A miracle in our own home office

Husband worked his magic and turned the furniture pieces into a real functioning desk.




Here it is in all its glory.

What’s even more amazing is that he was able to finish the assembly in about 15 minutes.

I didn’t know whether to be envious that he could complete the assembly in such a short time (it would have easily translated into 2 hours of Tootie time) or just be content that the project is done.

I picked neither of those options and decided instead to be completely overjoyed that we have a real, live desk in our office. Our computer and printer finally have a home instead of being nomads shuttled from place to place.

There’s only one slight problem. The chair is a little too short for the desk. In Husband’s very diplomatic way, he told me that when I sat at it I looked “like a kindergartener at an oversized desk.”

I would gladly keep the kindergartener look, if I knew it would guarantee me snack time, followed immediately by nap time.

But, since it won’t, we’ll be shopping for a new chair soon.

Thankfully, I’ve learned a lesson from the frustration known as desk assembly, and I’m happy to put Husband in charge of any assembly (and/or humiliation) that will be required for the chair.

It looks great and I love the print over your desk. I know the frustration over putting things together. It's usually my husband's job too, but if it looks easy I take over so I can feel proud of myself! :-)

Oh how funny...can I have snack and nap time too?!

Yay for the new addition to your home...isn't it wonderful having men to do the things we can't?

Have a great day!

Love the painting on the wall! So soothing for an office!

I agree, snack and a nap would most certainly make me a nicer person. Shall I bring cake ;)

Hi Tootie,

However tough it may be to assemble, the desk is a beauty. Now you will post all your wonderful stories sitting at that desk. Yes, you should get a proper chair which is comfortable also.

Cheers;
Manohar.

The office looks great! And, nap time is my favorite too... not really for the naps (my lucky children get those) but for the peace and quiet!
