A couple of weeks ago, I posted a photo on Instagram + mentioned that I had built myself a little home office/work space that I planned to share with you soon. Well, today is that day! 🙂
I live in a teeny tiny condo with my wonderful roommate, and while it pretty much suits our needs, I had spent a lot of time blogging from my bed, the couch, or our small dining table. It worked, but I desperately wanted a desk of my own. I put it on my vision board…and next thing I knew, it appeared! 😉
Just kidding. I broke finger nails + skin building this thing!
I spent the better part of New Years Day assembling this baby + making some space in my bedroom for it!
Now ladies, I wouldn’t necessarily call this fun, but I cannot express how important it is to be able to do this kind of stuff on your own!
I’ve always been one to build my own furniture or get down + dirty cleaning, moving, painting… whatever it may be [learned that from my Mama]! You CAN do anything + you should! That sense of independence is irreplaceable.
Quick snapshot after I was done building! It was a long day, but I was so proud of myself for creating this little nook all on my own. 🙂
I finally had some time to put my vision board together!
My thoughtful roommate bought me this adorable baby orchid. She goes “just a little something…it’ll continue to bloom, just like you!” SHE’S LITERALLY THE SWEETEST. I don’t have the greenest of thumbs, so here’s to not letting it totally die! lol
I decided to put my everyday makeup + zoom mirror here so that the space could be used as a vanity as well! [YAY for not having to get ready on the floor in front of the window anymore!] 🙂
The Zebra chair + crystal lamp were two pieces I already owned. Both were purchased from either Home Goods, TJ Maxx, or Marshalls[?] …they ended up working perfectly in this space. 🙂
I am SO happy with my desk. It may not be very much, but it serves such a purpose + puts the biggest smile on my face! 🙂
I look forward to having my own office one day, but for now…this works perfectly fine!
Do you have a designated “work space” at home?
