My Office...Finally!

Yay!!! I can't believe it. It's finally D-O-N-E! I want to say a big thank you to the Hubs and his Dad. Without them the office would not be possible!! You guys rock!

I am horrible at before pics. So just imagine this as a completely empty wasted space. It was originally meant for a mudroom but we opted out since it was an upgrade. So for 3+ years this space has been a catch all of well, junk. We have a mac and for the past year we have stored it in various places. Our fave place is our couch and since Malone is extremely active, we figured the couch wasn't the safest place. Enter office idea. I still am on the search for the right file cabinet that I will place to the left of the chair but for now it is perfect. I LOVE it and hope you do too!


Chalkboard wall. The wall says "Favorite Things Party 2011"
but more on that later.

Curtains are from World Market and rug is from Tuesday Morning.
Ghost chair is from TJMaxx and you can see my post about it here.

Teal office supplies from Wal-Mart, who knew?

Mail system from Target. Whew, looks like I need that
file cabinet sooner rather than later. Lamp from Target.

Blogs and Coffee sign from Made by Girl and key rack from Southern Living at Home which I think is now called Willow House?

This office was so much fun and a much needed space in our home. I'm sure I will tweak it as I go but for now it is a perfect place to blog/pinterest stalk and a cheery place to pay the dreaded bills.

Have a great day!

  6. The curtains are beautiful and they really make the space. They are that unexpected element that adds the right amount of color against the black chalk wall.
