Over the past few weeks, I’ve been purchasing and installing some fabuloso IKEA bookcases and a CD cabinet. In essence, I’m finally creating a real home office and organizing my stash of office supplies and books.
Here’s how it looks so far:
The books are arranged by type (work- and school-related books, hardcover fiction, paperback nonfiction, memoirs, writing books, dieting/fitness books, etc.) The doors hide binders, photo albums, office supplies and other not-so-pretty or easy to display items.

The last piece of this home office project is a nice desk from Pottery Barn. One I’ve been wishing and waiting for since, o0hhhh, about the year 2002. Instead, I’ve been working on a tiny, little, awkward “bill payers” desk like this:
Mine looks much more sleek and modern, but it’s essentially a 2-drawer file cabinet with a drop down table. Definitely time for an upgrade, especially as I’ve started blogging and writing more. I need a more comfortable workspace.
Do you have a home office? What do you use it for? Describe it.
