What is the point of having two separate areas of books in one small house, one set of bookshelves in the office (appropriate location) and the other set in the dining room (less appropriate place)? That is the question driving one of our top projects planned for 2017: creating one full wall unit of books that will include a desk in the office.
It’s becoming a running joke in our house – well, he would say it’s more of an aggravation or a disturbance in the force – that whenever I have too much time on my hands or he’s out of town, I tinker, move things around, redecorate, spend money on home stuff…you get it. Within five minutes of Daniel driving off this morning for a weekend away, I was at it.
Remember the office, the one that we turned into an Amazonian rain forest? Nothing has changed in that regard, but the room just isn’t finished, which means it takes up mental space and I have to think of ways to finish it.
