A vintage door purchased by interior decorator Victoria Lesser marks the entrance to the home office. The door, stripped down to the original paint, was waxed, edge-banded in reclaimed barn wood and outfitted with a frosted-glass pane.

Online voters determined the function of this second-floor bonus room, a cozy space tucked inside Blog Cabin's media room.

The office desk was fashioned from old floor joists, planed and biscuit-joined. The top was then attached to adjustable cast-iron legs and coated in a clear furniture wax.

Chalkboard paint turns an office wall into a message station. Wall-mounted racks, crafted from delivery pallets, keep writing pads, folders and important papers close at hand.

A solar tube infuses the space with natural light. Old wire crates become an additional storage cubicle.

A tribal-print cotton rug anchors the space and delivers the room's pops of color.

Tabletop appointments include an eclectic desk lamp assembled from a car carburetor, wheels, cloth cord and an industrial cage. An Edison-style light bulb completes the functional art piece.

A new laptop computer awaits the winner of Blog Cabin 2012. Other tabletop accessories include an autographed photo of the Mega Dens team as well as an artisan-crafted business card holder.

A printer and second chalkboard wall accommodate the telecommuter. Cozy touches include a vintage rocking chair, topped with a hand-hooked pillow.

An old tractor seat, discovered in Blog Cabin's barn, forms the seat for a one-of-a-kind desk stool.

A neutral wall shade, selected by online voters, allows custom furnishings and accessories to pop. The vaulted attic ceiling extends the room's visual appeal.
