Office Space

And now for another update on my never-ending renovation of the previous bedroom now playroom/office space.

I've finally finished the small office area of the room and I'm excited about how it turned out. I took a lot of inspiration from online resources and blogs, but was careful to truly make it a space of my own. This picture was taken last night, after the last little touch had been added to my new space.


- I fell in love with this shelving idea from John and Sherry at Young House Love and knew I wanted to somehow incorporate it into my room when I saw it on their blog last summer. I lined my shelves with pictures and items to remind me of the past year, along with a metro map from our recent trip to New York and a print from my Etsy shop. I'm thinking of adding one additional shelf above the existing one to give me more space to play with, but as you know, I'm slow.

- I followed the directions here for the small chevron canvas behind my laptop and really happy with the results. I knew I wanted to add some sort of chevron accent to this area, and I love the silver and yellow together.

- My Walmart parsons table and black chair from my dining table work perfect together, as well as my TJ Maxx lamp, bought in the clearance section for only $9.99. I love a great bargain, especially when it looks this expensive!

- I picked up my yellow owl bank at Urban Outfitters and have found that store to by my new go-to for quirky and colorful home accessories. Check them out if you have one - very similar items to Anthropologie at just a fraction of the cost!

So, what do you guys think? Thought I'd never make any more progress on my never-ending room renovation? Seen any cool small but stylish office spaces you'd like to share?


  1. love it! it looks great! that little yellow owl is adorable and i will have to make myself a chevron print soon!

  2. It's beautiful, but where/how/when do you find the time!???

  3. Dang girl! You are like part-amazing-decorator-part-amazing-photographer! Great job!

  4. It looks so cool! Love the lamp! I turned my office space into a vanity.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
