In our San Francisco one bedroom apartment, we are beyond lucky to have a "bonus room." This little room sits between the kitchen and living space, and the layout is quite quirky, which makes it hard to arrange. On top of the tricky design, we use the room for many things-- working out, painting furniture, playing banjo, displaying our Christmas tree(which I would keep up all year-round if it weren't for James reminding me it's a fire hazard). You get the picture.
Originally, we had an old, wood drafting table in the room to serve as a desk. I liked the look and the idea of having a drafting table, especially when I was drawing and painting more often, but it soon became obvious that the table was too large for the space, and we just didn't need it. So, goodbye to the drafting table and hello to a little desk. We still wanted a place that James could write music at, where I could blog, etc., so I found this petite desk on craigslist and swooped it.
