Love this thread! Here are some I've saved, too. Maybe this will get me off my butt to actually make our office more than a junk minefield!

Hey Shaun, that looks great! I hope you'll post another shot or two of it when you're all done.

Here are some more, and I think we should put Libraries in this thread too, don't y'all?

I love all the pictures of these offices. Here's a picture of our office area, I had to move the chair out of the way so you could see the desk better.We have it up in the bonus room above the garage, it's a huge room, we also have the theater room in there too.

Oceanna,
You directed me to this thread on my post.

Thank you! Thank you!! I am drooling & wishing my $$ tree would grow:) I can't get off onto my office --- it is truly pitiful & would require lots of built ins to make it wonderful.

Love the doggie at the desk - too cute:) Looks like my Pepper dog...part wheaten terrier /poodle.

Thank you again, for all your time and effort for all the wonderful pictures you provide.

Smiles:)

Well, I've got offices, libraries, sewing rooms, and craft rooms in here. So I may as well throw home theaters in here too.

Here are some inspiration pics I've collected...

Here is an outdoor projection screen home theater:

Scoobyruby, thanks so much for letting me know you enjoy this thread! Yes there are some big buck projects in here, especially the theaters of course. But a lot of things we see can be copied more cheaply with CL finds and elbow grease. :o)

PRACTICAL SUGGESTION:

Use pinterest and post a link here for your board. So much easier than embeding photos to posts, and better for us since we could click on the picture and go to the web page where it came from...

Here is a link that might be useful: pinterest

Help! I can't see most of the pictures but would love to--having a hard time finding home office inspiration pictures! (love seeing them all for inspiration, but specifically know I'm going to do white cabinets in a U-shape--11'X11' room).
THANKS!!

I've been collecting pictures of clever storage and organizing ideas for offices and craft/sewing rooms, so you'll be seeing more of those here. I need all the organizing help I can get!

A mint tin to hold business cards

Easily made on your sewing machine

magnetic board

organize your change

old bread box turned into recharging station

What a brilliant way to label your cords with bread bag clips!

Hi Emagineer,

Thanks again! You are super!!

Hi Maria,

Sorry, I don't understand what you're saying or know how to do that and really don't have the time/inclination/head space to learn that right now -- even if your idea is a good one. This isn't Pinterest, it's just our Gallery. Guess this grandmother is not thoroughly modern! You are always welcome to start your own threads if you like, or add photos to any thread of mine.

Hi Sarah,

Some of the photos -- especially the older (first) ones, have gone blank. That means the site that hosted them dumped them. We have no control over that, sorry.

However, by far most of the photos should be visible to you. They're visible to me and to others so maybe it's your computer? Hard to say since I don't know what you're seeing. I do use a different hosting site than I used to and I think this one is better than the old one about not dumping pictures. Maybe reboot? Don't know what else to suggest.
