The weekend is coming up and I thought it would be a good time get the office set up. I am planning on turning what is now the bike storage room into my office. It is a great room but just in need of some organizing. The container store is having its yearly Elfa Shelves on sale until mid February so I though this is a perfect time to do this.
I had to take care of some things today at the office and wanted to at least measure the room so I could put it on CADD when I was at the office. Well after searching for about an hour I could not find any of the measuring tapes. I know for a fact that we have at least five of them if not more. So I just gave up and went on to do what I had to do.
So after happy hour I got home and started looking again. I figured one of the tapes would appear. Nope, not the case. I really wanted to get this room designed so I could go to The Container Store tomorrow and buy what I needed. Without the tape measure there was not much I could do but I had to get this done today since it was my task for today. Given that I am creative I moved a few things around and then used some string to measure out the size of the table I wanted to use and made sure it fit how I thought it might. Then I drew a sketch to get an idea of what I might need. Now really all I need to do is do the final measure and head on over to the store. Here is my sketch.
Today I learned that there is a reason why Steve buys a tape measure every time we do a job around the house. The damn things disappear. I cannot even blame him since he’s gone. I am absolutely sure I will get back from Ace Hardware with a new tape measure and all the ones we own will appear. I better keep my receipt. I can’t wait to get this done.
Note: Steve if you read this can you comment on where the tape measures are?
