The Office Reveal

I am raising my hand and putting my hand on a Bible – I swear that I will be content and not drastically change my office space for at least a few years. Benjamin said five, but I’m going to say a few, because few just means more than one, so at least two years. *wink* I also said drastically, but taking a look around there’s not much I can change now that a giant couch the size of a twin bed is in my office, it’s not going anywhere.

So what happened to the new office since last year’s office update?

  1. New skylight with beams
  2. New office curtains from Serena & Lily
  3. New paint on the walls – subtle gray by Sherwin-Williams
  4. Hung the 1934 family heirloom quit on the wall
  5. New office couch that I can nap on
  6. One horrific yet amazing DIY IKEA hack

I spy¬†Freely¬†subscription boxes, do you see them? Here’s the updated view from the living room which I think now looks seamless with the decor.

I love the light in the room, the subtle gray by Sherwin Williams opposed to my butter yellow walls, and using a dining room table which served as my sewing and craft table (also collected junk) as my main office desk. Do you like my computer screen saver? It’s a photo I took in Northern Ireland, it needs to be sold as stock photograph I think.

I also moved the desk to the prime location in the room, by the window which is what I always wanted.

I’m still in the middle of styling my bookcase and I want a new office chair. I bought a chair cover but it didn’t fit so I’m considering sewing my own once I can commit to a fabric. I would be OK with a pink chair, just not sure if I’m crazy about the print, but from far away, like a Monet, it looks great, but up close, total mess. But for now, I’ll be content because the chair is so comfy.

Now onto the shelving behind the closet doors – there’s a Container Store opening up down the street from my house! Use code TCSLOVE online or in-stores and get 15% off your order, click here. I’m a sucker for the acrylic organizers.

It feels so nice to be finally done, though I have a few issues with sewing space…so that might have to be addressed later!
