Room Crashing – Functional Office
It is that time to crash another room. Last week, we saw the room Christina put together for her oldest son. This week, Leah from Behind the Stone Wall is going to let us take a peek into her office. I like this post because it showcases how as room came together using existing furniture and updated with just a few minimal cost changes. So let’s take a look…
When we first moved into our house, the office became a bit of a catch-all. Then the Little Man came along. And things in our office went from cluttered to down-right clogged. Something HAD to be done. So after our week long overhaul on the office, I wanted to share a few Before and After’s. Considering that I really didn’t do much painting, it took a looooooooooooooong time to complete. But that’s life with a baby…in two hour increments, anything can take you longer! (Wink!) And what we have now is so much more user friendly and, let’s just say, happy.
A few before’s:
(Yes, our dog has his own chair…doesn’t yours?)
Part of me dies inside when I look at this before. It’s so horrible.
Next to Techy’s desk is my chair and $7 Ikea table, piled high with crafting scraps, from the wreath.
And yes, we are the ONLY parents in the world who still use a pack n play as a playpen. Little man seriously gets some play on in that thing. (He would have to in THIS office. I mean, seriously, it was almost dangerous for me to be in that place, let alone the baby!)
So without further ado, drum roll please…
