Okay, okay, so y’all are probably thinking that it doesn’t look much like an office. And you would be quite right!!! This is the most versatile space in the house, I think. It is the first room off the foyer and cleans up nicely to look like a sitting room. But most hours of most days it looks a lot more like this…
We use the little sitting area for reading and studying, and clear off the coffee table for homework and projects.
The two ghost chairs turn right around and double as desk chairs for the littles at two custom, built in work spaces that occupy one whole wall of the room.
Inside, there are two side by side units with closed storage, basket storage, bulletin boards, dry erase boards and computer desks. There is a basket for the week’s homework and projects, a basket for school work to save and a basket for notes home from the school/teacher about events, dates, etc.
Moving right along, tucked in the closet is the World Headquarters for my little Dixie Delights operation…
I have stored all of my party wares (plates, cups, napkins, straws, favor bags and such) on the very top shelf in the larger baskets. The smaller baskets hold craft supplies like paints, glues, tapes, etc. There is room for my printer off to the left as well – this was previously located on the floor of my closet and it was always a pain in the neck to print anything. I adore the versatility of the peg board for keeping things of all shapes and sizes that I use almost every day just an arms reach away. I can’t tell you how much time I spent standing on my head trying to get something out from the bottom of stacked bins in my guest room closet for the last five years.
The last little piece is the wall with the windows.
Hop on over to Dixie Delights to see all of the sources and details and many, many more pictures!! Thanks for having me, y’all!
