There is a slim - we're talkin' Spanx on Spanx on Spanx slim - chance I'm going to get to redo my office at work. I'm trying not to get too excited about forces beyond my control. If I can't get my day space redone then maybe it's time to get my home office looking legit. Not that I really use it but I'll FEEL more productive and that's all that really matters.
Either way, there will be some useless paperclips put into a stylish home sometime soon, gawddammit. I must corral the office supplies. Sweet, sweet, useless office supplies...
While looking around for fun office ideas I stumbled across this little desk/nook/bill-paying station and think it's pretty much perfection. Like Wes Anderson's accountant works here. The lighting, the reclaimed wood that's not from a pallet, the mix of art and materials, the industrial tape dispenser, the faux (?) marble top... it's all perfect. Right down to the trash can.
Funnily enough I HAVE a trash can very similar! The can itself is brass but maybe it needs some spray paint...? I dunno, 'live and let live' has always been my philosophy regarding trash receptacles.
I also have a trophy... because I'm a winner! (It was an ironic trophy but I'm still a winner because it has my name on it.)
I'm pretty sure my final space wherever it is won't look anywhere near as cool as this but it's okay. I have that ironic trophy and that's all that really matters.
This space is home of owners of Schoolhouse Electric in Portland. The whole house is great but don't mind me, I'll just be right here making sculptures out of useless paperclips and industrial tape.
Because I'm a winner.
