Refreshing The Home Office. . .

Reflecting our own personal needs
has been one of the changes taking place in 2020 On Crooked Creek.

This past week,
I spent some much needed time refreshing our Home Office.

Much has changed since we the 2017 switch of the  Guest Room
for the Home Office space. . . including the purchase of a new bookshelf.

2017 brought the need for a two~shelf bookcase 
to hold our 3~ring business binders, dictionary,
thesaurus and educational materials.

In July of 2019,
I attended Stephen Leader Training Course in Dallas, Texas.

Upon returning,
I realized I needed another bookcase to hold all of my educational resources.

Both bookcases were purchased at our local Target;
however, they (purposely) are in different hues.

If, at some time in our near future, we should make a change of location,
one could be placed within another area for another purpose.

An example,
our matching bedside table is now being used as a printer table.
I'm hoping our future Master Bedroom will be large enough
to accommodate both our bedside tables on either side of the bed frame.

Here's an overview of the furniture arrangement
in On Crooked Creek's Home Office as you enter from the East Wing hallway.

The opposite wall, which sets within an alcove,
was the perfect placement for "Mr. Ed's" desk and hutch.

"Mr. Ed's" desk was purchased in the 1970's,
during his Military service years, so that he could work at home.

The hutch portion was made in the 1990's,
by our son while he attended High School Shop Class.

The decorator within me enjoys creating vignettes within the open shelving.

Refreshing On Crooked Creek's Home Office
now reflects our personal needs by allowing both "Mr. Ed" and I
to co~exist within the same space while keeping in our own areas
to accomplish the needs of the day.

Until next time. . .
