Our Office/Den

December 12, 2008 at 7:35 pm (Our New House) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

One of the extra bedrooms in the house has been turned into a den.  We added a projector and a futon from my appartment.  Its cozy, but still a work in progress. We do like going in there to watch movies, but it needs some work.  We plan on mounting shelving along the walls right under the ceiling.  We have a sort of music/art theme going, so we would like to set some of our memorabilia on the shelves as a border around the room. 

The closet in the den has become a mini office.  We are both still in school and it comes in handy to have a place to sit at the computer.  Tony built a wall mounted desk and we painted it black. 

From the doorway looking into the den. You can see the futon and the projection shelf. I have a plan for some art to hang along the empty wall.

This is the wall that the futon faces. The bookshelf holds all of our school books. Above that is empty because it is for the projection screen. We have a large frame for the area, but it has yet to be hung. The file cabinet is an old Shaw-Walker that I painted bright red.

 This is the closet office.  Tony made this desk for me.  I used wire to hang pictures.  I'm not sure, but even after editing, it still feels a little cluttered to me.  Any suggestions?

The chair that we are using right now as the desk chair was found in the garbage. I hate to admit that, but it was perfect and I couldn't pass it up! All it needed was a good scrubbing (thank you Magic Eraser!). I thought it was so vintage cute, so I made Tony go swipe it. Gorgeous.
