When Tessa found this desk in the free section of Craigslist, she knew it was meant to come home with her. She said, “I liked the lines of it a lot and the non-existent price tag, if not the color and Hannah Montana stickers.”

She was able to change an unused nook into a whole home office! So smart!

From Tessa:

I’m a Furniture Designer working from home and just moved into a new place with my friends. I’ve found that working in my bedroom was next to impossible and thought that this little nook opposite the front door would make a perfect “home office.” I had a can of white house paint and some brushes so my only purchases were deglosser, paint stripper, and a can of spray paint. Less than $20 and a bit of elbow grease over a weekend for a sweet little home office!

Thank you Tessa!
