Last year, I spent some time trying to create a home office where I could write. I had a big desk. I got a new office chair. Then I went to the coffee shop all the time. It slowly dawned on me – I hate desks. I hate office chairs.
So, I‘ve set out to create a more ideal writing space for myself.
Here is the before and after.
Walking in I already didn’t want to be there. All I could see was dog kennels.
Look at that stupid chair that makes you sit upright at the stupid desk.
But check out the rocking Hong Kong Fooey action figure. I’m keeping that.
Too many books. Too many toys. Not enough shelves.
All in all a big collective pile of I don’t want to work in here.
Now, I’m greeted by robots and guitars. Much better.
And note the new ceiling fan. Keeps the dog smell way down.
Big comfy couch (but not too comfy). Nice height appropriate ottoman.
This is how man was meant to sit. Not like in a stupid chair. I’ve also added an
old bass amp as an end table and some art on the walls.
More shelves mean I can now buy more toys. Yay!
I truly believe any great space should have inaccessible books.
Also, they help hold up the Hulk figures.
Okay, I still need a stand for the electronics and the printer.
So far, everything is working out great.
I’ve always been fascinated by writing spaces.
