  1. Every time I see a cute office I want to slap myself real hard. Mine is such a mess and I just need some motivation to start. It definitely looks more efficient now. And cute which is even more important.

  2. Indeed. You are inspiring me to do mine. Like Sherry's mine is a pigsty. I'm always apologizing when client's come over. So embarrassing!

    Yours look fab.

  27. Hi - I'm not sure you'll even see this so far after the fact, but I absolutely LOVE this desk and want to replicate it exactly in my office. But - I'm having a little trouble figuring the dimensions - the longest countertop I see in Ikea is ~97" but surely the one you used is longer, you have 3 filing cabinets and plenty of chair/leg room underneath. How long is your countertop? Or maybe you used 2? Thanks so much - I really love this!!
