recovering couponer (if I still had the time, I would keep doing it) and so I use to
file all of my newspaper inserts. I tried using plastic stack-able file totes that
were portable but found that I really needed a desk where I could access
the files easily and make it as simple as possible to use.
My Dad had made desks out of file cabinets and doors before so the idea
got our brains turning. Why not create my own desk with the things that I
needed most…files? I purchased two file cabinets. Originally Sam was going to custom cut a piece of
wood to go over the two file cabinets but in a stroke of genius he
discovered that our kitchen table leaves that we weren’t using fit the
area perfectly. And they were just collecting dust in the closet so why not put them to use!
office chair at my desk. I just pivot the dining room table chair when I
want to sit down and work and presto I have a place to sit!
yet say what they say rings loud and clear in my heart. I tend to like
things in their place but I also think that you have to let your hair
down and “color outside the lines” in order to experience life to the
in them. Anything green that I don’t have to be responsible to water is a
to have on hand when I need to write a note to someone.
I have also loved the splash of color that it added.
power cord for the laptop as well as a phone charger available. I love
being able to plug in and sit down at a desk as well as have the option
of grabbing my computer and heading to any other place in the house if
needed. The other thing that I love about this desk is that since
everything could easily be removed off of the top I could always have
additional serving space if needed for the dining room. So maybe create
an appetizer bar or a place to serve drinks…the possibilities are endless!
By utilizing this extra nook in my dining room for my desk now I am just feet away from this goodness! I can grab whatever hot drink sounds the yummiest that day and then get right back to work! And it all comes packed in ONE single room. This is why I love mixing function & fun…it creates one beautiful environment to live and create in!
