I have beed adjusting to using the white cabinet for my office space. However, its just not a big enough space to store all my
important files stuff. However, what I really find I miss the most is actually sitting down at a desk with all my wonderful supplies surrounding me.
Time for another confession. I love school supplies, and this time of year I am just giddy with the selection and bargains that are abundant in the stores. Its a double score for me! I was a school teacher before having kids, and before that, I loved school. I LOVED picking out my folders and notebooks and pencils and pencil cases ….. I was always envious of the kid who would come to school and show off that cool pen that had the multiple ink colors. You know the one.? You could click the red, blue or green button at the top and then write in the color of your choice. Yeah, didn’t have one, wanted one. Not in the budget. Guess what now, I got one! YAY!!
I laugh! My kids just roll their eyes when I get excited about school supply shopping This year they just told me what they needed. They wouldn’t step foot in a store with me to shop. I guess last year they said I wondered around Staples way too long. This year I ventured out on my own with list in hand and had quite a good time by myself. So much fun stuff to look at. I’m sure I will go back
Getting back to the office space, I have decided to hunt for a desk. I need a desk. I like desks. Desks bring me back to my teaching days and way back to my memories of my desk in my bedroom. I will shop the thrift stores, garage sales, and Craiglists for a bargain.First , I need to get inspired.
After consulting Pintrest, I have an idea of what I am looking for.
Here are some pins I am drawn to: source
I am surly drawn to a fresh, white wood look. I hope I find one that is all set to go, but I’m not opposed to adding some paint to a piece to give it new life. Wish me luck!!
