In local desk news, an antique variety has been my saving grace the last two weeks. I finally have a spot!
It was Doug’s grandma’s desk growing up. She gave it to my mother-in-law, who gave it to us.
It fits perfectly next to the fridge, it isn’t too deep, it doesn’t have a lot of storage, which is perfect. I can’t have a desk that has a lot of space. I have trouble with restraint. And stuffing crap into desks. This desk is the perfect size cause I can’t do that.
It holds a laptop and things like business cards, coffee, receipts, measuring tape, painter’s tape, oh and washi tape. Only the essentials in here! 😉
The bottom has a basket with commonly used tools (so I’m no longer hunting for them), and a basket with mail and my camera. The antique stool fits nicely on the right.
I was going to paint it yellow. But it’s staying white. I’ll clean it up a bit and treat it to some nice knobs, but there is no way I am painting this desk. Why, you ask?
This spot gets the PERFECT amount of afternoon light. And is perfect for naptime crafting tutorial pictures.
it also doubles as my own little photo studio:
It also gives me the perfect view of our family room so I can see what the kids are doing while I’m working. Uhhh...
Because it is close to them, it is also easier to get buried in the computer. Maybe that downfall will help me work on it. Be a bit more present.
Look up at these paintings and remember what’s important. Close the computer, and get back to them. 🙂
