Living the Dream

by Melissa {The Dominion Project}

Not to rub it in if you’re reading this at work, but…I love working from home. Especially now that my chair actually fits under my new desk! I actually called Ethan last week to tell him how awesome it was…at home in my shorts & t-shirt, rocking out to my iPod, designing an album, and sitting comfortably at a huge desk!

{Please ignore those awful cords. And the putty on the trim. And anything else ugly you might see.}

Just like the breakfast area, there’s a whole lot that needs to happen in this room (paint the awful yellow trim & replace the carpet…just to name a few). But for now, new furniture is a welcome improvement!

{love the wood top!}

My old home office setup was pretty sad. I was working on a sewing table (with sewing machine still inside) I recently inherited from my grandmother. It now lives in the gameroom, at least until I have a better plan. Check out the door in the background…white trim (new paint) + yellow door (old paint). Real classy. Or a new trend…you pick.

{yes, I am aware of how sad & pathetic this is}

I don’t know how to sew, but I asked my grandmother for her machine in an attempt to learn (first things first). I was completely unaware the machine came with its own piece of furniture. At least it gave me a place to put my computer for the last 9 months (I can’t believe it’s been that long!) Now that the machine is freed up, anyone want to teach me to sew?

  1. LOVE the new desk!! Jealous that you are out of an apartment! I need to be rescued!! :)

  2. Great looking table! it’s actually on sale right now on the foundary. Is the table really 36″ in height? That might be a little high for a dining table huh?

    • Hi Dave,
      I think the dimensions on The Foundary website are a little off…mine is 71″H x 35″W x 30″H. The listing right now reads the same as when I bought it, so I’m pretty sure it’s the same table!

      I’m kind of surprised it’s being sold as a “dining table.” If you look at the ends, there’s no overhang, so end chairs won’t really fit (the legs will hit the metal base). And at 71″ long, I think you’ll only be able to fit two people comfortably on each side (3 if they’re real skinny!!) So I guess if you’re just looking to seat 4, it would be a good fit.

      Hope that helps. Let me know if you decide to buy it – looks like there’s only one left! :)
