You guys, I finally have my own space for my writing! It’s something I’ve been wanting for a very long time. Up until now I’ve just been using my couch, but I really wanted a desk. I also wanted built-in bookshelves for all my books (or at least a good portion of them) but it just didn’t seem like a financial reality. (Built-ins are expensive guys!)
But my hubby has been getting pretty handy with projects lately, so I enlisted him to help with making them. We started with IKEA bookshelves and just built around them so that they looked built in. We added crown molding and a baseboard so that it truly became a part of the room. I’m so happy with how they turned out! We also made a Murphy bed that can fold up into the wall or come down into the room. That way we can use it as a guest room too. Now I finally have a place to get my writing done and couldn’t be happier 🙂
I also am in love with the light fixture I picked out. Makes me feel fancy 😉
I added a bunch of wordy-type decorations, and these letter balls are probably my favorite! Of course I love the ampersand and A and Z bookends, but there’s something about these that make me happy.
I can’t stop looking at my room and I love how it all came together! What do you think?
