House Tour: Home Office
The house tour is wrapping up today in my office. This is the space that I probably spend the most time in so it’s usually the most cluttered. So I left this space for last so I could spend some time tidying up before I photographed it. So here’s a look at my home office that also is my craft room and studio.
When we moved into our house almost four years ago I wanted to reuse some pieces, like the Expedit bookcase, floral storage totes and the curtains, that I had in the home office/guest room in our old apartment.
The desk is constructed out of two long table tops from Ikea that are attached to a long 1″ x 2″ that’s mounted on the wall. I used metal L brackets to connect them. By mounting the table tops to the walls it eliminated the need for additional table legs.
The day we brought Darcy home she immediately followed me into my office and laid down under the desk. Since then, it’s become her favorite spot in the house. I added this cute floral dog bed under the desk, or rather, under her dog house.
The bookcase that nearly everyone owns holds my sewing machine, serger, Silhouette supplies, and my camera bag.
This cute garland from Minted that used the gold heart clips I made hangs over my computer.
The shelves over my desk hold some frequently used items like scissors and straight-pins. The orange storage boxes hold desk items, like paper clips and a stapler.
Since this room is really a bedroom, it has a tiny closet with accordion doors. I removed the hanging bar and installed some shelving to maximize the storage.
These cute hat boxes hold all my paint. My mom got me this huge collection of thread a long time ago. It’s so handy!
I got these fabric storage totes when I went away to college and they are just so pretty and practical to get rid of.
Every Christmas, Kevin gets me some little random tech item. A couple years ago he stumbled upon this wifi radio that gets every NPR station in the country as well as podcasts and Pandora. It was definitely a win! I’m a big NPR fan and I listen it all day while I work. The little gadget sitting on top is a fun digital dashboard that is connected to some of my social accounts. It also displays the weather and the traffic time to the barn. So fun!
