A peek inside MY room

Several months ago I decided I needed a space of my own. Okay, I totally know that technically the entire house is mine when it comes to decorating and that sort of thing. And the Fella does have his own man cave. Which is something I highly recommend. Highly.

But I really needed a workspace for blogging, couponing and that sort of thing. So I brought in a desk and created a little studio for myself.

I thought it was about time to share a little bit of it with you- more than the peeks you get on Wednesday when I am posing in front of the wardrobe.

The bed belonged to my father-in-law when he was a kid.
The wardrobe was a gift from my cousin when we moved in.
I picked it out.
It was $125 from a local antique mall and it holds shoes and bags.
The desk was made by my grandpa and is one of my prized possessions.
I added the red.
The piece on top is from the Fella's old bedroom.
I added the red.
The chair was $2 at a yardsale.
Everything else is gifted or thrifted.
I decided the afghan could hang on the wall. Why not?

Thanks for stopping by today. YOU are just the best.

Loved the desk before I read its true meaning...now I love it even more.
And the wardrobe...so so so great. I've mentioned how much I adore that wardrobe before.
Wishing you were with me at Target today. Went in to find a new purse and instead found a pair of super cute, darker stretchy jean-ish (but not jeans) material, dressy capri's on clearance. $7!!! I smiled and thought of you!

Why not indeed! I love your room. A gal really needs her own room to retreat to. And it's so absolutely you!

Dena said...

I love everything about your space and the fact that it is all yours...umkay, a smidgen green with envy over here. That desk is absolutely wonderful.

I love your Woman Cave! I too think that we are entitled to have our own space just as much as men.

I literally could move in to your room... please?
