You may remember how I was able to set up my office at the previous house for free!
Well this time it wasn't done for free but, it was done
very inexpensively and I love it!
So, please c'mon in.
This room sits to the right of the front door. It has double glass doors that keep the room bright and open. A plus is that when I am working in here I don't feel closed off from the rest of the house. It is also a much larger room giving me more room to get my craft on!
One thing you may notice is the wall color.
In real life it is a pinkish lavender. The previous owners of the home did foster care and this room was used as a little girls bedroom. The first thing I did was take down all of the Tinker Bell/ Butterfly/ Princess stickers that covered every wall.
Not that there is anything wrong with Tinker Bell/ Butterfly/ Princess stickers, they just aren't my style.
I've just got to say, I love Ikea for office furniture! The 4x4 Expedit bookcase is one of Ikea's best sellers for a good reason in my opinion!
You will notice a couple of new pieces. We purchased two Malm 4-drawer dressers and put one on each side of the Expedit.
This room does not have a closet so, I desperately needed more storage and these deep drawers are the perfect answer!
On the right I have stored some decor items while the
left one holds my craft supplies.
I like the extra top surface space too for display or, to set my craft paper on as I work.
At the back of the office I have my craft table. Check out that sweet clock!
That was also a find at Ikea. Once we get the room painted a more neutral color I think the clock will really pop!
I kept my desk area pretty much the same as in the past house.
The nicest part is, I can sit here and be able to look out into the dining room whereas before, I had to turn to be able to see out a window.
It just feels so much more open and airy.
See what I mean? (oops, there's Max, heading to the kitchen LOL).
Oh and that secretary in the entry will be replaced with something shorter at some point.
With as bright as this room is, isn't it surprising that there is only one window? The window looks out to the front door.
The roller shade will be replaced with blinds,(update: blinds are now in!) hung using a level (I swear some people don't even try sometimes LOL).
Max has already come in and laid in his bed while I am working, which tells me, this room meets his high standards of comfort as it does mine!
So, there you have it, another room unpacked and set up!
A new room for me to escape to and get my creativity on!
Now, I seriously mean it when I say I am getting the Fall decor set out and I will be sharing that in the next post!
See you soon!
