Here it is.
It's also our entry hall.
And my book shelf.
And where IT Guy hangs his hat.
Well, maybe you need more pictures.
Open up the armoire and suddenly the oversized entryway turns into a handy place for me to write. We have a real office, but that's where IT Guy hangs out and has his two (yes, 2) computers. Our real bookshelves are there too but no TV, and I like to watch it while I work. The office is also very messy, so I'll show you that last. Maybe you won't read that far and will still respect me and my housekeeping skills!
I've had this old wardrobe for years and years, way before computers were in every home. It's lived in several rooms, stored many types of items, but I think it's finally found its niche. It already had the storage bins and mirror, but I installed a set of drawer runners, put a piece of plywood between them, and magically, a laptop shelf appeared. The runners allow the computer to be pushed in so that the doors can close at a moment's notice or upon the ringing of the doorbell.
It's handy all right, with plenty of space to store my research, my signed baseball, my Blake Lewis CD, and my stapler. Someday I'll show you what's reflected in the mirror but not today. And yes, that's a cowhide on the wall. (Eventually I'll do a whole week on all the dead things in our house. I bet you just can't wait. The place looks like a Texas bar-b-que restaurant gone mad!)
