These past few weeks have been pretty busy for both Ned and I. After 2 years of running my own business and freelancing I’m starting to look for a full-time gig again. For Ned, after over 10 years of working at Space150, the past 2 years spent being the Creative Director, he’s decided to leave and start out on his own. It’ll be a big transition so I wanted to do something for him to make it a little easier. His last day was Friday so for the past few days I have been re-organizing our office to make room for him (aka clearing out all my junk). The first big step in this was to get a new work table, something substantial, durable….and cheap.
I wanted something that would match the wood work table I’ve been using since they’ll be in the same space. I picked up the supplies below and although I knew it would be sturdy, I honestly wasn’t sure how pretty it was going to be. It’s pretty minimal/industrial but I’m really loving the end result. I used a dark walnut stain and a semi-gloss varnish just to give it a little shine. The door that we used for the top is 80″ x 30″ and fits perfectly against the wall with enough space for 2 chairs. Ned just set up all his stuff on it today and so far, so good!
So now, or at least for the time being, we get to work back-to-back. Naturally, with both of us wearing headphones.
