To remind you what it looked like before.....
And now - oh I am so happy, most importantly, that is a useful space!
Almost all the furniture is repurporsed, only the couch is new and I bought a wee set of office drawers for $30 from trademe. The blanket box is my late Mother in Laws, the bookshelf was stolen from my corner in the lounge and the desk and chair are our old dining table, which has been sitting in the garage for a few years waiting to be given away or sold.
And the thing that excites me the most, is how useful it is. I can sit at the desk and look out and see the kids in the backyard. I can shut the door at the top of the stairs and get some work done when my husband is home. I can sneak down there and do some work whenever I like. I can spread out my stuff everywhere and its not the lounge floor. I can connect up that second screen to my laptop and work on spreadsheets and patterns so much easier. Its like a dream! I have used that room almost every day in the last few weeks, which is probably more than it has been used combined over the last 5 years. WIN!
Here is my yarn in the cupboard - its very organised, and these boxes are full. Which means I need to knit some stuff before I buy anything else. I did get rid of a few random skeins when I sorted it, ones I knew I would never knit, which was rather gratifying.
And that is IT!
So there you go, welcome to my office!
