(I apologize if you got this updated in your stream 4-5 times. I realized after posting it that I posted the wrong draft! Oops! Here’s the updated post)
I could really hurt your brain by explaining the whole process of the office, but I have to admit – we didn’t take a whole lot of pictures and explaining it isn’t NEARLY as much fun as just SHOWING you. We took a few iPhone photos, but that’s about it. For the most part, we used the following “plans” from Ana White as our jump off point to create our own (albeit larger) knockoff wood project a la Pottery Barn and then built it with our own mettle and might simply because we’re crazy like that. But you can return to the beginning and check out this post and this one to see how this all came about. So, without further ado, from the creativity of my screwed up (evil genius) brain, the simple plans of Ana White, the sheer brawn of my woodworking husband and the good people of Ikea for giving us a discount on two Oak Butcher Block Countertops, I present to you our new and improved office in all of its glory:
Pretty, eh? We still have some cord management issues to tackle, but other than that, this sucker’s D-O-N-E! We even splurged for one of those adjustable keyboard/mouse trays so that (hopefully) my neck and shoulders will be a wee bit happier. Maybe I just need a massage. Or a new line of work. But OHMYGOODNESS is it not gorgeous?!? My hubby is amazing, I tell ya. This was (a big part) of my birthday present to build a new workstation that we could both use eventually. It’s such a point of pride, too, to say, “Yea, we BUILT that mother trucker!” I have a hard time putting my head around it as well, but I am just so tickled with it! But seriously. What do you think?? You Tell’Us!
