The Office Project – Not Quite There

The Office Project

Because I know all this talk of my new office has been so fascinating, so exciting, I thought I’d tell you a little more. Yesterday I put my desk and my chair together. Those IKEA desks are something else. It wasn’t putting together a bookcase, that’s for sure. Nevertheless, it was pretty fun. I did have to have Todd help me place the top of the desk on after I’d put the base together, but that’s just because it was a two person job.

So guess what I’ve been doing today? WORKING! In my newly painted work space. But it’s nowhere near done. There is so much still to be done. And guess what! Remember in this post I was lamenting the fact that I have three boxes of books and in this post I said I was going to redo the bookcase? Well, I’m not. Do you know why? BECAUSE TODD’S GOING TO BUILD ME A NEW ONE! Yes indeedy, folks! The cheapo bookcase I have right now obviously isn’t big enough to house all my books and I mentioned to him how it would be really nice to have a bigger bookcase and how there was room for it and on and on and he said, “Sure. We can do that. Just give me your specs.” HE TOTALLY SAID THAT!

And it’s going to be so wonderful that I may not want to actually put books in it.

NAH! I’m just joshing!!

I ordered a floor cabinet for some storage and it should be here tomorrow. Once I get that in place and the rocker where it’s going to go, I’ll know exactly where on the wall my desk will sit. Then I can start figuring out where to hang this cool bit of IKEA wonder for pens/pencils, files, and possibly my mouse and spare glasses:

I can also see what my organizational needs are and, if needed, Todd is going to build me some shelves for over the desk. I’m not 100% positive on that yet. We can just be surprised together.

Still on the to do list besides what’s mentioned above:

  • Faux wood blinds
  • New cushions for rocker
  • Paint rocker
  • Paint side table
  • Hang pictures
  • Bask in the glory of my beautiful office
