The {Finished} Pinterest Desk

I promised I would post pictures of the finished version of my Pinterest desk the hubby made me, and post I will. But first, if you didn't see the inspiration photo and the beginnings of the construction process, go here!

Secondly, I'd like to apologize for the quality of my photos. I should have taken them during the day for better lighting. But seriously, I'm just not a photographer and it probably wouldn't have made much of a difference :)

So without further ado, here is my lovely, 9ft. Pinterest inspired desk!
To the left of the computer, Steven cut a circular opening to run the cables through. He then attached the surge protector to the bottom of the desk. That way the multiple cords for the computer, lighting, etc. aren't simply lying on the floor. 
Sadly, my office is still pretty sparse, but I have added a few details that I really love.
I found this cute, three tiered bird detail at Michael's. It's great for holding small office supplies like tacks, paper clips, and the all so necessary miniature, glitter clothespins ;)

Things Left To Do:
  • Pick out and hang a curtain for the office window
  • Buy a filling cabinet with lock for important documents
  • Build a shelving unit on the wall opposite the desk (I'm thinking something like this)
  • Hang the cork board
  • Find decor for the office walls
