Did anyone else think of this episode of the Brady Bunch when you read my post title? “When it’s time to change, you’ve got to rearrange!” Ok, maybe not. I’m a big dork.
Remember my big plans to redo my office? Well, I decided to save the money and give my office a new look by rearranging the furniture and working with what I already own.
First order of business: get rid of this thing!
Mal and I had no luck finding a place for it in our house, so we put it outside in front of our house with a FREE sign on it. We woke up this morning and it was gone. I’m glad someone snagged it because I really didn’t want it to go to the dump—it was still in good condition.
Simply removing that huge piece of furniture from my office instantly made it look bigger—well, at least more open.
The new set-up:
Mal and I brought up a cabinet from the basement for storage and moved the desk to the other side of the room. I swear, it makes the space look a zillion times more open (and less stressful). I’m planning to rearrange the frames on the wall and buy a couple of accessories to spruce it up, so I’ll be sure to post a picture of the final product once it’s done. I absolutely love the new layout!
Do you want to know what sparked this whole office redesign? A new Keurig machine!!
Foodbuzz selected me to receive the new Starbucks coffee K-Cup Portion Packs along with a Keurig machine. (So cool! Review coming soon!) There was no room on our kitchen counters for it, so Mal suggested putting it in my office. He doesn’t drink hot coffee, so I’d be the only one using it. His idea made perfect sense, but, at the time, there was nowhere to put, so we rearranged the office and added the cabinet.
I love, love, love the new look and feel of my office. It makes me excited to go to work each morning!
I woke up hungry this morning, so I fed Murphy and then immediately cooked breakfast. Mal mentioned cooking eggs and bacon for breakfast this morning, but I couldn’t wait to eat. Plus, I wasn’t really in the mood for a savory breakfast, so I whipped up a bowl of sweet potato oatmeal using leftover sweet potatoes from Thanksgiving dinner. Also in the mix: ground flaxseed meal, mushroom powder, pumpkin pie spice, and a scoop of Teddie peanut butter. (Mal didn’t care that I ate breakfast without him—more bacon for him!)
