A "Chic and Shabby" office design

I always wanted to create a space in our home for my office in a way that I create space in my booths at the stores where I sell.... this is my chippy, shabby, rusty office design :)

Peeling veneer isn't easy to replace, so I add primitive weathered wood over the top for a quick fix.

The ladder is resting on the door at the other end, and this end is suspended with the heavy rusty chain.


  1. Loving the door without walls, kind of 'Les Nessman" -ish...except I think he had no walls and no door....Am I showing my age?

  2. Found you thru JunkMarket Style. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your little office nook. I have an old French door that I want to incorporate in a similar way that you used your door, but I am "stuck" on the "how to" of it all. Can you please help me, by detailing the hardware and steps you used to stand your door upright and form a "wall"?

    I would greatly appreciate any and all help. Neither my husband nor myself are very savvy with carpentry skills.

  3. What a great desk and fabulous space--very inspiring.

  4. Amazing office! I got to move from my kitchen table now!!

  5. Just found your blog, I am a junker too! love visiting and a new follower, looking forward to seeing your ideas!

  6. I like your office, Tammy. The interior design itself speak of what kind of business you are in, so that your clients won't be confused when they step in to your office.
