MagnifiCuffs Headquarters!

Over the weekend we began the transformation of our third bedroom into a home office/workshop.  Not having office furniture wasn't going to get in our way...there's a perfectly good floor that could be used as a work station.

Phase 1
 
After the 3 yo and I picked up the 5 yo from school on Wednesday we stopped by Staples to get a color print cartridge, large wall calendar and gloves (I can only glue my fingers together so many times!).  I looked through the weekly advertisement and saw a desk for half off.  From $120 to $60.  An L shape!  KISMET! 
 


I bought the desk and called my husband to tell him about the deal.  He and our friend, Adam, who helped with the transformation on Sunday picked up the desk that evening. 

Also speaking of kismet, the night I bought the desk I flipped through a Whole Living (from February 2011...I don't get to read much) and found a diagram of how to Feng Shui your desk.

Yesterday afternoon I put the desk together and we both love the way our new workspace is coming together.  The L shape is perfect because we have a table designated to the admin aspect and then the crafting part of MagnifiCuffs has it's own table too! 

Our sons have shared a room since Sunday and we have high hopes after a couple hiccups the first few nights before the reno was completed. 

Having mom in the office next door last night definitely helped thwart the giggley chats while tossing stuffies between the two of them from their beds.

Below is how the space looks so far! 


2014 is off to a wonderful (and organized) start!

Warmest wishes,
Marcia
