Ok folks. Since the last time I posted about the desk we were able to cross a few things off the punch list.
2. New rug.
3. Final trim in footwells. 4. Secure top to cabinets.
5. Hide wiring as best as possible.
6. Hang wonderful decorative things on the wall.
50% of them down. Not bad right? The item that requires the most excitement is the chairs. Beth and I had been looking at a number of chairs both online and in local stores. We were trying to find something reasonably priced but looked great. We sat in some Pottery Barn chairs that looked great online, but didn’t feel so great on our rears. We were sort of in a holding pattern for a while until a lightbulb came on it Beth’s head…her Dad works for a company that sells amazing office furniture by designers like Herman Miller and Eames… so she inquired as to what they had. In an unusual stroke of good luck, there was an order screw up and it was possible we’d be able to get our hands on two chairs…and boy did Beth’s Dad deliver…
We got two matching grey (I know the fabric looks black here) Herman Miller Aeron chairs. My God are they comfortable. Oddly enough…they match the rug…maybe that’s staying for now?
Here’s another shot:
Nothing is really wired up yet and we still only have one working computer between the two of us (not counting our work laptops) so we haven’t really furnished the office per say. The chairs were a big step in the right direction though. Huge thanks to my soon to be Father-in-Law for the hook-up. In this picture you can also see I got the footwell trim more to my liking. You can’t see the top piece but the composition is as follows:
Quarter round + beadboard + 7 1/4″ baseboard + quarter round on the floor. I caulked the sides and along the baseboard and like the look. Makes it look more like a built-in. So now we just need to hide the wires and hang decorations…stay tuned. Hopefully have some final pictures soon.
Our new mattress came this past Saturday and the new bedroom set came Wednesday as I worked from home. More on that later.
