The Office that took so long to complete.

Ok so in hind sight I should have known the office desk was going to be a beast. We had it planned out too well to start with so of course there was issues. 
1st issue was we were only removing 1/2 of the desk - Jason's half so I was able to continue working downstairs and he was just off to the side. That went out the door in about a minute.
The new desk top was going to be kind of woven in. So that meant that the top had to be built at the same time not one side then the center then my side. So on demo day we went from a slight removal to a major haul it all out and figure the mess out later stance. Not my favorite demo day that's for sure.

This was taken just before Jason realized we needed to take everything out of the office.
I knew I had to clear off the center area so I had done most of that but then my computer had to be taken down. Probably wasn't as big a deal and I made it but I was having trouble loading pictures that day to the blog and so it became a huge deal really quick. 

This was the only desk area left in the room - Jason's work space for the next 4 or so weeks.

Day 1 of the actual build. The wall support is up and the center unit is framed.
I spent the week painting the center base and the wall supports.

June 20,2020
Base painted white and the wall support painted the wall color.

The base supports added to both sides and then painted where will be seen

Started planning the top area of the desk.

June 27,2020
Desk top planned out  - next its to be secured down.

Finally picked out the stain color we liked and got the desk stained and then poly'd 
Had to wait another week to start putting stuff back in the space.
Completely spaced getting pictures of the desk before we started on the hutch areas.

Desk area back and the top hutch started for my side.
Jason's desk all finished

July 20,2020
The side piece was added in but still had to paint the shelves and the whole unit needed to be attached to the 1st unit.
Started working on getting some of my stamps and dies into Evernote. They had been piling up waiting for me to have some time and space to enter them in.

Took a couple of pictures of our progress. this is the finished project. I have a smidge more decorating to do but not sure when that will happen.
My new ink holder is in place very happy to have it now and as seen before my copic markers are up high so Miranda can't use them. I got a Totally Tiffany Embossing station. Have not used it but it looks cool on my desk.
Jason's side and a view of the center area with the baskets I chose

Part of the old desk was cut to make a small desk for Miranda - We are looking at small desk plans for her that will be a bit more stable. She is using my area more then hers so I have to be diligent in cleaning up each day when I leave my desk or she ruins my thing. Lovely right!
Also notice the amount of pens she has by her desk. She still wants to use my copics. 


  1. If you work in an office, you probably spend the vast majority of your time at a desk. And the way your desk is set up will play a big role in determining how you feel while you’re at work and how productive you are. In fact, research suggests effective workplace design may improve job satisfaction and productivity. On the flip side, an unpleasant or disorganized workspace can clutter your mind and impair work performance. Ikcon provides you top quality office desks Brisbane at affordable prices.
