We knew when we moved in we needed some place to put Conan's computer (which currently resides downstairs because we don't have any AC and in the summer, this room is like an oven). We designed and built these shelves and the desk along with nifty sliding compartments for a printer/scanner. They really are super handy and when the weather permits, we'll move the computer back up here because it's a shame to waste this space.
I got the (incredibly heavy) Brown-Morse office chair at the DAV for a whopping $3.50 and all of those fabulous old bookends, we got from a church that was going out of business (Do churches do that? Well, they were.)
Speaking of paint, we got the bathroom paint (eek!)
