with my junk.
See all the cubbyholes filled with my papers and office stuff? And please note the beautiful painting of Samson done by the talented and oh so generous Ms. Lolo. Something I will look at every day.
I'm going to put some cork board behind the computer monitor so that I can post artwork, pictures, notes.
It'll actually take me awhile to get used to this space, how to sit...what's the most comfortable. And because of the orientation, I now have to sit with my back to the window, but a quick twist of the head and I can see the driveway and street.
For some reason I see things in photos that I never see in "real time". Right now I see that the walls need some color - we've stayed with safe "Navaho white" for years and while it's peaceful, it can be a bit boring right? I've got terracotta tiles in this room (well, imitation terra cotta) so maybe a nice green?
Off to Saturday chores and fun. Have a good weekend my friends - and thank you for all your wonderful comments on my last post.
