Since moving into our house almost a year ago it's been a game of musical rooms.
Our house isn't HUGE so I have to find ways to get the greatest amount of use and functionality out of every square inch.
And I have two little curious children on my hands so emphasis on functionality.
I had my desk tucked into the guest room but I found that I needed to work more than when the kids were asleep, so I moved my desk out of there and put it smack dab in our family room.
I can work and watch them play at the same time.
This space felt like an outlaw and cramped... so I put my designer brain on... resisted the urge to move the desk out... and took a little trip to Homegoods on the hunt for a large mirror to make the space feel bigger, and more like it belonged.
Ta-da. Homegoods always has my back.
So.. I came home, hung it up.. did what any good blogger does when they hang something on the wall... I took some pictures for your viewing pleasure.
I picked up this Threshold desk from Target a few months ago, I love it.
I found this vintage chair, I plan on painting it up with some Miss Mustard Seed Milkpaint, but I can't decide on a color... so there it sits in its yellowy oak glory.
It's kind of an unconventional space for a desk, but I'm keeping it real. I think real people have kids that fill the rooms in their houses and don't have a great office space.
So there it is.
And to get an idea of where it is in our family room... and just how small of a space I'm working with.
