HI everyone! This year has been a busy one with my decision to return to real estate and goals to grow the other love in my life… my blog. #wink. I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since this happened. Needless to say, I am a work in progress. And, my home office update continues to be a work in progress, as well.
I fell in love with this lamp I found at HomeGoods. I fell in love with the white and brass finishes; it was perfect to get me out of my patterned lamp shade stage.
Now that you have a taste of the new here was my office a few years ago. Let’s take a walk down memory lane.
I didn’t love this color so I repainted the walls while watching all three Bridget Jones’ movies.
Of the three Bridget movies, which one is your favorite?
I still have that chair, but because of Dropbox and online everything, I no longer need a 50-pound file cabinet.
And, I get my go-to files over here at Target.
And, then there are the large slider windows that face the backyard. I have switched my desk so I face towards the
window. And, I switched it around where my back is to the window. I get a little creeped out when I can’t
see what is outside the window. Do you?
Here’s my desk. I got in on clearance on New Year’s Eve. Pottery Barn keeps a list of interested customers for their floor model pieces. Score! Check with your local Pottery Barn store.
I tried placing my desk to the side of the window but didn’t like it. But, seeing this view below I may try it again.
The desk is a little too big; it gives me more space for stacks and paper. In fact, we use it as a second dining room table during the holidays.
I fell in love with this vertical chalkboard from Home Goods. But, it is just chilling on that huge wall from my previous office.
Stay tuned! I do have a thing for chalkboards.
And, finally here is this Bowerbank bookcase I bought here.
It’s a little crowded, but it’s a work in progress; just like me!
