a tiny office nook

i recently did some rearranging and had used a small sofa table as a desk in my mudroom. i thought it was the perfect little spot to keep daily papers organized. after using it for a few days i realized that it wasn't that perfect. it was a smidgen to narrow, not allowing much space to actually write at. it also was not near an outlet so i could not have a lamp for task lighting. so on a trip to good juju last month i spotted a cute little table. i quickly dismissed it because i was using the sofa table and it was working fine. but i could not stop thinking of this cute table. good juju is open only the first weekend of every month. so for the whole month i thought about this cute table that i had seen. AND when they opened this past weekend, i was there when they opened and the table was still there. i was so excited and chalked it up as 'meant to be'.

with a little more rearranging i now have this tiny office nook (still in my mudroom). it is now by an outlet, so i am able to have a lamp on it. it also is the perfect width to actually house some organizing bins and still have room to write. i love, love, love it. funny how having this tiny space has made daily tasks a little more fun to complete.

Kathy~I love your cozy little desk area. I would actually look forward to sitting down and writing a grocery list there! I have a built in desk area that needs a little personalization. After seeing your space, fixing mine up has zoomed to the top of my "to do" list. Thanks for sharing.

Kathy~ I am a lurker but I love your blog (and I drool over your kitchen island on a weekly basis)

Could you pretty please with sugar on top tell us where you got that calendar above your desk? I simply LOVE it!

Hi Kathi - I thought I'd check in to see what you've been up to!! I love your new trays for spring! And, of course, I love your cozy little nook! I think it is a great idea to create a coffee table book of photos of your mantel arrangements - I have an old white frame like yours...hmmm - I think I might have to do some rearranging of my mantel... Talk to you soon! Lauri

I even changed my dining chairs to go with your chair! i wanted to thank you for giving me my passion back! I lost my mom almost 3 years ago, and my passion too.
