I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.
My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.
However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.
So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".
At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.
Alas, cash flowing farm house renovations and getting out of debt has to take precedence over grownup furniture. More than likely, I will end up surfing Pinterest for inexpensive options which add a more mature feel to my writer's nook.
