A DOUBLE DUTY NIGHTSTAND DESK
When we picked the furniture for our guest room years ago, rather than matching nightstands on each side of the bed, we opted instead for one nightstand and one small desk. I wanted our guests to have a comfortable place to write or set up their computer.
How to Create a Home Office in a Small Space: Nightstand Desk Bedroom Office Ideas
I’m so thankful for the ability to work from home and for the flexibility it gives me to balance my business and family life… but sometimes that balancing act results in things getting a bit mixed up. I really needed a solution to prevent my blog and client paperwork from getting mixed in with all of our family mail and papers, and to keep my business deadlines separate from our family calendar. And I really needed to get my butt off the couch so that I could get my work done more efficiently in the limited hours I have to myself.
Since guests only visit once in a while, I realized there was no reason I couldn’t claim the desk in the guest room as my own the rest of the time. I partnered with my friends at The Container Store to create a super stylish and functional command center for my business, complete with ample space for all my files, notebooks, office supplies, and even a dry erase calendar. Best of all, it looks stylish enough that when guests visit, they won’t feel like they are staying in an office!
