living in a 700 square foot apartment means that every corner of every room needs to function for multiple tasks. my living room serves as my craft space, my sit on my bum and watch tv space and my work on the computer space (not to mention gigi’s play space). having previously owned a lap top, i didn’t have to worry about a designated computer desk, so purchasing my first desktop presented its own challenge. i needed a small desk area in my already cramped living space that had the smallest footprint possible.
in the end, a floating shelf made the most sense. two heavy duty brackets and a closet shelf later, i love my new desk and my cozy nook! by trimming the shelf board with washi tap, it completed the look and added a pop of color to my “desk.” (sidenote: clearly, i need some cord management, sorry for the mess.)
