The Office: Before and After

I mentioned awhile back that I was re-doing my room that I use for an office. I've had one of those old metal office desks for over the last twenty years. I took the top off a wooden desk and used it on the metal desk. The way I had everything set up and the mess it gave me very little room. One day I was sitting at the desk and realized I wanted a new one and to clean up the mess I had accumulated over the years. So I went out and started buying things. The new desk was under seventy dollars so I think I got a good deal on it. This is the before pics:

The after pics. The shelf unit in the back I actually built. And anyone that knows my capability with a hammer and saw will realize how unusual that is. The new desk gets everything right there under the desk, I was even able to put my turntable there. The computer towers fit right alongside the left side. I didn't take a picture of them but I cleaned out the file cabinets and replaced them with two smaller hanging file folder carts. I couldn't believe the stuff I had kept in those old file cabinets. Tons of papers, almost literally I'm afraid. And one of the best things, which is still kind of hard to tell in these pictures is that I can actually walk around in the room now. I have space on both sides of the desk and Buffy can even come lay next to me while I type.
