An enclosed back porch offers the perfect spot for an alcove desk, out of the way but still close by.
This underused end of a narrow back porch, is just off the kitchen as so many are. It was cleverly and inexpensively turned into an office by adding an alcove desk simply by fitting in a desk top and shelving. Note that the clapboard walls were simply left in place as the wood is handy for mounting. Placing shelves higher than the norm creates more space overhead and helps avoid heads getting bumped. Clip boards, covered boxes and a framed magnet board help keep things organized. The gathered fabric skirt adds pattern and color while concealing messier storage. The vintage glass acorn ight fixture oozes charm and large windows offer plenty of natural light and views each season – a lovely excuse to take a break just by swiveling around in the desk chair.
