After years of working on the couch and having my supplies, props, and paperwork stuffed into every corner of the house, I finally have a space of my own. Our spare room is now my very own office! Having been a guest room for many years, this space had turned into a junk room of late. I did a big purge and donated many boxes and bags to The Children’s Wish Foundation, who just happened to call at the right time for a pick up. It’s a tiny room, but I can’t believe how big it seems now, and it’s so bright with 4 windows surrounding my desk. I can’t help but be in a good mood when I walk into this room.
Here are all the details on the room, in case you have any questions:
The paint colour is Benjamin Moore Glass Slipper, it’s a soft, pretty blue.
The desk is an old Ikea kitchen table that I painted white with Van Gogh fossil paint I purchased at Mango Reclaimed here in Whitby. I also painted the chair, and one of my prop chairs with the same paint.
Believe it or not, the inspirational quote canvas was purchased online at Walmart. Yep, Walmart.
I got the potted plant at our local florist in town, Brooklin Floral Shop.
I love, love, love the picture ledges from Ikea! I won’t take credit for this idea, I saw another photographer use them in her office and I thought it was genius. I’ll be adding photos to the ledge as the budget allows.
The little bookcase is also from Ikea, it’s the familiar Billy model.
I used a double towel bar from Ikea to hang the tissue paper I use to pack my orders for my clients, and a couple of wall hooks from Home Depot to hang my product bags.
I got my cute little paperweight from SJ Engraving on Etsy. I didn’t even buy it, it was a surprise gift with the purchase of another item.
The frames are Ribba frames from Ikea. I LOVE them!!
The paper pompoms were purchased on Etsy from Pomtree. I use them as props at Christmas and Valentine’s.
Finally, the Martha Stewart cube storage units are available at Home Depot. I used 2 of them next to each other.
