Home Office

DIY easy home office or child's desk
I saw this desk on pinterest and immediately thought it would be a great project for a DIY Divas workshop. The Divas completed the desk today and I though it might be nice to share the project with you. Make this desk for a home office or for a child's bedroom.
Colourful and unique business cards

Modern ideas for home office workspaces
The trend in working from home is growing, as more entrepreneurs set up a home office and savvy employers realise the benefits of letting valuable employees base themselves at home. A small workspace or home office can either be a corner of your lounge, a nook, or a dedicated space. Let's take a look at modern spaces that work.
Create a function home office anywhere in your home
Furniture for a home office, particularly desks, has evolved from being purely functional - to furniture that can be used to set up a home office anywhere in a home. It's stylish, modern and yet still practical as a work space.
A desk with barstools and PAR pine
This desk made using bar stools and PAR pine is a really affordable way to knock up a practical desk for a home office. Even if you don't have a couple of bar stools you can use, or can't find one that will work, the design is not that difficult that you can easily make even the bar stools. Builders Warehouse stock a selection of cut PAR pine that is affordable and easy to work with at home.
Reupholster office chair
This weekend I decided the time had come to reupholster my chair. The foam has gone so flat, it's like sitting on a block of hard wood. Apart from the fact that the foam has gone flat and the fabric is starting to look a bit grungy, there's nothing else wrong with the chair. Rather than fork out for a new chair, I decided to add some new foam padding and fabric and give my old office chair a makeover.
DIY study desk
I have just finished making a desk for a little girl that can also be purposed into a study desk for a child or adult, or a dressing table. This desk / dressing table can be painted in your choice of colour and even distressed if you are looking for a more cottage or shabby chic finish.
