Hate those power outlets under and behind desks and shelves! And there are never enough for all the 'chargables' we seem to accumulate these days!!

Well done copper46. That is beautiful. I love the wire sculptures of the musicians on the top of the bookcase. Where did you get them?

I work from home often and when we moved into our new home I made a conscious effort to set up my workspace to ensure I am comfortable. The number 1 decision for me was to NOT have my desk facing a wall. The main reason for this is so i don’t feel closed in but also when I look up from my screen I have something that I can adjust and work my eyes to that is not a wall.
I have avoided the standard boring desks you get from office furniture stores and have tried to inject personality into my space. My next task is to find a beautiful and ergonomically correct chair and then paint paint paint!!
Good tips in here - especially the PowerPoints in the drawer. Given my hubby is an electrician I now have yet another job for him to do ;-)
