Most people would not equate a desk as such…but, given my oh, so, uber-amateur ways…I’ve been blogging from my lap 90% of the time. Â About 4 months ago…my neck started to really bother me…shocker! Â So, I’ve been on the lookout for a desk to double as a bedside table. Â My Kittinger bedside tables were great in my 1912 house…not so much here. Â I was looking for a pair of desks, but unless I wanted to go IKEA, I couldn’t find anything that I liked in my budget. Â Vintage? Â Fahgettahboutit…nada. Â Yesterday, my problem was solved!
You see, I’ve also been on the hunt for a groovy bookcase, and finally found one at my mall yesterday. Â It needs work (really!?) but I think it’s an easy fix. Â Today, I’m headingÂ to a shop that re-canes chairs and hope I can match the cane on the shelf and re-wrap the damaged areas. Â In the meantime, I’ll hide the part at the bottom with some file boxes.
I hear ya….What does this have to do with your desk and your neck? Â Stay with me….The bookcase replaces a console I had there previously…which is now my desk. Â You see I actually have a desk/office area in the kitchen, but it’s become apparent it’s the family desk/landing strip/catch-all. Â I can’t work there since the family clutters up the surface daily. Â I needed a place that was all mine and cozy. Â Until now…that was my favorite chair on the other side of the bedroom. Â Great for lounging, not so much for extended computer time.
Now I need to find some great artwork to hang above the desk…restyle the bookshelf 10 times, ya know…the usual stuff. Â The egg is on the move again to make way for the desk…in the living room for now…
