filling the void with shelving

after trying unsuccessfully to find a comfortable position on the couch with my laptop last night, i decided i needed a desk.

of course i have a desk. but it’s boring, and hails from a time when i had a desktop computer, and i had to glue myself to said desk in order to get my school work done. getting a laptop freed me from the desk, and when i moved into this apartment i vowed never to put it together.

and so it came to pass, on the day after thanksgiving, that i went out in search of a desk. but after storehouse, staples, target, ecko, pier one, linens n’ things, world market, and organized living, i found no desk. only shelving. lots and lots of it.

black wire shelving for my bedroom closet. heavy duty plastic shelving for my ‘utility’ closet. two cherry fold-down shelves for the books on the floor in the room that would be my home office. and i still need more! like shelving for my coat closet. and some shelving for my bedroom, cause–it turns out–i just can’t get enough.

maybe you could get a fold-out shelf against a wall to act like a desk when you need a surface to set your laptop on?

perhaps it’s time for an ikea trip… only four hours away and full of fantastically cool cheap furniture

i considered going on sunday, but spent most of that day cleaning and fixing things. and i’m still not done. but i think i got pretty much all the solutions for modern living that i need for a while. basically lots of chairs and shelves.

STAY AWAY FROM THE IKEA. I HAVE NO MONEY FOR FOOD.
