Hey Friends !!
So the day is finally here ! It’s my office reveal day and I am so excited !! We recently moved into a new house, well gently used home, but new to us home and we love it !
Speaking of home, I will be keeping a diary of the updates and changes we make to our house on the blog ! I hope you will join us ( Mr. Does A Bunch and myself !) in making decisions on home stuff !! I’m entitling it She Does A Bunch Home Diaries ! Here is the first install in our home diary … ding, ding, ding… my home office ! Complete with all its girly goodness lol !! I had a design for my office and I knew what I wanted to have in my space even before we moved. I knew my home office had to be clean and modern, but warm, girly and most of all chic, but still be functional. A space that I would love being in, as well as work in. I will spend a lot of hours in my home office, so I wanted it to be easy on the eyes ! So I hope that you will enjoy this little tour !
So when we moved in, I noticed that there was a sturdy desk that had metal silver legs on it. I had recently given my daughter my old desk, so I was definitely in need of a new one ! Well this one was in excellent condition! So instead of me running out and purchasing a new desk, I decided to give this one a little refresh.
I spray painted the legs ! Everything is better with GOLD and voilà I have a new desk !! This desk is just big enough for me to work on, but if it gets cluttered, it leaves me no choice, but to clean it !
I knew that I would need a lot of storage space for books, catalogues and just my planning and office supplies period. I have a lot of stuff ! I discovered these amazing and inexpensive, but sturdy cubbies from Target.
I knew that I wanted the cubes to be the place where I housed the majority of my things. I love the versatility of them !! I am able to store all of my books, binders and cute and girly boxes. I may or may not be a little obsessed with them and want them all in my office lol !!
So I am a firm believer in a command station! I’ve always had one for my family as a central hub for everything. School papers, lunch menus etc. So I thought it was only fitting for me to have one in my office also. The command station that I have in my office is used for keeping appointments written down and on a big board. That way I won’t forget them! That means any meetings or deadlines that I may have coming or any appointments that the kids or my husband may have, They are there in my face ! I will also be using one of the boards as a blogging calendar as well.
Below the command center, I knew I wanted something to house my printer and any additional notebooks or files that I have, so I purchased another set of cubbies !! Man I love those things !
I love gallery walls as I’m sure you do also! I wanted the gallery wall to be the backdrop for my desk, but to also serve as the focal piece in my office. When you walk in our house, my office is the first room you hit while walking down the hall, so it had to be amazing !! Most of the wall art I found at Hobby Lobby.
I also used some of the MAMBI gallery wall art prints and framed them and there you go… instant goodness !
For the rest of the décor I knew I needed something that was functional and cute!! You know that’s my main thing ! So I just used chic storage boxes with pops of color.
I believe that really brought the room to life !
Along with my gold gumball machine, glittery notebooks and my Happy Planners, this made for a perfect home office for me.
More desk goodies !!
Everything I need is readily accessible and I have room enough to have a small area set up for photography. All in all this was a win for me ! Although I am still waiting to change something’s such as the light fixture and paint, but for now it works! I’ve got to get to work and those are minor changes !! Oh and the cute chair you see here, came from Home Goods, but since writing this post, I have given it to Jasmine, so I am on the hunt for another one lol !!!
This office means so many things to me and is most definitely a testament to God’s faithfulness !!! I’ll share more on that later !
For now, what do you think about my space? I’d love to hear from you !!
Until next time…
