My desk is great- it’s made from a door we took off one of the frames in the house, it’s huge and (my most favorite part) it faces the window. Some people prefer not to face a window because of glare and distraction, but I say bring. it. on. I love having things to gaze at while I’m bored and working and I love the light, especially in the morning (when I usually blog before heading to work).
There’s only one problem with my little arrangement- there’s no where for me to post notes and lists on the wall in front of my desk. I tried adding strings with cards pinned to them on either side of the windows to alleviate this problem, but while I love this, it’s purely decorative and doesn’t help with posting reminders and more utilitarian-type notes.
It occurred to me this week I didn’t need a full-blown cork board- I could buy cork squares, cut them to the width of the wood strip between my two windows and stick them to the wall to create a surface for pinning. Hooray!
