Home Office Update + Organization
I've been putting off showing you this space because there a few tiny things that I want to finish up in here still, but at this point, I am bursting at the seams to show you the progress I've made on my home office and all the things I've added to make the space super functional, and pretty stylish, for not a lot of money.
As a reminder - here's where we were before, as of my most recent house tour:
I mean, it functioned alright, but not exactly, and it seriously lacked personality and design.
I used gift cards to purchase some new furniture, moved some existing furniture in, shopped my decor hoard in the basement, labeled a lot, did a couple of projects, got a couple of things from IKEA, and we added a new ceiling fan and painted. And here's where we are now!
The drawers in the closet have been a huge help in keeping all of my craft supplies, sewing supplies, office supplies, and especially all of my gift wrapping supplies (which I shamelessly hoard) corralled and organized.
I'd still really like to get a different office chair that's not an extra dining room chair (I think I like this one), a rug to help anchor the space but I can't find one I love, and we'll eventually put bi-fold closet doors up in both this room and the boys' room. But I'm really happy with the progress this space has made. It feels a lot like me and functions well. I actually almost look forward to paying bills and filing now. Almost.
And just for fun, here's a few before and afters.
