Family life and LOCO has been a little busier than I anticipated. Months of GO GO GO had my office looking like a train wreck!
I am the type of person who can’t go to bed unless the kitchen is clean, so it was a daily stresser having my office look like this. I needed some organizational pieces and to change the color of the room. It was a dingy brown color and I had been wanting to freshen it up since I moved my office to this room.
Fall is the busiest, but best time of year so I finally got around to asking our painter to come and change this office from a poop brown to a calm gray. I wanted to go all white, but didn’t want have to change the trim as well, which is a cream color.
When I started making the earrings, I kicked the boys out of this room which they used to play xbox and moved that to the basement. I like this room because it is spacious and has a big window that gives awesome natural light.
I chose a calm color called Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams. The process was a lot of work but it turned out great.
I have a large bulletin board I found at Habitat for Humanity that I covered in some leftover wallpaper I had from my laundry room. It is basically an inspiration board that I keep ideas on. I have quotes, projects, leather samples, newspaper clips, pictures, basically anything that gets my brain going.
I have slowly been buying storage shelves and now finally have enough to hold all my goods! :). Thanks Aldi and Ikea!
And right before the painters came, I went to Ikea and bought several peg boards. They are a life saver to keep ribbon, vinyl, boards and just about everything I use daily organized.
Hooray! Now, I can work in peace and serenity! AND my Etsy shop is back open for business. Look for new fall and winter leathers coming next week! THEY ARE SO PRETTY!!!
