Functional desks and workstations

drawing table

Remember this corner in our house which hubby converted into a drawing room for our daughter? It was useful to our daughter who loves to draw until she became busy with studies. Of late, she devotes much of her time to doing her thesis project in animation. Daughter still loves to use her pen and paper to draw and would definitely go back to sketching after her project is done. For the meantime, I’m checking on these functional tables at www.musiciansfriend.com/desks-tables-workstations, which could double as drawing or study table for my other child who will be in Grade 11 next year.

Study table

The ever reliable handyman is at it again. With the help of our carpenter neighbor he was able to put up a nice study table for our daughter. The still unpainted table is wide enough to hold her laptop and provide an ample space to draw. The table is made of cheap materials and doesn’t have concealed hinges. It only needs to be painted (like the wall on the background that badly needs a paint job) with a nice paint color to look presentable.

Facelift

For a long while, hubby and I have been planning to do a little renovation at home. We are supposed to start painting the chipped paints on our bedroom wall. The chipped paint makes the wall look dirty. After the prospect of repainting, we will be moving out old stuff to organize and maximize the space. Hubby is more skillful when it comes to arranging furniture so I will leave it up to him. I’m thinking of placing a study corner for my kids. This will entail buying pieces of office furniture like table, chairs and cabinet. The study table should not be too wide or narrow to hold my kids’ things. Finally, our dream to give our house a facelift will be realized. However, we have to delay it a little because we need to prioritize the kids’ tuition. Their school is already accepting enrollees this month.
