Where do you blog?

Kate over at Centsational Girl is having an impromptu Linky Party asking, “Where Do You Blog?”

I have recently added a little office space to the living room. Once we moved our rooms around a while back, I lost my desk and have been missing it. So I looked around the house searching for spot where I could house an office. I don’t need a whole room for this but just a corner. I felt like the living room was the best option. So once I decided on the space it was time to figure out what kind of desk.

To figure out what size/shape the desk needed to be, I set up a mock table…

So I liked the way the taller piece would work with the sofa. Oh and check out the lamp I scored from my Mom – that used to be my grandparents. I remember it being in their bedroom for YEARS!

So after a little assembly I had a super sleek cool desk!

Now for some accessories and my laptop = instant workspace!

I really like the way it turned out. I’m still in search of a shade for the lamp. But boy oh boy lampshades aren’t that easy to come by! Also still thinking about adding some kind of artwork or bulletin board behind the desk - nice and low. But still on the fence. What do you think?

So that’s the official blog spot – ha! blogspot that was funny. But to keep it real you will most likely find us like this when blogging.

  6. Oh so jealous of your IKEA. Living in Hawaii does not afford such luxuries! :) Love the new desk and your little blogging spot. Also, that peacock blue wall color is fabulous! :) Clicked over from the link party!

  7. It looks great, and in fact, as if it was planned to be part of the room, all along.

  10. What a cute, functional little space! I love it. But it's so not fair that your IKEA is 15 minutes away! Ours? 5 hours. Yeah. Enjoy IKEA and enjoy your blogging space!

  11. Great use of space. And since it's right "there" you'll be incentivized (?) to keep it all crisp and clean like that. That sectional looks just like the one my sister had from Storehouse! Loved that thing.

  12. I think it's adorable! I love the picture of you and hubby. Is your coffee table from IKEA too? I fell in love with that!

  13. Love the pic of you and your husband...so typical...or at least around here! ;)

  14. I think a pic would be great a nice vintage black and white one of something industrial up really close 11x14 frame with 8x10 photo or maybe up both one frame/picture size. That is my two cents!
