Whew!

Whew! Built two bookshelves, unloaded many of my books onto them. Now I have a nice big desk (albeit with a nightmare of wiring underneath it) and two nice shelves which perfectly fit in with everything. Unfortunately, I am a sucky photographer, so the photos don't nearly do this justice, BUT...


Here's my desk, with the monitor tuned to buzzword (my Windows box) and pixel (the Macintosh powerbook) just running as a spare browser machine and stereo. (The monitor, keyboard/mouse, and speaker system can be swapped between Pixel and Buzzword independently. My cellular phone, printer, and a whole slew of networking stuff can be seen, too. Still, my desk is not that cluttered, thankfully.


Here are the new shelves. The whiteboard was there before, and the shelves fit nicely around it. My musical keyboard now lives up there so it doesn't need to be propped against the wall when not in use, there are lots of nice books, the top shelf of the big bookshelf has a variety of bowls, archaeological fragments, and little lucky shrines on it, and has a light mounted above it. My swords are sitting next to the bookshelves, and I accidentally left the bathroom door slightly open when I took the picture... whups. :/

Anyway, I'm happy... I have many books, and my room is more organized and less cluttered now. Yay!

Beautiful! My kind of organization :)

Where'd you find the desk? I've been wanting to install a corner desk for ages now, but haven't been able to find anything suitable.

P.S. Nice PJs, or whatever those are :)
The desk was from Ikea, just like pretty much all my furniture. :)

And the 'PJs' are a bathrobe.
If my desk were ever that uncluttered, I wouldn't know what to do with myself. Granted, I need some more room on my desk...
I /love/ having that much free room. I can put down lunch or whatever, I can spread out papers I'm working on, things like that, and I have room to put down the keyboard when I want to do music.
That looks great!

What a wonderful office. :)
What I like even more is the windows. The right-hand one looks south, out over a few houses and then down onto Lake Union, to the downtown skyline across the lake, and on a clear day, to Mt. Rainer.

The left-hand window looks east, out over a wooded hillside and houses, and on a clear day you can see the Cascades run the whole horizon!
A great desk, space, AND a view of the mountains/lake?

I'm REALLY jealous now. :)
These pictures, sadly, don't do it remotely justice... I had to take a sharp angle on the one, so that I could get it into focus properly. But you get a basic idea.

East View


South View
Also, alas, my six-year-old digicam doesn't have the resolution to pick up the mountains. Both Mt. Rainer -- to the left of the downtown skyline in the south view -- and the Cascades (all along the horizon in the east view) are visible and lovely today. And the lake's just choppy enough to be all sparkly in the sunlight.
I like!!

And naturally, I love your bathrobe :)
*laugh* The real amusing thing is that the silver bathrobe with dark blue stars and moons -- and the matching dark blue PJs with silver moons and stars -- were a gift from my parents one Christmas, who know absolutely nothing about Firan or Unotians. :)
