I’ve just spent a lot of the last few days shopping for new office furniture and building it with the help of my buddy PM. Since I’m now fully self-employed and work 95% of my time at home, I decided to blow a bundle of (tax deductible) cash and refurbish my old office so I’d have the perfect lair to hatch my evil 2011 plans.
I’ve spent many hours cleaning, building, sorting, throwing trash out, fighting wires, tie-wrapping and what not. Now I’m exhausted but too damn excited to go to bed yet… so I decided to share some pics of what my new abode looks like (click images to embiggify).
It started with a simple, glass desk that takes 1/2 the space of my old “L-shaped” press-wood monstrosity.
Then since I’m stuck with the house’s electrical box on the wall to my left, I improvised to recuperate the dead space.
Then I built one of those friends-in-a-box from Ikea, name of Billy and filled him in on my latest projects and blog subjects…
Then, I really needed to find a place to store all those dice, minis and dungeon tiles. Ikea once again rescued me!
Of course, an at-home office would not be complete without a Kids’ art corner. Witness the talent of 7 y.o. Rory, the house’s graphic artist.
Finally, I (well, my wife Alex) added a white shelf over the monitors and I nerdified the whole place with some of my favourites toys…
Now I’m ready to take on a CRAPTON of new challenges.
Happy belated New Year.
