I am loving my new work space! I posted the photo below last week, asking for ideas for how to make this space acceptable in a living room (read: not "office-y").
...flower decals that turned out to be plastic. Interesting.
desk, chair, lamp, books, framed family photos, large antique plate, knobs, deer skull, leaf plate, plants, and double rose plate: free (shopped the house for those)
tester of paint: $3
Plaster of Paris (plaster + water + flat paint = chalk paint): free (from my friend)
smaller white plate + hanger: $3 (Salvation Army)
I believe my grandfather made this ceramic leaf. The little double plate was from my great aunt's house, and the skull belongs to my husband. It was the first deer he hunted.
I have a meaningful and beautiful space where work can be completed.I have another "before and after" to show you next time. So stick around! And thanks for reading.
