It is finally time for my home office reveal. Life has been crazy, so it took almost a year to to complete it, but it is completly worth it.
As you know if you read my before post, my new office is vast improvement from my original space. Click here to see the before post.
The big reveal
I wanted to create a space that was a bit more girly than the rest of our house. It is a space that truly reflect my vibe but still has spaces for all of my boys.
On the wall by the door I have a comfy couch that my mom gave to me:) Thank you mama. It is from wayfair.com and is available here . It is a nice place for the boys to come up and visit or hang out and read a book or watch their ipads. The color was a bit bright for my original plans, but adding the pop of bright pink to the couch and teal in a few places I think it came together nicely. There is also a fun little nook over by the window that I have turned into JJ’s special little project nook. It is a spot where he can come up and do his homework or work on a project. Right now he is working on a perler beed project.
My office is upstairs in our attic and the stairs are very steep, so I wanted to have a nice frig and Kurig so I did not have to run up and down the stairs for coffee, water or snacks.
The lost white board saga
I had seen a great gold framed white board at Michaels back in Spring but is was $99, which was way more than I wanted to spend. Besides, everything eveltually goes on Sale for 40% to 50% off, plus they have those 20% off including sale items coupons. Well, of course when the perfect sale hit, I raced down to Michaels after work to pick up my perfect white board. Arriving at the store all ready to buy my white board I walked over to where was supposed to be and it was gone! I called all of the nearby Michaels stores and they were all sold out. No one had one as perfect as that one. I know it was totally a first world problem, but I was a bit bummed that I couldn’t have that one. One night after the munchkin was in bed, I deceide to run over to our local Home Goods store to see if they had gotten any new white boards in. I walked all the way to the back and there it was, my white board from Michaels for only $29.95!!!! I love how it looks with the rest of my decor. My 3 clocks help me keep track of what time it is for my global reps.
All in all I am so happy with how my office turned out. It is a restful retreat and a great place to work from home for corportate job or spend some me time working on my own projects.
