A couple weeks ago, I got a crazy hair to change our office around. I just walked in there and could.not.take.it.any.more! Does that ever happen to you?
Here it was before.
See those cords? There was really no getting around them and no hiding them. I loved the desk in the middle of the room because the front of it is b-e-a-utiful! But I seriously couldn't handle the cords anymore. Plus I store all my decorative items and gift wrapping supplies in the closet in there and getting to the closet meant walking between the desk and the chairs and it was a tight fit.
So I took all the drawers out of this soild wood, very expensive desk, cleaned it all out (seriously, we had some junk in there), and started pushing and maneuvering until I got it where I wanted it.*
And here ya go.
Ahh, no cords.
The room looks 10 times bigger and getting to the closet is easy-peasy now. The two chairs in the room are actually our extra dining room chairs. I don't put the leaf in unless we're having company, so this room is the perfect spot for them. I picked up some paint chips at Lowes last week, and I'm thinking this room will end up some shade of dark blue. This room gets tons of natural light from the big window, so even though it's a small room, I think it can handle a darker color on the walls. Now I just need some bookshelves (all our books currently reside in two or three bankers boxes) and some curtains and this room will look fabulous! I've actually put off doing anything to this room thinking it would *eventually* (don't be getting any crazy ideas Aunt Missa!) be a kid's room, but our guest room will turn into a kid's room first so this room has a few years left as an office.
*Note to self: Don't try this again because your back hurt for two days and you had matching bruises on the outside of both of your knees from where you'd leaned up against it and pushed with all your might. Remember, this desk is a BEAST.
