Remember when I said we were going to turn our sunroom into a playroom? Well, as our new norm continues to establish itself, it’s become pretty clear that that’s not what it actually needs to be right now.
What we’re actually going to turn it into is our home office/studio.
In a nutshell, Steevenson is most comfortable playing/watching T.V. in the living room, and now that his toys can all be (neatly) stored in the built-in cabinetry in there, it’s not as big of a deal for that room to act as his hang out space. That, and the fact that *he* doesn’t want to move into the sunroom sealed the deal on not throwing yet another move-related transition his way.
So here’s why it’s going to become our home office/studio:
It keeps me closer to our Sonny when I have to work on our desktop computer during the day (no matter where he is on the first floor. Bungalow Barn included.), and because there’s going to be one big, white wall in there, which will give us the perfect backdrop to record e-classes and how-to videos (something we’re excited to do more of!) and capture photos and videos for my LuLaRoe business.
The round rug has already been removed and we’ve got a rectangular one in it’s place. I’m also looking at desks right now. I wanted to go with something that’s painted white…or has white paint on it…maybe like one of these?
I found those all on the Joss & Main site while searching for inspiration, by the way.
I also like the idea of finding an old farmhouse table and adding corbels to the front side of it:
Attach the corbels where the tabletop meets the front legs and freshen everything up with some crackly white paint milk? That particular table is probably too wide, but you get the idea.
Curious to hear your preference. New desk that looks old (and that already has drawers and keyboard pull out tray) or old farm table (that we could add drawers to) with antique architectural embellishments. It’s fun to think it through! 😀
PS- Since this will also be a photography studio space, we’d like to be able to roll/lift the desk out of the way with ease. Hence, all the photos of (lightweight) desks that look more like tables. 😉
