As I mentioned the other day, I am taking a vacation this week in honour of it being Spring Break around this neck o’the woods and Bette from Somerset Lane has stepped up and offered to share a project with y’all in my absence. She is here to share some fabulously quick and easy office area updates that were both simple and completely transformative to her small office space! I love simple projects with big results, don’t you?!
Hi ya, Happy Housie readers! I’m Bette and I blog over at Somerset Lane. We moved into our house in the summer of 2013 and we have been slowly adding our own personality to our home.
One of the areas, that that has needed my desperate attention was a teeny tiny little office area, that I share with my family. It is where I blog from, pay bills from, and spend way too much time looking through Pinterest and Facebook!
I showed everyone what a hot mess my teeny-tiny little office area was last fall. Here’s a before pic. Be prepared, this is not for the faint of heart. Please do not hold your breath too long.
|PLEASE DO NOT PIN!!|
And so that I can redeem myself, here is the after…
- I got rid of the junk (genius, I know!)
- New desk
- Added shelves to show off pretty things,
- Get rid of old printer, buy smaller one,
- Keep only essentials on desktop,
- Move ugly file cabinet elsewhere
And a nice clean pic…
I still have quite a bit to do in this area, but it is so much easier on the eyes now. Don’t you think?
If you go visit Bette over at Somerset Lane you will see that she has some other gorgeous simple projects to share with you… like these:
Or delicious recipes like Gingersnap Cookies (mmmm, I’m drooling…)
Thanks for being here Bette!
Thanks for reading. And remember my housie friends, HOME isn’t built in a day. Enjoy the journey!
