With my recent journey in the blogging world & the new business of Ethel Edith, Jade & I realized that we needed an upgrade in our life. We had a computer from 2001, and we didn't even have the internet at home. So we have a brand spanking new laptop & the wireless internet on its way! I'm so excited! This will also give me an opportunity to work at home when my kids are sick - which is often!
I quickly realized that I needed a place to work! Yes I could sit on the couch and work, but if I happen to work from home - I really needed a desk! So my brain went to work. I went down to my basement to my plethera of things & drug up a cute little green desk & a bright orange chair. I decided that I'd build this workspace in our bedroom. We have a really large master & it was holding a chair that we really didn't use much. Plus, if I'm actually working - I need a space that's away from the TV and the kids - somewhere quiet!
I already had the lamp next to the chair that used to sit here. I then hung our wedding picture above the desk & placed my most favorite picture of Aubrie on the desk. She was a very difficult newborn & she cried a lot. She's actually screaming on my shoulder in the picture, but that's why I love it so much!
Then, I headed down to my Mom's. I needed something on the other wall that was unique and fun. I found a fabulous cubby cabinet! It's covered in old newspaper. I was immediately drawn toward it! Then, Mom and I dug some more, and found a bunch of old clocks. They were perfect. I placed them in the cubby cabinet & on the desk. I'm thrilled now. It's the perfect little workspace that I needed.
Our armoire has loads of storage! It hides the TV & has 3 drawers for more clothes. It used to be a hideous wood tone that was splattered with black paint so it looked aged. I can't put into words how ugly it was. I LOVE red, so one day it just came to me that duh - this thing needed painted! So I painted it and aged it and spray painted the knobs black. I really like this piece now. It's large and substantial, and actually good looking now!
