Lately my kitchen table has been doubling as my office. It has been irritating me daily, because, ohmygosh if I have to move the laptops, paperwork, my notebook, camera, etc from the table ONE!MORE!TIME! before dinner I was gonna lose it.
But in this modest size townhouse we make do with what we can. I swear, we have had to utilize every square of inch of this house to make it properly work for this family of four plus a dog. This place felt huge when we bought it, but has shrunk with each addition to the family.
So back to this kitchen-office business.
I've needed a place to put my laptop, house my cords, more drawers and storage for mail/Emeline's craft stuff/my work stuff, and more. So a few months ago while Declan and I were yardsaling we came across this little desk for $15 bucks. Fifteen bucks? Put that sucker in my car, thankyouverymuch.
I had plans to redo it. To repaint it some crazy fun color. But when I FINALLY brought it up to my kitchen on Saturday, I realized I kind of like it like this. Although it's totally possible I'll change my mind and paint it turquoise or something, but we shall see. For NOW--it's staying as is.
It's cute, right? But once I brought it up, I realized this was going to be more of a project then I had anticipated. The entire wall above it needed to become something special...something fun.
Luckily my husband was out for the morning helping his parents move, and the 2 year old was with my parents, because even with just Lucy around, I still felt like I had all the time in the world to make my vision a reality.
After scouring my closets, garage, repurposing old frames, getting my spraypaint on, finding a free printable, making some quick "B" artwork, a quick sticky-gram project, and a little penant banner, I had a little kitchen office area that I'm not only proud of, but makes my heart happy.
Soooo what do we think?
