Farmhouse Style Home Office Reveal!

OMGGGGGGGGG. I know I say this a lot, and you’re probably annoyed at this point, but I am SO excited for today’s post. Seriously, I kind of feel like a kid on Christmas because I finally, finally have my very own home office and today I get to share it with you guys! If you’ve been around for a while you know that I’ve been wanting a little office area for a LONG time now, but it just never really worked out. I honestly didn’t think there was a good space in our home for one and I even kicked around the idea of converting our little white shed in the backyard into my she-shed/office. Obviously that would have been a huge project, and my husband wasn’t exactly thrilled about it, so I started looking around the house for an area I could transform into an office. Well it finally dawned on me that I had the perfect spot in our basement just waiting to be transformed into the LVN office. It’s actually turned out better then I had hoped and I’m so happy to share it with you today!

I can’t even believe that I finally have my own little office, which is SO important when you work from home. I mean, it’s not like I don’t love working from the couch, kitchen table, or even my bed. But it’s really not the most inspiring place and it’s hard to be organized in a setting like that. So finally having a space like this is just awesome. I really wanted a designated area I could go to and feel inspired and motivated to sit down at work. I think this spot does exactly that! The desk fits in perfectly with my little shelf and it all just feels so inviting and cozy, even for an office.

This desk was one I’d been eyeing for a long time and I was lucky enough to snag it a few weeks ago when it went on a MAJOR sale. (And last I check it’s still on sale!) I am so impressed with the overall quality and I love that it has tons of storage space without being too large or bulky. Plus I love the weathered wood finish.

How cute is this little file holder?! It’s actually holding all of the magazines I’ve been published in so far, which is honestly still so surreal. I’ve had them all in storage, but I brought them out to sit on the desk to serve as a reminder to keep working hard and chasing my dreams, especially on days when my motivation is lacking.

This large wall basket used to hold some of the kids’ books, but I switched it over to hold all of my favorite magazines and a few random books I love as well. You know I am obsessed with The Magnolia Journal, so I usually hold on to all of my old copies just in case I ever feel like reading them again. They’re full of great inspiration!

I was going to buy a cute little office chair to go along with my new desk, but I honestly didn’t feel like spending the money on one right now. Plus I have about 14 of these white antique chairs sitting around my house and I figured this would do just fine for now. And it turns out that I actually love the combo of the antique chair with the rustic desk. It’s kind of unexpected, but it works!

I just realized this is the first space in our home that I’ve set up for just me, which feels a bit weird to be honest. I mean, usually I’m focused on things like our living room or kitchen–you know, the kind of spaces our entire family can enjoy. But this time, this one was all about me. And I gotta say, it’s pretty darn awesome to have my very own home office after almost three years of not having one. And best of all it’s a spot that inspires me and motivates me to chase my dreams. And I love that it’s set up in our basement too. The kids can be playing or snuggled on the couch watching a movie while I’m sittin’ in my spot getting work done. What could be better?!

I’m so happy you dropped by the blog today!! I’d love to hear what you think of my little farmhouse style home office and be sure to let me know if you have any questions. xoxo

  • Went shopping today for “nice” clothes & came home with a bunch of cozy sweatshirts & yoga pants! #oops 🙈 I can’t help it, I just love my comfies. This top is my favorite find from the day & it’s currently on sale 🙌🏻🙌🏻 http://liketk.it/2zrB5 #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • “Surround yourself with people who think the way you want to think”. ✨✨
__  One of my goals this year is to read one book a month. I know that probably sounds pathetic to any of you avid readers in the group, but it’s a good little goal for me & I’m excited about it. This month I’m reading “You’re a Badass” by Jen Sincero & I LOVE it so far.  Here’s one of my favorite passages in the book: — “When you hang out with whiners, pessimists, tweeters, bleachers, freakers-outers and life-is-so-unfairers, it’s an uphill climb to keep yourself in a positive headspace. Stay away from people with tiny minds and tiny thoughts and start hanging out with people who see limitless possibility as the reality. Surround yourself with people who act on their big ideas, who take action on making positive change in the world and who see nothing as out of their reach.” —  BOOM. 🙌🏻🙌🏻 So true, right?! Cheers to my fellow dreamers & visionaries. Don’t let anyone hold you back. 👊🏻
  • I’ve had so many questions about how these @walmart recliners are holding up & I can honestly say we are LOVING them so far. We’ve only had them a little over a month, but so far so good. I’ll probably do a full review for you guys soon, so stay tuned for that if you’re interested. In other news I have a new VLOG up today. Follow along as I go to Target, buy all the organizing things & take on the hot mess situation in my kitchen cabinets 😬😬 The link is in my profile.
  • Home from my hair appointment & I practically begged my husband to stand outside in a freezing (and windy) snow storm to snap a few photos of me. We somehow managed to get one decent shot, but you have to swipe right to see the outtakes #weareprofessionals 🤣🤣 happy Friday guys!! 🙌🏻 http://liketk.it/2zpyb #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • This afternoon I planned to work during nap time, but instead I spent an hour laying in bed with this girl chatting about how she’s going to have a house right next door to me when she grows up. We talked about how we’re going to be best friends forever & about how she loves the color pink. I snapped this photo to send to my husband & I had no plans of posting it here, but this is a moment I wish I could stay in forever. This is what I live for & it’s these simple moments that fill my soul & put everything into perspective for me. Motherhood is such a gift—the good days, the hard days & everything in between. I’m so grateful for it all. ❤️
  • It was nice enough to have the windows open this afternoon, so I happily soaked in all that sunshine & fresh air. Is it too soon to get excited about spring?!☀️🙌🏻 In other news I’ve been organizing & cleaning like a mad woman today. I just finished our cabinets/pantry & they look SO much better. Next up is the fridge, I’m just working up the courage to go in there. Maybe I’ll leave that job to my husband 🤣🤣 Who else is organizing all the things right now? 🙋‍♀️ http://liketk.it/2znnE #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome
