I am in the process of setting up my office space. I am, of course, addicted to this blog. I love sharing deals, recipes, and so much more with you. The thing is, right now I am working in an area that has very little space. I live in a 2-bedroom apartment and up until last week my extra bedroom was filled like a storage area. A lot of it was my husband’s stuff and I finally got him to go through it and toss so many old computer parts (he has been building his own computers since he was four). Now that the room is empty, my husband is going to build me an awesome space!
First, we picked out a computer desk. I found a cute red one that fits in the corner. We got is off Craigslist for just $25! It is not in perfect condition but it is exactly what I wanted. We also picked up a 2-drawer black file cabinet for $10.
Second, we went to Home Depot. We also picked up shelving and almost everything needed for the desk area, including the peg board! The friendly people at Home Depot cut the wood for the shelves, the peg board, and the particle board (the desktop) into the sizes we needed.We picked up Gliden duo paint in black for the desk and shelves. We are spray painting the black file cabinet with a hammered finished black so that any imperfections are hidden. The peg board is going to be a red that matches the desk. The room is going to have a red/black color theme to go with my Disney/ Mickey love. This trip to Home Depot took about 3.5 hours.
What are some things you love about your craft/office space? Are you super organized, more organized than others, or you don’t know where you left the scissors last? I have to admit, I am more of the last statement. Hopefully, this handmade, custom space will help my cluttered life!
