So suddenly, I am living alone in what has become a very large living space for me, a crazy spinster cat lady (or whatever my official title is these days). While this whole situation quite frankly blows, you know the saying: when life gives you lemons … pour the vodka. So I decided to make the best of things.
Time to redecorate!
Goodbye, two bedroom/two bathroom. Hello, one bedroom/bathroom with one home office/bathroom.
While the budget for this redecoration is limited at best (feel free to send donations! I have a PayPal account!), I made do with what I had, and took advantage of a sale at the Container Store (a “desk” for less than $100? Don’t mind if I do!). So without further ado, I present to you, for the first time, my “proper” office in all its IKEA / Container Store glory (yes, I’m renting, so excuse the beige-ness of the walls and carpet).
At some point I’ll need to do something about the complete lack of color — maybe add a throw rug, hang some more stuff, etc. All in good time – this will do for now. When I need some creative inspiration, I’ll just … well … enjoy the view.
