my space

I think most of you have already done this, but I was inspired by Meow to post a picture of my office.


BEFORE:
This is what my office looked like before we bought our house.









AFTER:





I thought the green walls might be overpowering when I was painting them, but now that all the stuff is in here, I think they look pretty cool.



George put these IKEA lights on the ceiling.




There's tons of IKEA stuff in here.

These are IKEA magnet boards, great for getting little things off my desk.


Those are IKEA curtains and that's an IKEA mobile hanging from the ceiling. The shelves are not IKEA. They are bending like crazy.

That looks like a great space. I turned my dining room into an office. If I ever clean it up, I might post some pics, but it's pretty chaotic right now. I guess in some ways it mirrors my life, which is ok since the rest on my house balances it out (I can even park two cars and my Harley in the garage!). It's important, I feel, to have some space to contemplate - to relax and just be - to let the thoghts turn to ideas and then words. Very nice.

Your office space looks wonderful, Jenn. Love the green ... so calming. Isn't IKEA wonderful ??? Wish we had one closer ... although it is only about 35 minutes drive away. Have a great day, Meow

Thanks everyone, I'm really happy with how my space here turned out. We watched a lot of HGTV for ideas, and painted 7 rooms in our house before the movers brought our stuff in. Maybe sometime I'll post some pictures of the rest of the house. We went crazy with IKEA everywhere.

Looks like a comfy pad you both have there.

Nice work.

What a fun office! I wish I had more than a corner of my bedroom. I could probably paint my corner, green, though. Great color.

gotta love IKEA... I have the exact same lamp in my bedroom/office/livingroom..

Jenn said...

Thanks Bryan and Jennifer, yeah I really like my little space here.

Hi Nerdine! You guys must have a few IKEAs in Norway! That lamp was such a great deal... something like $20. We went crazy in IKEA; we replaced every ceiling light in this house.

Jenn said...

Nerdine... we also get a lot of good canned herring there! :)
