Amy at The Blissful Bee found that working out of the home is sometimes challenging, especially if your work space doesn’t feel like an office and you feel like you never leave the house. (I can certainly relate!!) So she decided to make her home office a defined space to give herself a separate place to escape to while she works.
Since Amy and her husband both work from home, right across from each other actually, they needed a very large desk. It actually worked out perfectly because they were able to use their massive dining table from their old house as their “new” desk. She didn’t want to get rid of the table and was so happy to realize it would work perfectly as a desk. Because the table is much deeper than most desks, it allows for both Amy and her husband to have leg room without bumping into each other, and it also allows for plenty of computer room.
Amy used several vintage pieces as storage, and additional storage is important since they live in a 1940’s home with less than 1,000 square feet.
She did such a fantastic job on decorating her home office, don’t you think? Click here to see lots more of this room makeover.

Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
I hope you’ll join me on my DIY and decorating journey! If you want to follow my projects and progress, you can subscribe below and have each new post delivered to your email inbox. That way you’ll never miss a thing!

I’m loving the blog..wanted to share a 5% coupon code (OFF5052908) I received from a company called Skypanels. You might wanna look into them. Anyway, they said I could share it with anyone in case you or anyone you know wants to use it. Keep up the good work! 🙂

That’s lovely, I’d clear coat the top of the desk with DrawItPaint Whiteboard paint so you always have a spot to scribble down notes when something comes to mind.
