And now, the room that I spend HOURS upon HOURS in is ... WONDERFUL!
Let's take a trip down memory lane first....here's the before:
The previous owners had it painted a very dark red and had it functioning as a ... honestly, I don't know! Dining room / office / library? We have a 6 person dining room table in the eat in area so for us, since I work from home, we knew an office was what we had to do! SO ... off we went. The main thing I needed was LOTS of work space. I use my computer, I have a professional grade printer, I cut, I have tons of inventory (envelopes, paper, flat mailers, ink, etc) ...
and here we are TODAY! :)
This is my packaging area! : ) Here I cut all invitations, prints when necessary. This big wall was a challenge to decorate! I didn't want a huge gallery wall b/c I wanted some variation and some storage too. SO I decided on these three shelves (from Walmart) and the rest just started geling together.
* canvas: from Hobby Lobby
* shelves and office chairs: Walmart
* bunting: I designed myself and have been considering adding them to the shop! They're SO fun! : )
* candle, accessories: TJMaxx and Target
*set of three office tables: Target
Here's my main desk area. I love that I have a view of the trees when I work. But I knew I needed something to the side of the desk Evan built me (to the side of this picture is a TON of storage ... all my envelopes, paper, etc in two huge storage built ins). SO I decided I would make curtains. I went and bought fabric from Hancock fabrics at first but it was SO expensive ($90!!!!). I then thought "why not just cut a curtain from Target? Then my brilliant husband said, I bet you could do it with one panel! And BAM he was right! $20 later, I had these pretty curtains to the side of the window. I just cut the panel to size and used sewing adhesive. Iron the sides and about 30 minutes later they were ready to be hung! :)
*curtain and rod: Target (I love Target .... a lot)
*trash bins: TJMaxx
*on the other side of the storage, I have my "packaged area" --- all those packages on the right are ready to be mailed out this afternoon and there's my little handy scale on the left. All I did to decorate here is buy clip boards from Walmart and then I printed some of my prints (three of these aren't in the shop yet ... this is an area where I collect ones I want to list and then I can photograph a few at the same time and list them all). It's a little area to highlight Lacey Fields prints and adds so much color!
And there you have it! : ) LOVING my new office!
