Decluttering is good

These are pictures of my ill-functioning office for the past six years. It was frustrating to carve out a work space as there was none to carve out. Cleaning up was just shuffling the clutter around. So here are some more "before" photos.
The old 'teacher's desk' served it purpose ~ years ago. It was a great printer stand.
I was using five different little tables and every one was a different height. How inconvenient.
Now, for the "after" ........ and forever!!
The desk unit below was designed by me and executed by Heritage Furniture ~ a local Amish furniture maker. I was so pleased with the results! Such quality details like dove tailed joints and hand rubbed finish!!

My printer is out of site under the counter on the right side on a pull out drawer. The wood that it's made of is maple with a distressed finish. Thank you Mr. Mast for your great care of workmanship.
