Remember last summer when I had a crazy empty office because I just felt like I needed to revamp myself for the new direction I was going in – blogging. Here’s what my office used to look like. It was still great. I then showed an update last fall here.
But I got a new vintage hand-painted dresser from England so I had to do an update post. And I also learned you should take interior shots with all natural light.
Oh dear, time to redo every shot of my house this summer. So here we start with the office.
My watercolor illustration was created by the fabulous Inslee. I love her talents!
I put a Pottery Barn curtain rod up, and bought curtains from Target. To be honest, I’m still not sure about the curtains and it’s been over a year. I’m still looking for something else, but it’s at the bottom of my list.
My wonderful Ricki stained this piece for me. So much of my organization and domestic abilities are attributed to Ricki pouring into me and encouraging me.
The desk was my dad’s. It had old yucky wood laminate on the top and I bought a stainless steel top that had adhesive on the back I found years ago from watching an HGTV show. Don’t forget to buy the trimmer, you can’t do without it.
Life is about the relationships you make. Just a few favorite shots and people, more are on my corkboard that I see everyday. I miss my Yun Yun so much (she’s in the white frame).
As always, any questions just ask. If you’ve done a post sharing your space please share!

Diana Elizabeth is done decorating, but she isn’t sure how to style her corkboard, so that’s on the to-do summer list.
