This past weekend, I spent some time hanging out at our Island Home and I thought I would get some updated photos of the little office area I created. It is really no more than a corner in one of the bedrooms but my favorite thing about it is my $10 desk. I was going to sand it down and repaint it but that never happened. All it really needed was a good old fashion scrubbing. I like that it is kind of shabby chic which fits in with the Island vibe of the house. I love using my bargain finds to create unique spaces that our original to me. I feel like when I decorate with my thrifted finds I am creating a look that most people will not have because you usually can’t go out and find the exact pieces at a store.
Creating an Office Space with a Ten Dollar Thrift Shop Find
Everything in this space either came from a thrift store or was a clearance/sale item. My favorite piece hands down is the ten-dollar desk. It came from my favorite shop on the Eastern Shore. It is the perfect size and I like the little center drawer. I also have to say that I like the chair which came from Target many years ago. It makes for a nice and comfy office chair. I also like the old fashion bell on the desk. When the Gman was about 3 he was with me on a thrift shopping trip and he loved the shop bell at the register so they gave it to him. I miss those days when he came with me everywhere!
As I am sitting here looking at the photo, I am noticing that all my sea glass is missing from the glass lamp. The same person that stuck that bird statue on my desk probably took the sea glass. I am wondering how I missed all of that! I was probably just focused on my $10 desk.
The wall decor came from a thrift shop and the wooden box with the chalkboard top came from TJ Maxx. I like the driftwood look of it. It usually houses some of my books which are missing as well. Apparently, I am not very observant when I am taking photos!
I hope you have enjoyed my little office space at my home away from home.
Until Next Time,
