Last month I wrote about my journey towards creating the perfect home office space.
And I’m just about there this month.
So last time we checked in on this topic I was still out in the main room, using my window desk, but on the search for “my desk”.
And I found it.
On Craigslist, for $25.
It was a clunky old desk, but it had the bones of what I wanted.
After a morning of cutting it up, rearranging it’s parts and adding some new parts of my own, there it was. My desk.
I took off the cabinet that held up one side, chopped off one of the drawers that made up the other side, bought legs and angled plates to attach them, and my modern desk was born.
It fits perfectly in that open space that was waiting for it in my back bedroom.
The very same day I went in search of a chair, not expecting to find it. But then there it was sitting, unmarked at the thrift store.
How much? I asked.
Hmm, how about $10 she whispered back.
Sold! I said.
I still need to sew up a cover for the cushion (not too big into the pattern), but I’ll get around to that eventually.
I grabbed my framed print of downtown that was living in my bathroom, along with the candle holder that was with it.
And the finishing touch?
An ethernet to thunderbolt adapter for my laptop.
And we were in business.
This is my space.
This is where I go and feel that sense of, “this is where we work, Victoria.”
And I couldn’t be happier.
Not to mention I’ve spent less than $70 so far for all of it.
