OMG y'all! Look who popped her awesome head back into Offbeat Home & Life to share some of her old school offbeat home goodness — it's Cat Rocketship! She's giving us the low down on floor desks.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of workspaces posts.
Despite the fact that it is a black room, our newly remodeled office/craft room is very bright and fun! I spend a lot of time in this room blogging and doing projects so I wanted it to be a fun place to hang, and I think it's mission accomplished.
Homies, I need help. I have the ugliest desk imaginable. What I can't figure out is… how it made it's way into my house. It was here when I moved in, and even without the unscrewable legs, we can't take it out any of our doors.I need to paint it, style it, anything — but I have to be able to do it inside. Can you homies help me transform this ugly desk?
I run a business from my home, and I often have to meet with clients and collaborators. I've been meeting in coffee shops, but I want to make a change: some meetings require lots of materials or even room to spread out drawings and papers, and I hate lugging this stuff around and then splaying out my work in a cafe. However, I want to make sure I'm projecting a professional persona even when I greet a client at my front door and lead them through the living room to my office. My house is fine — it's neat, though doesn't have a ton of furniture. It just feels strange to invite people to see where I live AND work.
Am I silly to worry about this? Is there anything you can suggest to allay my twinge of weirdness about mixing business and personal worlds?
