Believe it or not, it’s been at least two weeks now, and I have changed my mind about turning the front room to an “office” space. I showed you a collection of my inspiration photos here, with this picture being my favorite (I think).
With your understanding that I have NO technical drawing skills, here’s a sketch of what I envision our “office wall” to look like:
Yes, even with graph paper I can’t draw a straight line! You get the general idea.
Since this desk will be the first thing you see upon entering our home, I so want it to be pretty. I can deal with the monitor on display—I guess that’s really no different than a television. But I really want the CPU, router, and printer to all be tucked away behind doors.
The bookshelves on either side will hold books that meet my requirements of both functional and “pretty.” I’d love for the area above the desk space to hold some vintage-y treasures, but I’m thinking if I spring for seeded glass, they could disguise more practical items!
This is the wall where the desk would go. I took this picture early last fall, standing at the front door. The left side doesn’t look like that anymore—the white entry table is gone (that’s where the suitcase wall is), and the staircase (farther to the left) has been totally remodeled.
Slowly…ever so slowly…I will get this room done!
…assuming I don’t change my mind again.
