Workplace Upgrade

Happy rainy and windy Monday everyone! It is Monday again and my 30-day challenge is almost up in less than 3 weeks. It had been raining really hard earlier and because of this, our carpenter didn’t come to work today. I’m already starting to accept defeat. The ground floor would be impossible to finish by the first week of July so I guess I would have to settle with fixing the living room/workplace first. So while he’s out, I have to make myself useful…

Here’s the progress so far. See how chaotic everything is? I want clean, well-organized look. I hate clutter especially those bunch of rolled blue prints (sorry, hubby!)

I have to get rid of that useless window which only functions as dust gatherer and turn it into something more useful and visually appealing.

I need storage space, lots of it and a place to hide those messy-looking rolls. So that window is going to be an alcove shelf. Here’s the mood board I created to help me execute my plan.

The desk has to be times two, one for me and one for my husband. We have to use our existing desk though but hey, this is a mood board, right? I can use whatever I like… afterall, our desks are white too. The lamp I just love but I’m not sure if I would still use a lamp. I’m planning to hang 2 pendant lamps instead. The wicker box is another love. It can hold a whole lot of junk and of course I need something else for the blue prints and my paper boards as well.

Are you familiar with that blue chair? Perhaps this would help you recognize it.

Still not? Let me do the honor. You can find this chair in Dimensione under the name ‘Daphne chair’. Yes, the Daphne Osmena herself has a furniture and linen line. When I saw this last Saturday in Dimensione BHS, I knew I have to have it. BUT, there’s no way, I’m repeating it, NO WAY, I’m paying P15,000 for a single chair! Besides, I want the seat to be cushioned. Watch out Daphne, I’m going to make a Michelle Chair. My edge–cushy on the butt!

I don’t why I’m starting to have a thing for victorian style chairs… hmmm…
