two-year anniversary: the house now

"home office"

there’s this:

a more functional office

It’s a tiny – and strange – office, that’s true. Awkwardly shaped. Has a wall with three doors leading to the same storage area. Unpainted floor and orange-yellow walls.
But, it has lots of potential. Like a great corner desk that the previous owner left behind:
And now, it has some new shelves.
Instead of a filing cabinet, I chose an IKEA shelf that holds five filing boxes. And for general storage, this fun bookshelf. They fill the wall leading into the office from the basement TV room.
It has to be a highly efficient workspace, since my mom and I will be sharing it when she comes to town. So, lots of storage boxes, labels and baskets.

Still a work in progress but so far so good.
