When Weston moved in, I began renting office space, so we wouldn't be too cramped for space at home. However, after a year of renting (in three different locations), I decided that I'd rather save the money and work from home again, especially since he's rarely here during the week. After two months of using the dining table as my "desk," we decided to look for a piece of furniture that could act as my workspace.
I found this little oak secretary on Craigslist for $200. We had to drive up to Greenwich, CT to get it, but it was well-worth the trip. I'm thrilled to have a workspace that I can close up when company comes over, and it's nice to have a "real" piece of furniture, not just something from IKEA. I'm still using a dining chair as a desk chair, but that's fine by me.
Oh, and the amazing painting over my desk? It was the best wedding gift we received. It is a painting by my grandfather, which my parents generously gave to us as our gift from them (after I not-so-subtly asked for one). Every time I look at it, I am thrilled to have it in my home. Thank you again for the amazing gift Mom and Dad!
