Workspace of the Week: Paper processing

This week’s Workspace of the Week is Inklore’s at-home business office:

This space could use a little cable management, but otherwise it is a really well-organized office. I particularly like how the two clipboards that (I assume) are used frequently are extremely accessible. The desk legs do double duty as filing cabinets, which is utilitarian and a nice design element. The other side of the office is where Inklore does her print making and sewing that she sells on Etsy (the pillow on the chair is one of hers). The side of the room we’ve featured here is where she does her order fulfillment and pencil pushing. Two offices in one space makes a great deal of sense and definitely keeps things organized. Thank you, Inklore, for your submission to our Flickr pool.

    I like it when offices are pretty AND functional.
    Any idea where that desk is from? I could really use a desk with some actual storage space.

    @Loren: It looks similar to (but not exactly like) Pottery Barn’s Bedford collection:

    I love the clipboards, too.

    You can “make” a desk like this if you can find two matching file cabinets. Once you have the file cabinets pick up a piece of wood of the desired length at the hardware store. If you don’t have a saw at home, ask them to cut the piece to length (I’ve had good luck with this, free too!). Paint and set across the file cabinet. I had a desk like this that spanned the length of the wall in my college apartment. The surface space was wonderful! …and I set it up so the surface of the desk extended past the drawers, which made a good place to stick my soccer bag, ball and related stuff.

    “desk legs do double duty as filing cabinets”? Isn’t this just a desk with drawers?
