I love my office. It makes me happy to be in here. I actually bought this office furniture 7 years ago with most of the money we got from wedding gifts. I had to have it. I had been eyeing it in the Pottery Barn catalog every single time one came in the mail and when we finally got to pick it all up I was beyond excited. It has some where and tear from the years and my children ( the leg supporting the corner desk is covered in BLACK PERMANENT MARKER – I DIED!!!!!) but if a piece needs to be replaced I would have no problem buying this set again.
I have always loved this laundry room From House of Turquoise so when I knew we were going to be moving the kids out of this small 9′ x 9′ bedroom I wanted it to be perfect. People kind of look at me funny when I say I got my inspiration for my office redo from a laundry room but I love it!
Can this laundry room get any cuter????
So on to my office. This is where it all happens. I am in here A LOT. My office is very central to the rest of my house (we have a super small house at 940 sqft) but it was important that I have a space for the business that was in the house since my kids are still very young. I have always love craftsman style homes and while ours is a bungalow in the mountains we still wanted to start giving it the small touches that make it a little more craftsman.
Mike (my wonderful husband) spent one weekend putting up the moulding on the walls. It’s 1 x4 MDF and a bunch of white paint. 🙂 The color on the wall, I am kicking my self for letting the label get ruined. If I can figure out the name of the paint I will put it on here. Not happy about that! The last order of business is to get the inserts for the closet door’s and some roman shades. I am OVER the blinds!!!

Yes that is a nerf bullet on the bottom shelf. It’s the price I pay for having kids. 🙂
I promise that is NOT a lens on the top of my bookshelf. It’s a coffee mug. Next to it is a 2x extender for my 70-200 and next to that is a Fuji Instax camera.
