In my real job, the one that pays the bills, I have a tiny little office in the basement of a historic building that has ugly fabric walls, and a mustard yellow plaster column, and a drop ceiling with tiles missing because there’s no air circulation otherwise.
Then there’s the big heave in the middle of the floor that I’ve covered with a carpet remnant.
Still, I have a little dream of creating a stylish space out of the mess.
I’m convinced the key to this dream is a vintage console or credenza, something with lots of storage that is low enough to hang art above it. It would be the perfect focal point for office redo.
The problem is that I’m cheap, especially when I’m considering furniture for my office. I’ve been watching the Indianapolis listings on Craig’s List and stop by vintage and used furniture stores now and then.
