Keep it Bright & Cheery!

Country Home

Lately I have been thinking about what I can do to finish up our home office area. One end of our sunroom is set up as our office/craft area. I have a wishlist already of what I need to make it just right. I love white! I think it is just so bright and cheery! I am on the search for another desk that I can fix up! Or maybe I might just make one out of an old door!

Cute idea for storage of craft supplies! I am always looking for cool ways to store supplies! I came across an idea for making a phone charger station out of a minnow bucket! Cute huh?!

Great idea! Use an old toolbox as a desk organizer!

Two examples of bright & cheery home offices from blogland:

Cheryl at TidyMom posted about her recent project. She did an amazing job in her home office! Lots of paint and some de-cluttering and she has a beautiful fresh new room. You can see more photos and read all about it here, including some trash to treasure transformations with some of the accessories.

Over at Just Beachy, Chris Kaufman showed off her built-in kitchen computer nook created from an old hutch and buffet! Wow! Hard to believe looking at it now! I love all the details on this! See more images here.

As for me, I am still hoping to come across one of these office chairs at a yard sale:

Pottery Barn

I don't hold out much hope! They are so pretty, though! And I am still trying to figure out a second desk option. Time to hit the yard sales again and keep searching! That's my plan for tomorrow anyway!
