For those of you who know me, you know that my “office” consists of part of our kitchen island, piles in the laundry room, stacks by my bed, and miscellaneous bags of books and other supplies. Organization is NOT my strength. It is a goal–it is NOT a strength.
So when my husband and I talked about converting our den/piano room into an office for the two of us to share (gulp), I decided to go for it. Not being known for being the most decisive of couples, we stewed on this for a long time and then finally made the commitment to getting it started over break.
We knew we were on a budget (Translation: We would be putting together our own furniture) and we had a pretty tight space. I started by taking some measurements.
…and we followed it up with a massive “room emptying” experience.
