A Space of My Own


Close up (currently writing thank you notes from Ollie's birthday party)

(need to fill in desk frame) Yellow Hello Kitty tin now holds pens and pencils :)

Cute bunny tape dispenser and mini mason jar for paper clips, etc.


new knob from Anthropologie

I finally have a little area in my home of my very own {bedroom doesn't count once you're married ;)}. I love doing mini home projects that don't cost much, but make a huge difference. My desk originally had a wood colored top, so I just sanded and spray painted black to match the legs, screwed in a cute little knob, and that was it. The transformation was probably only $15.

Now, I am on the hunt for a chair for my little desk area. I already know I plan to paint it a high gloss white with a busy black and white print cushion seat. Stay tuned for that post ;)

I love it, it looks so chic. Did the lamp come already with the flowers on or did you customize? It looks so pretty!

Jesse, it came like that. Funny story I purchased it while on vacation visiting my friend and had to carry the lamp shade in my carry on bc it wouldn't fit it suitcase! :P
