where I work...Wednesday, June 03, 2015
I've been living in my "new" apartment for around four months now. It took a while but I'm finally at a point with my office where I'm super happy with how it's shaping up. My apartment has two bedrooms. I took the larger of the two for my office. Partly because why would I need to sleep in such a large room? But mostly because the evening light is perfect in here. I'm definitely most productive in the morning but the lighting in here as the sun starts to go down is so relaxing and a boost to my energy level. Bonus points for the fact that my plants are absolutely thriving in this room.
The newest addition to this room, and what finally made it feel finished to me was adding a second desk. After I started sewing again I realized having a second desk was a necessity. I didn't feel comfortable sewing on the glass top of my computer desk and it was annoying to have to always be scooting my computer and papers out of the way. The right side of the room was a bit heavy anyway so adding the second desk to sew at not only gave me more room to work but balanced out the room.
my apartment, other than my living room, I still wouldn't consider it 100% finished. I'm sure there will be lots of little changes here and there for as long as I live here but for right now, I love it! It's fun to have so much space dedicated to work. As much as I loved the office in my last apartment, working in a corner of the living room wasn't exactly ideal. This is my favorite office space to date!

Lockers were the best craigslist score ever, and nearly everything else was picked up second hand.
