Happy Monday, friends!
I’ve just returned from the SNAP Conference, where I learned a ton! Ready to implement all the good stuff I’ve learned, I’m planning my new home office, which will be in the new guest room after the big room move-around here.
Here are the key things I’m going to need in my new office:
1. A Good Desk
As they say, a good desk is hard to find. I’ve never had a real desk as a grown-up. I’ve used my old dining room table (from my apartment):
Then I used an old door:
But, even with a glass top, it was awkward to use with the panels. I could invest in a larger piece of glass, I suppose. But I feel like now it’s time for a REAL desk.
In the next month, I’m going to be scouring thrift stores and my fave consignment store for a desk. Naturally, I’ll keep you posted.
2. Command Center
To run my own business this year (i.e., this little ol’ blog), I’m going to need a command center. I need some big monthly calendars – preferably magnetic, too – kind of like these (but maybe bigger? Go big or go home, they say.):
I’m thinking about painting the wall with magnetic white board paint and making my own big calendars. I have a bulletin board already, so that’s taken care of.
3. A Comfy Chair
Along with the desk, I need a comfy chair on which to place my bum while I’m doing all this creating and writing. I have a parsons chair with a neutral cover, but I might spiff it up a bit with paint or fabric.
So, those are some of the plans I have so far. What do you have in your home office (or office away from home) that you cannot live without?
