Out With the Old: In With New

Out with the old and in with the new. Well, not really new, old new.




I have had this little inexpensive desk for a couple of years and it has served me well, but sometime around Christmas my sweet husband decided to swap desks.


We went to an auction in Wichita Kansas about 8 years now and got a great deal on an office desk.

We at the time did not have a place to put it in the house when we moved here so we took it to the college campus and put it in my husbands office. That is were it has lived for almost 5 years now. BUT .........

NOW IT LIVES IN MY SHOP!

WHAT YA THINK?????

LOOK! It has a front panel and all closed in. It has a few bumps and scratches but I think it looks wonderful! It has DRAWERS! 4 of them! Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!!

Now if you are feeling a bit sorry for my husband and the thought of that old desk sitting in his "office" do not be alarmed.

My husband's "office" is actually a work room and it stacked from the ceiling to the floor with computer components and cables and speakers and bracket. Sitting on his desk or what was his desk is a computer where he tapes and records and moves in and out of the university servers and computers and works his magic. It is a utilitarian office and not a "swank" office.

Oh you ladies know that if it were a "swank" office I would never have allowed him to swap the two desks! My old desk is very useful for him and the nice desk is LOOKING GOOD IN MY SHOP!

I have my laptop to the left and my work PC monitor to the right where I do my designs. I can work and blog at the same time.......

(in the first picture you can see my wreath on the window.. in the second one we have taken it down)

All is well in my life!

  1. Very nice, Denise. It's amazing how something like that can just brighten up your life. Thank you for the award. I appreciate you thinking of me. I stayed on facebook mainly because two of my daughters and my granddaughters are on there. Now and then we communicate. I really am lost on it though, I don't know what I'm doing.

  3. I'm liking it...looks realy neat...
    with lots of work space. I've been working on my computer room for several days now...cleaning out and getting rid of a lot of stuff...it has been so cluttered with not enough room for what is in it...you have a nice space...
    and it does feel good when we can make improvements to our space.

    Bless you!

  7. Its a whole new look!
    I like the L arrangement. I've done that in my studio since I've been rearranging things. I put the table I normally use for jewelry making beside my scrapbook table. Now I can use the extra space when I need it.
