Walker House: Simple Office Makeover

There are parts of our house that have been untouched since we moved in. I pity those little corners and rooms...they simply sit with the door closed and the lights off. As the days go by, I'm attempting to utilize every inch of our house, so the "man cave" was the next area on the list. 

Our bonus room upstairs has pretty much been a holding area for our wedding gifts up until about a week ago. I finally organized and put every little thing in its rightful place, which left a big open, ugly room. 

This room is still a work in progress, but I figured I could at least update one area of it--the "office" area in the corner. 

This spot is special to me because my sweet husband made this desk with his own two hands. I love that he loves DIY crafts as much as I do. Every time I sit at the desk, I am thankful for him. Oh, and LOOK! The Goodwill chair makes its debut in the house. Hallelujah! 

It's nothing special, but it's my little corner of our house where I can sit and write, read my Bible, or just brainstorm. It's quiet and cozy, perfect for stimulating a little creativity.









It's a good thing you can't see in the mirror a reflection of the other half of the room...now that's a different story. Another post for another day, my friends.

It's definitely no Pottery Barn, but I keep reminding myself, it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful. Xoxo

  8. I love your space! I'm guilty of never getting around to fully decorating my place and then it comes time to move and I have to start all over again. Maybe one day!?

  11. Beautiful! I would LOVE a little office space like this for writing, blogging, bible reading, etc. I may just have to make one! The candles might be my favorite part. They are so relaxing and pretty!

  12. Le sigh... I wish I could have a spot in my house like this. My guy has his office space... for playing Call of Duty! Ugh. I think I'm going to have to fix that soon. :)

  15. I love the use of the tray to define the space on top of the drawers. It was just the visual I needed to figure out what was missing on my own tabletops!
