A Tidy Musician's Desk

A Tidy Musician's Desk

When musician, sketcher and writer of words from I Am Cheapskate decided to toss out his iMac for a new MacBook Pro, it was an opportunity to kill all the clutter that had once plagued his desk and replace it with a gleaming white space optimized for listening and doodling. Click on through to see what lies beneath!

Aside from the fabulously organized row of speaker, laptop, speaker, lamp and artwork by Jez Burrows, we also love the hidden shelf that hides the necessary wires and amp for the monitor speakers.

Keeping the bass and guitar amp out of sight and tucked under the desk also keeps the room from looking like just another college student dorm room and more of a personalized, curated space made specifically for the individual residing in it.

Oh, and the beautiful skinny wall shelf that holds books, tech accessories, cameras, and more? Now that's ace, baby.

You can check out the rest of his new desk setup over at his Flickr over here.
