  • An Office for Momma and the Mini

    Tables Made for ChildrenIt’s an exciting time in our household. We are preparing to make yet another move, this time way down south to the rolling hills of south Georgia. Although we are filled with anticipation of the unknown, this adventure takes us back to some familiar territory.

    We have again chosen to live on Fort Benning, rather than in one of the surrounding communities. There are several good reasons for our choice, but by doing so we suffer the consequence of moving into a house we have never seen. The only premonition we have of our home for the next two years is Google’s satellite view, maps of the installation, and a floor plan that may or may not be accurate for the particular house we’ve been assigned.

    It’s quite an adventure.

    I promised our youngest son that I would set him up with an office in this house. If the floor plan in my possession rings true, the rooms hold plenty of opportunities for his pint-sized workspace. In fact, I may be able to dedicate a space that can hold both his desk and mine. To be truthful, both of our “desks” are really tables equipped with file holders, storage spaces, and pen cups. I especially love that we have matching rough-cut tables, his Homestead Rough Sawn Child's Table being a shorter and smaller version of mine.

    Stay tuned for updates on the workspace for me and my mini entrepreneur.

  • Log Furniture Gives Kids Comfortable Homework Space

    The right desks will help get homework doneThe arrival of fall means cooler temperatures, changing leaves and the start of a new school year. Returning to school inevitably brings homework, which can be difficult for kids to tackle until they’ve gotten into the swing of their new schedules. However, if you give kids a place to sit and study quietly after school, completing daily assignments may not seem so daunting.

    Kid-friendly desks such as the Aspen Estate Dark Aspen Log Student Desk provide just enough space for spreading out books and papers. Dark log legs support a solid aspen top and a set of three drawers made to store files and supplies. Smooth, full-extension glides rated at 75lbs. ensure that each drawer will be able to hold everything your child needs when doing homework. Pencils, pens, notebooks and calculators fit perfectly in the two small top drawers; the lower drawer can be used to organize past assignments.

    Hand-peeling boosts the appearance of log furniture by leaving behind bits of bark that accentuate the wood underneath. These dark accents enhance the naturally light color of aspen sapwood and heartwood, creating an eye-catching contrast for your cabin decor. Add a coordinating side chair or arm chair for extra style. Either type of chair provides a comfortable place for kids to sit and work and contributes something special to your overall home design.

    The properties of the wood are what makes aspen furniture a good choice for kids and teens. Aspen has a particular toughness that is reinforced by naturally occurring oils that help it resist damage. Clear lacquer finish gives the Aspen Estate desk more protection and makes it much easier to clean. This is especially important if your kids like to eat or drink while doing homework. Log furniture represents a big investment, and you want it to stay beautiful throughout your child’s school career and beyond.

    It might take a few weeks for the kids to get used to school again, but a study area equipped with reliable log furniture can help get them back in the swing.

    For only $749.00, you can have your very own Aspen Estate Dark Aspen Log Student Desk.

  • Work From Home in Style With Barnwood Furniture

    Reliable desks for the home officeEvery home office has good points and bad points. Having office space in your house may allow you to work from home, but doing so requires self-discipline and the ability to budget your time between chores and work. If you have a job outside the home, you can use your home office to complete projects or telecommute if need be. These also require you to avoid distractions and stay on task, so it’s important for your home office to be both efficient and comfortable.

    A desk is the central part of any home office. You should choose one that meets the needs of the work you do most often. For a job that requires mostly paperwork, a solid writing desk does the trick. Built from reclaimed Red Oak planks, the Cottage Barnwood 2 Drawer Writing Desk features the beauty and strength of barnwood furniture in a desk that takes up less space than many modern models. At 50” in length, this desk is perfect for sorting through mail, reading files or using a laptop computer. The solid wood top provides a sturdy work surface for all your daily tasks.

    Staying organized is another essential part of working at home. In the Cottage Barnwood Writing Desk, you’ll find two inset dovetail drawers that open on full-extension ball bearing glides. Rated at 100lbs. per drawer, these glides will support anything that needs storing. Keeping your office supplies, writing instruments and important papers close at hand helps you stay on task throughout the day.

    Since some work can take longer than expected, you should have a desk that you don’t mind sitting at for most of the day. The Cottage Barnwood desk can be customized to match other furniture in the office and to fit your personal tastes. Choose from barnwood or hickory legs to change the look of the desk, then have the whole piece preserved with either clear or Antique Oak finish. Whatever style you decide on, you’ll get a sturdy, reliable desk with the unique personality you’d expect from log furniture.
