Often when I feel inspired and want to make collages or doodle, I end up not doing it because I dread cleaning up afterwards. At school, my desk was hardly ever visible because of all the papers and materials spread out on it. I've had the idea of turning this shelf/desk into a workspace for a while, but haven't gotten around to it until today. (After spending the past few days in a horizontal position, I had this enormous burst of energy this afternoon and suddenly got a million things done.) It's smaller than I would like it to be, but it's better than the kitchen table. And now I finally found a good function for this corner of the room. The African bamboo bag underneath holds vintage magazines to cut up, in case you were wondering. I hope I'll spend many hours in this corner this winter. Now all I need is a good lamp.

Jag känner mig ofta sugen på att pyssla och göra collage, men gör det sällan för att jag inte orkar städa upp efteråt. I skolan kunde man knappt skymta mitt skrivbord under alla papper och saker som låg på det. Jag har haft idén länge att göra om den här hyllan/skrivbordet till en arbetsplats men inte fått ändan ur förrän idag. (Efter att ha tillbringat de senaste dagarna i horisontellt läge fick jag idag en riktig energikick och helt plötsligt hade en hel massa saker blivit gjorda.) Helst skulle jag vilja ha en lite större yta att jobba på, men det är i alla fall bättre än köksbordet. Och så hittade jag äntligen en bra funktion för det här hörnet av rummet. Den afrikanska bambuväskan under bordet innehåller mina gamla husmorstidningar som jag klipper i, om ni undrar. Jag hoppas att jag kommer tillbringa många timmar här i vinter. Nu behöver jag bara en bra lampa.

  2. I like that you used the cup noodles container as a pen holder.

    I need to organize my desk as well... I have been such a slob lately.

  6. Perfect! I did the same thing recently in my study, putting aside a little desk for creative projects, so that I didn't have to mess up then clean up my work desk or the kitchen table. I love it, although it doesn't look anywhere near as good as yours. I am inspired.

  9. omg. if I coveted that desk any more than I do right now I'd probably drop dead of covetousness :)

    ergonomics first, though. watch out for small spaces.
