So, based on my hair color you can guess that these photos were taken a while ago. June, I think? I hinted at these photos on instagram, but never got around to posting them here because blog hiatus. My office looks a little different now, I put my big desk where the chair/sidetable is and I finally have an actual sewing station for the first time in, well, forever. Which is good because I have two burlesque shows coming up and that means costuming! The rest of the room is the same, save for a bit more clutter because for whatever reason I'm incapable of keeping a room tidy for any sustained period of time.
This room is a bit awkward. Technically it can be considered a bedroom because it has a closet, but it's right off the living room and has been through quite a few iterations before ending up as my home office. the little nook where my standing desk is now has always been an awkward area because it's behind the door when it opens into the room, so it felt hard to utilize. I figured it looked just deep enough to be the perfect size for a big long standing desk, so a sheet of OSB ripped in half, and some 1x4s later: standing desk. It's a pretty long span, so I put a bracket in the center to make it more sturdy, but it doesn't really support a ton of weight. It's basically a real long, deeper than normal shelf. Super minimal and one of the most functional DIY's ever. I'm not going to do a DIY post for it because it's so basic. Cut OSB to fit your space. Screw 1x4s into wall. Set OSB on top of 1x4s. Screw top down. Done.
This guy was a thrift find when I was searching for a bar cart. It was brown faux wood and brass, so I spray painted it green.
I wanted to raise my computer screen a bit higher than where it was when it sat on the desk so I stacked some of my vintage library books and now it's perfect.
I loathe screwing things into my walls because they are lath and plaster, so I wanted to make a shelf that had the most minimal screwing possible. And also cheap. Plain wood shelves from Ikea, eye screws and hooks, and some white rope were the perfect solution. I love how minimal and clean it looks, and it was one of the cheapest DIY's I've ever done.
