Airstream Office Space Remodel | Front Desk

When we first remodeled our Airstream last year, we only included one work space even though we both work from the road. I’m still unsure how we made that mistake. I suppose I assumed we would both alternate working at coffee shops or from the sofa but for the long run, that just wasn’t going to work. That was a big reason for the second remodel. We incorporated two matching desks made from locally sourced 100 year old tongue and groove reclaimed barnwood and metal. My dad is a talented welder and made the frames for the wood surface to float in. We left the metal raw and vintage-esque and sealed with a clearcoat. The legs are fastened to the floor and the rear of the desk is fastened to the wall.

Here’s a detailed look at the beauty of this barnwood.

This is the location of one of the two desks. It’s nestled between the refrigerator and the full-sized bed. This desk has three legs to allow for the bed cabinets to still be accessible.

I have a pair of matching turquoise chairs. These are actually vintage stadium chairs.

Vintage cheese boxes are awesome for small spaces. They are super skinny and fit almost anywhere. I have a couple of these in the Airstream.

Here’s a wider shot of the details of the desk. The wall is covered in a product called Stikwood. It is real reclaimed wood that is cut 3/16″ thick so it doesn’t add unwanted weight to the trailer. It has an adhesive backing and is extremely easy to apply. It breaks by scoring with a utility knife. No saw required! This color seen here is Golden Oak. I love how it warms up our space.

The hand-painted clutch and keychain are by a lovely artist out of Dallas, Texas. Her work can be found here.
