Office Style-Desk On A Budget

You may not have the room or budget for a home office, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have one. With a little creativity you can find the space and turn an inexpensive desk into a great looking piece of furniture.

Swap out your sofa table for a desk, then add desk accessories, a lamp and chair that complement your existing furniture. In this instance I avoided a standard desk lamp and chair as I wanted this office area to look like part of the room.

Next I changed the knob that came with the desk.  I purchased this knob from Hobby Lobby, who has a large selection.  You can also find great knobs at Lowe’s and Home Depot.  I completed the look with a tassel, also from Hobby Lobby.

The desk is from Office Depot , it’s the Real Space Writing Desk and retails for $139.99.

Desk accessories and supplies from the See Jane Work collection at Office Depot.

Chair from World Market.

Knob and Tassel from Hobby Lobby.

Quick Tips

Organize Claim Tickets

Whether it's the dry-cleaner, tailor, valet or coat check, I have difficulty finding the right claim ticket at the right time. If I want to get my car, coat, dry-cleaning, or anything else returned to me, I need that number. So I started photographing the tickets with my phone. Then when I can only find a coat check ticket for the valet, I simply pull up the photo and a crisis is averted. Please do verify that a photo will be sufficient to retrieve the item.
