Show Us Where You Live Fridays- Offices

Kelly's Korner sponsors Show Us Where You Live Fridays. This Friday is home offices. I'm currently working on completing my home office. We have two offices. My husband has his own office, although I call it his man room. I would share pictures of that office as well but it is in complete shambles at the moment. Anyway, here are some pictures of my work in progress. I love to quilt and scrapbook so in addition to being used as an office space, it will also be used as a craft room.

We just finished painting this week. This is the pull-out sofa we have in the room. I like the pattern but I'm considering covering it so it would go better with the room.

This is a drawing a college roommate of mine did for her senior art project. It's done with inks.

Like I said, it's still a work in progress so everything is not in its proper place yet. This is a picture of my work table. I found this old metal top table at a flea market and repainted it this light shade of green. The quilt over the rack is a gift from my husband's grandmother for our wedding.Here's another view of the dest and window. I love the valance I found at Walmart.
I found this saying on a website and thought it was perfect. I cut the letters with a Cricut machine. My sister-in-law got a Cricut and it is AWESOME!! I'm planning on framing some of my favorite fabrics and hanging them around this.

Well there you have it. I would love any comments or suggestions anyone has to offer.


  1. Cute room. I love your sofa! It looks comfy enough to curl up on...

  2. Love your painting.. you are very talented!!

  3. That saying is perfect for my mom- she has an entire wall- floor to ceiling- filled with bolts of fabric for quilting. I heard sewing skips a generation- skipped me for sure! The quilt is lovely and how precious that it came from a grandmother!

  4. What a cute office space! I love the wall words and comfy sofa! Thanks for the tour!

  5. I love that saying! I think that you have a wonderful place! And Walmart really does have the best curtains!!! Thank you so much for sharing.

  6. So cute! I love your saying and I think your idea of putting your favorite fabrics around it. You are very fortunate to have a craft/office room of your own.

  7. Great room. Love the saying on the wall. How are the letters attached to the wall. I love my Cricut, great investment!
