Long time Apartment Therapy readers and indie music lovers may recognize Sara Lov's name. We house toured her 500 sq. ft. Los Feliz apartment back in 2009, a space filled with a laid back California vintage charm. She's back on our radar with an impressive DIY project solving a common hurdle for anyone trying to create a beautiful and harmonious home office: where to hide the darn printer!
From Sara's Lov Your Space Blog:
I wanted a piece to keep and hide my printer, paper & scanner. Something that would look clean and good when closed. Since moving into my studio space, I no longer needed a home office, so I took apart the desk I'd made at home and used the beautiful zebra wood top to build this instead. I made a couple shelves with some of the remnants too and if you read the last post well, then you know how that went...
Because she ran out of zebra wood, Sara added some birch plywood on the back and bottom of the console, drilling a 1.5" hole through the back panel for her printer power cable, with a flip up lid top allows for easy access when she needs to access the wi-fi printer. The final touch? Pink spray painted table legs! Sara also mentions she DIY'ed a complementary pair of a desk and work table, with future posts about this projects coming up, which now we eagerly await.
