Here it is!
My home office!
My office definitely doesn’t have a “designer’s touch” because, let’s face it, I’m no interior designer by any stretch of the imagination, but I am really happy with my new work space.
It’s simple, bright, efficient and it makes me smile.
It’s the only room in the house that I felt like I could make as girly and “cluttered” as I wanted to because it’s a space that’s basically all mine since I am the only one who uses it day in and day out for hours on end.
Some of my favorite things include…
The antique bucket pictured above that came from my grandma’s house, sitting on a yellow dining tray that was a wedding gift from one of my best friends and bridesmaids, Leah. (You may see a recap of her wedding here.)
And this birdcage that served as a card collector on our wedding day!
I also love this neat race medal display that I got as a Christmas gift last year.
Oh and my desktop background is pretty darn cute, too.
The yellow cart to the right of my desk was one of my first DIY home décor projects when I graduated from college. I bought the wooden cart from a garage sale and spray painted it yellow.
All of the office furniture is from IKEA, except for my chair, the yellow cart and mini yellow table by the window.
I am using a quilt made of old sorority t-shirts as a chair cushion. The quilt is very similar to the one we gave my friend Leah at her bachelorette party.
Another fun DIY project in my home office is the framed fabric by the bookcase, which I plan to used as a dry erase board with a list of my daily to-dos.
One guess where I got that idea. Yup, Pinterest. That site is a goldmine, I’m telling you.
The fabric in the frame is actually leftover damask fabric from our wedding escort boards.
Again, it’s definitely not the home office of a design professional by any means, but I know I love seeing the homes of other bloggers and figured you guys might enjoy a sneak peak into my workspace.
The next big project is finishing off our living room!
