Dining space turned home office

Monday, September 20, 2010

As mentioned in the previous post, I finally took action in starting my home office over the weekend. I will go ahead and post photos, but it is not quite complete.... yet. I live in a pretty small townhome, which is great since it's just Ava and myself, but I have a LARGE variety of "side projects" which basically means I have a lot of tools and supplies (and CRAP). Therefore, the lack of storage space is the issue here people. My house has an open living/dining room area combination and I never grew up around a formal dining table and all of that; so what I decided was to use the dining space as a home office. Two main goals: a good-sized working area and STORAGE. I can't begin to express how thrilled I am to have the larger chunk of work behind me and now I need a few last, key elements (rug and chair) and accessories. But here is the home office in its current state.

From my previous "home office inspiration" post, you probably notice
my love for green & white (just take a look this blog). But having already
painted my living room a sky blue last year, I just went with mostly white.

Shelves, lamp and file folder boxes from IKEA - desk is a 
hand-me-down (originally a weird gold) that I painted white

Because of the lovely sunlight pouring in, 
these aren't the best photos.

Large vase and filler also from IKEA
You can see the table is pretty bare and there's
an obvious need for a rug and chair.

One last look from the living room. I've used the couch as 
a kind of "divider" between the two spaces.

Amanda - I know! I almost posted a link to your office - it looks really similar! And apparently white office furniture is really difficult to find - thank goodness for IKEA!
