What an Incredible Day...

Saturday, July 16, 2011
I got up at 9am for a conference call and then worked on... everything today. Work. School. Home. Four loads of laundry. Cleaned/organized every nook and cranny in the house. It is true, that once you start, you just keep going (or at least I do).

When I was in Larry Crowne, the idea to create a Closet Office came to me. Once I had a picture of what I thought I could create, I had to do it. Plus... Working from home, it's lovely to have an official space to work in.

So, I went to home depot today, and bought paint (Egyptian Nile - guess that color), wood, cinder blocks (what a bitch) flowers, and then walmart at midnight (after I had finished piecing everything together) to get a few nicknacks for office things. Total? I think I spent around $83 dollars. But it looks like a viable, beautiful space. That i want to sit at. For hours.

It seems that a number of things in my house have been waiting for me to create this space because everything just fits in... so... nicely. This came together really effortlessly. The exact measurements I needed were available. The exact pieces. The color, everything. I don't know how I got so lucky. Maybe it's planning, or maybe I just have gotten better at visualizing a realistic outcome... It used to take me 2-3 tries to get things right.

Not only that, but it expands on my original idea of having my tv in my closet for movies. Now i have everything hooked up so my computer connects directly to my big screen sony, and I can use it as a computer monitor (hello photoshop work!) as well as watch movies on netflix in bed on a normal-sized screen, instead of curled up to the glow of my 17-inch macbook.

Funny how I have a two-bedroom apartment, and the second room is a closet and my bedroom closet is, in a sense, a room. But the best part of the office? I can close it off like it doesn't exist whenever I want to. You would never be the wiser. :)

It turned out just as I hoped. And it's my favorite aesthetic - pretty, but functional - and the perfect mix of male and female.
