Check Out My New Home Office

It’s been about 2 months but I’ve finally completed my new home office.  Remember way back when … when I literally just had a room.  No furniture.  No desk.  No lamp.  No file cabinet.  Just some boxes and a bunch of books and papers that were in complete disarray.  What?  A cardboard box isn’t a file cabinet?

Well … not anymore!  Check it all out!

As you’ll recall, I made a trip to IKEA and purchased my desk ($49.99), rug ($139), and desk lamp ($19.99).  I voyaged out one more time to purchase a Vittsjo double shelf ($79.99) and pulled off a pretty spectacular IKEA hack.  After spray painting the shelf the same color as the desk legs, I added some drawer pulls (also purchased at IKEA) to the top, making the shelf look well … like it hadn’t been purchased at IKEA.  In fact, one of my friends thought it came from a pricey local furniture store.  Nope!

But saving money on some things allowed me to spend more on others.  I bought this cool boho chair from a local designer’s showroom—I begged her to sell it to me after spying it in her window while waiting to pick up a pizza—true story.

Bulldog approved!

This lamp was purchased locally.

And these vintage file cabinets were literally dug out from under layers and layers of furniture at a shop near my house.

I’m really excited to have such a great work space.  And … I have a lot to do in 2018!  Check out my new business idea One Life Foods Market here.

I hope everyone has a fabulous New Year’s.  Let’s make 2018 a year of action and a year of success!
