I am carving out space for a office space in my apartment dining area. I have decided that this is the best use of the space right now. That may change later if my needs change.
Here’s how I created the fabric frame with the clock: I cut the fabric to be smaller than the outside of the frame. I then took thumb tacks and just tacked the fabric on the wall. Then I hung the frame directly over the fabric.
I really like all this natural light that I’m getting from the patio doors. I can look outside and see my pretty patio. That is a big plus for this location in my home.
I hung my college diploma from journalism school up top. I’ve tried to add things that are important to me. And that diploma has spent many years in closets where I never saw it.
So here’s what I purchased:
The chair ($118 I think)
The black wire basket above the printer ($8)
Red spray paint ($5)
The little white can with pencils (about $3)
The three clipboards: (Under $10 dollars)
My budget for this project was $150. The chair took up the bulk of that. So I came in at $144.
I ordered the red and white buffalo curtains, but I didn’t consider them part of this project. They were to help keep my electric bill down because they are nice and lined.
They were the last curtains on my list to buy. I started buying these curtains when I first moved in here, and have just added as time goes by, ordering from the same online shop. I also have the shower curtain that matches. I just love red and white buffalo checked fabric.
Here’s how I created the clipboards with inserted printables: I applied Frog tape in both horizontal and vertical fashion across the clipboards, then painted over the tape with red spray paint.
I printed the printables from the internet. All were free. I like to have quotes that are important to me where I can see them and reflect on their meaning. And I thought the leaf was appropriate for fall.
Of course my coffee bar is right behind me. Which is a nice feature in an office space.
