Home Office Debut!

Our family's former breakfast nook is now my home office. It spans an area of 64 square feet. Just enough space for a printer, two cabinets, a glass top table/desk, a chair on wheels, a side tray/table, a magazine rack, and two old wicker chairs. My "corner window office" even has an ocean-like view of our pool!

Around the corner of the nook is a large table my husband constructed. It doubles as a homework table for my kids and a packaging/shipping table for Across the room, under the stairwell, is a former play room that now serves as a storage room for small inventory items and shipping supplies. There is also another desk, storage unit, lamp and larger inventory items.

As I venture out into the small business world, I often wonder if this how Martha Stewart, Mary Engelbreit, Rachel Ashwell and others began. The challenge is balancing family and business all under the same roof!

Thanks to all who have visited and commented on my office re-do! More photos in video below!

Your new office is just dreamy. I am not sure I would get any work done for just wanting to sit and look around at all the cute pink stuff! Love your candy holder - I have tow of these sugar holders with the scoops still in the original silver, it never occured to me to paint them, maybe I will paint one, who knows. Love your office redo, so inspiring!

Hi Cindy,
I visited a couple of days ago and left a message for you but for some reason it hasn't come up.

I just wanted you to know that I am totally inspired by your office make-over. It all looks so pretty and it makes me want to clean up and redecorate my studio too.

You made it look just lovely like the rest of what I have seen of your home.
I started in the craft business when my daughter was 2 years old so I can see how challenging it is for you have four children. I only had one. Boy that was many years ago.
