For quite some time now I've wanted a little blogging space in my home, somewhere which I could call an office and a place that would inspire me to sit down and write my blog when I so wished. Ever since I began blogging I have also blogged with my laptop either on my couch or my bed and it's far from ideal really - although super comfortable!
Ever since we moved Tyler Lee from his nursery into his toddler room the spare room has sat idly by, becoming a dumping ground for unopened toys, Jacek's college notes and other bits and bobs that don't have a place around the house - all this is about to change, the box room is going to becoming a creative space and my office.
Yesterday I set about clearing out the room and reclaiming the desk that was in there. Now this desk would be my most favourite thing in the world, it has that light natural wood finished which I hate but it does have a pull out table and space underneath for my printer and camera bag so that's a plus! I'd love to paint it but as I don't own it (rented house) I don't want to go near other people's property. I might get some pretty floral fabric and put a glass top on it but we'll see...
I dotted some of my favourite things around the desk to truly make it my space - my rose scented candles, fresh flowers, some of my favourite prints, my snowglobe with my two angels in it, my tin full of important receipts and reminders, my blogging diary and of course my cameras, I have two for blogging, my Canon bridge for shooting at longer distances and my Nikon D3200.
I really love how my little blogging space turned out. It's quite girly with lots of hints of pink, just what I like and I'm glad to have gotten my Gil Elvgren pinup girl print up, finally (it's only been about four years!). I now have to sort out my chair and shelf space. I have some DIY projects I want to do, which I shall surely share with you all in an update on my office space very soon. Wish me luck in getting all of Jacek's college notes organised (can you see their ugliness on the side of my pictures?!) and put away, as well as making the room exactly how I want it for as cheap as possible - my thrifty self can't resist a challenge!
Do you like my blogging space? Where do you blog?
