jay kay. i am not high. just excited to have my own space where there's no snot or spit up to be found.
so. there's this little room off the master. i believe these were called "sitting rooms" in the 80's but i'm not sure what they're supposed to be for. OHHHHH, sitting romantically together talking back and forth over magazines and spiked hot chocolate while you laugh about your day.
we have a sitting room and it's called, every other room in the house.
at first i wanted to make it a laundry room/craft room. but my husband was adamant about this just being my space(because he's amazing). and luckily, i found a different space upstairs for just the laundry...stay tuned. like stay tuned for a year because we need to save some monies first because i just spent it all at ikea this last week.
anyway, here she is before we moved in:
the desk is 2 shelves from ikea with one of their countertops on top. i wanted it to be really long so i could get my craft on.
my desk chair is a side table from target with some ikea fur thrown on top. i don't need a comfy office chair because i have a couch in there. this chair is for not falling asleep. the couch is for falling asleep and pretending i'm working.
could not resist gold and black pencils with little sayings on them. target does me so wrong and so right all at the same time.
why yes, that is a jewelry hanger i bought at target on clearance for $5 that i spray painted gold.
these nate berkaus shears are changing my life. so wonderful. worth the $16.
the oversized paperclips are his too. i had to resist buying all of his office line because i'm not a millionaire.
i do have a little bulletin board area that's nothing crazy. i hung them with brass tacks. i love that it's simple.
now turning to the other wall, more shelving. because MORE SHELVES!
and this little settee i found on the side of the road. people be crazy.
all the black cubby bins are from ikea too. surprise. you can't beat $3.99.
the bottom baskets are my "project baskets". instead of piles, i make for parties i'm throwing or crafts i'm doing, i'll throw them in baskets and call it organized.
the numbers are from the ikea gift section. i decided to do numbers because i don't have to label my stuff... i'm the only one that uses them. i know what's in them because i made them and they are my sheep. wait. biblical analogy gone wrong.
like i was saying, for instance, number three has all the " keep stuff together things" in it. glue, tape, stickers, staplers. etc.
and so on and so forth.
i forget what the other numbers are but i'll make a key and tape it to my desk.
i made this little print. is it just me or is dirty dancing far too inspiring. why does it give me goosebumps every time they do their last dance? i feel like i can change the world after i watch the scene.
you guys can print it out too...here's my file. you're welcome. go change the world.
the rug is from costco. and it's changing my feet's life. where are my toes? they're eaten by fur. yes please.
the ottoman is from target clearance for $20.
it was this:
a little spray paint, and some indoor outdoor fabric i already had, and i love it so much.
(the floors are white wood. the entire master is this color...it sort of just looks like bare wood with a slight whitewash. the rest of the house is dark hardwoods...but i felt like i could get away with something crazy in the master. if i get sick of the trend, we can always stain it darker)
i spent $900 on all the shelving, accessories, and rugs. i already owned the mirror, and the couch and some of the accessories. and i went ahead and stole things from around the house to make it complete.
white on white on white FOREVERRRRRR.
