Welcome! It’s Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours: Work & Play Edition week! The oh so sweet and talented Lindsay of The White Buffalo Styling Co. invited me to share the space in which I work and my family and I play. If you’re stopping in from The Décor Fix, welcome welcome! And if you’ve ended up here elsewhere, so glad to have you here, too! Multifunctional spaces are my jam because with a mere 1,200 square feet to work with- I need to maximize and get creative with the rooms we have.
Once upon a time I took the smallest bedroom of our house and turned it into a home office. And I never used it! It was closed off from the rest of the house and I couldn’t leave my boy to play unsupervised. So the room filled with junk and I hardly see it anymore. We have better plans for the space. But that’s after the kitchen gets a facelift and the dining room gets finished. Here’s what that cute space used to look like.
Right now, I work in my living room. I just recently shared the new look for this space and how it functions as our current eating space as well as hanging out. But I want to go into a bit more detail of how this space works for me to work in and for my son to play in.
Honestly, though, if I am to be completely honest. I do most of my computer work on my lunch breaks in my car at work. I work full time out of the home and have a mandatory 1 hour lunch break so I take that time to do most of my blog posts. But I didn’t think a picture of my car would be cute?
The white chair that everyone loves is my work chair. It was a $50 Craigslist find. It already needs new upholstery but I’m letting it wear until the kiddo is older. I sit here with my feet propped up on the cute little foot rest and my laptop in my lap. It makes it easy to chat with my husband while he sits on my couch and I’m able to sit my laptop down and slide out of the seat immediately to jump into the latest game my son is playing.
Beside me is the small cabinet in which I keep my blogging binder, current paperwork I’m dealing with and my planner. Isn’t this thing cute? It came in my “organize” Globein box and it couldn’t be more perfect for me.
And the cubby on the wall with all. the. art. holds a small portion of the son’s massive toy collection. He’s a collector… of toys and rocks. He’s also always wildly interested in what I’m doing which is why it works out so well for us for me to be in the middle of it all while I work.
And as for that migration from the office o junk to the dining room? It’s started! I picked up this intricate cabinet with hidden doors and really cool hardware. I’ve already started moving my office and some craft supplies into it.
