Desk Duty

So babies – they kinda take over and claim their own spaces in this world. Which is ultimately a good thing, but in the mean time, we’re pretty busy over here shifting our office from workspace, to baby space. Mostly this is fun and games (and a few too many trips to Home Depot – $$$) but it also meant pulling out our (insert JAY’s) bob the builder skills to whip up a desk of his pregnant wife’s dreams.

This is our office currently. I don’t feel *too* sad about transitioning this space over because it’s like not done in the least and basically a glorified storage room.

And the floor is NEVER empty like that, haha. Usually has costumes or books or a teepee splayed out in the middle of it 😉 This was Saturday am right after our weekend round up of vacuuming. It’s a fleeting moment, so I had to capture it.

And this is the desk area.

And this is what I dreamed up for this room and I told y’all that it was still going down just in a new locale. (Because this is going in it’s place…)

Drum roll pa-lease. The new locale!

Not quite an office, persay, but y’all, I think it’s going to be the perfect little nook for a desk / workspace and a landing spot for our computer. This is ultimately what I envision – something built out entirely around the window, with some bookcases on either end to store odds and ends, and to make a statement as well.

Here is a general idea of the look/feel I’m going for! Perhaps a base color similar to this?

And I love how this photo shows a very similar bookcase flanking either side of the wall.

I’ll have progress on our build-out next week, perhaps even some after photos. I may have to buy Jay a 12-pack of beer or some bourbon to get a finished desk done around here 😉
