Once upon a time I had an office. I loved my office, but alas, family needs prevailed and my office ended up becoming my teenage daughter's room. What's a girl to do? I lasted about three month with my stuff in storage before I said "Enough! I need My Space." So as I looked around my home I had a thought. My formal dining room only gets used about once a month, and I never really liked the look of it anyway, so it has now become my new office and I love it! I got the bookcases from Walmart, and the basket and boxes came from Lowes and Ikea. I labeled them all so I can find everything easily.The chair was a garage sale find that I slipcovered. I was able to put most of my stuff in this area, the rest (unattractive and oversized items) I put in my unused entry closet. I kept the dining room table so we can pull chairs around it and still use it for overflow seating, but meanwhile I can spread out and really create! I have found that I really like working on the main floor instead of being crammed away in a room, so we all lived happily ever after.
