What a relief! I converted a previously unused, junky room into a home office. I tried to keep it simple and bright so that I wouldn't get distracted by lots of patterns and colors while designing new dessert tables.
First we moved all of my craft and dessert stuff in so we could start laying out the arrangement. I bought a desk, bookcase, and inspiration boards. This took trips to three different stores, but it was worth it. Once in place, my typically unobservant hub realized they all had a crisscross pattern. I hadn't noticed that at all. What a fortunate accident!
Next we constructed the bookshelf. I used Post-its to configure the best layout. I put frequently-used items, like weddings magazines and fabric swatches, at eye level.
My little one "helped" by repeatedly cleaning out my work bag.
And now...the after pics!
I'm obsessed with this dress right now. It's the inspiration centerpiece for my upcoming pink and navy "Love" dessert table.
What does your home office look like? If it's as non-existent as mine used to be, take the time to invest in a space that works for you.
