Corners of Our Home 21

my mom arrives tomorrow. she will stay in our "spare room" which also doubles as our office and may someday have to revert to being a bedroom (who knows?).

in any case. the desk needs to be organized/cleaned by 6:45 p.m. tomorrow. when the bugs and i will head to the airport to pick-up "grammy".

office.corner

the desk belonged to d's dad. we repainted it and put a new top on it. d built me the cubbies/inspiration board long ago. or at least it seems long ago. before the bugs. when we lived in a big warehouse in mid-city. and i had a "real" office for "my business". it came from plans here.

i have plans to redo this room sometime soon. would like a longer, maybe L-shaped, built in desk. room for my sewing machine. the room has access to the backyard which we would like to take more advantage of. (right now there is a sofa-bed in front of the sliding door which no longer slides.) paint it white and crowd it with d's unframed landscapes of the southbay (glimpsed here).

but first i just need to clean off that desk - wish me luck!

You should see my desk. Neat as a pin, thanks to my horizontal filing system. Works great until you have to find anything.

Good luck tidying!

Cleaning always feels good to me- well, once it is done, not so much during.

Good luck. Enjoy your visit with your mom!

Eek! I share your pain - sister-in-law and 3 kids arrive Saturday and my dining table is craft chaos central. I love your cubbies by the way.

Whenever company comes, my office/studio is the room I tell people not to go in. I'm glad my guest bed isn't in here! Good luck straightening up. That is on my fall agenda...

Funny how I find the chaos in your office so much more appealing than my own! Love the cubbies/inspiration board setup. Good luck whipping it into shape!

what is it with desks? ours looks practically the same. good luck with that, and have a wonderful weekend with grammie.

Love the cubbies D made for you, love a handyman. [Mr. S is not that handy, but thank goodness the man can cook!] Have fun with your mother!

your desk looks like my brain, hence the weird email you just got from me. let's hope this weekend involves slowing down for me...enjoy your mom! xo
