I Want an Office!

For years now, I have dreamed of having my own office! No more sharing with the Hubby while at home trying to blog or trying to do my spring shopping. No more sharing with the accountant while at work while she's trying to pay the bills and pay the employees (like me)! I guess I should not complain because it certainly beats sitting at Starbucks. Talk about not being able to get anything done...Whew!

While in Nashville, my so called office was up in the attic. I was freezing in the winter and sweating like mad in the summer, so I don't even really even count that. Anyway, I've always admired both offices (above & below) by Ruthie Sommers. I attempted the sawhorse desk (see Williams Sonoma Home) while living in Nashville for my attic office. But I was a little too cheap to actually buy that sleek sawhorse desk...which can be expensive. I even called a few glass people and got some quotes, and kept my eyes open for a pair of sawhorses, which, unfortunately, I never found. So, yes, I still need a desk of my own. Last year sometime I did focus my attention to finding myself a desk, but then I started thinking that I wanted something more rustic like a farm tabl--go figure!

If I can't have a whole office maybe I can a least get a this. Add some pretty wallpaper and a bamboo chair and voila! To think that I had my hands on a chair just like that a few months ago at a consignment store. Image from Better Homes & Garden

And at this point in time, I'll settle for a wall with a beautiful bulletin board and the parsons desk from West Elm, which is much more affordable. I've thought about that desk too for the last few years. I just need to make my mind up because the Hubby and the accountant are getting on my nerves! Just kidding....not!
