Office Update

This week was supposed to be the reveal of my home office make-over, but as you can see, I am no where close to being finished. The room is tiny, and it has turned out to be quite the challenge. But I am hopeful that it will be finished in the next week or so. If not, I will keep plugging away at it until I'm finished. Here's what I've done so far....

  I removed all the contents from the room except for the file cabinet. I needed extra storage really bad, so I had to come up with a creative but  inexpensive solution to solve my storage dilemma. So here's what I did.

I brought back the existing file cabinet and  added the black cabinet, which I snagged from another part of the house. The plan is to paint both cabinets green, then place a piece of 1x2 on top of the cabinets, in order to create a shelf. 

 The layout of the office will basically be the same as it was before, with the exception of adding extra storage and seating. So, the make-ship desk was returned to it's original spot in the office. I needed to do something to spruce up this bland, boring, and naked desk, because she had the BLUES!

So, I rummaged through my fabric stash and decked her ( the desk) out with this piece of fabric. What do you think?  I love how all the bright colors add a bit of cheer to the space. I also think this fabric will be a great starting point to build the rest of the room around. Below are a few pics of how the space is evolving.

You know my motto, "every room needs a little animal print." Ha!Ha! Ha! 

Thanks for stopping by!

2 your home,



  1. I can't wait to see the rest of it!

  2. I know how you feel, Lory! I've been trying to finish two rooms in our house for the past year. I decided that I wasn't going to rush. I have taken my time browsing the internet for inspiration and finding the look for less at thrift stores. I wish you luck as you continue to decorate your office. I know once your through it will be a space you love!

  3. Thanks Brandi, I am going to do just as you said take my time and not rush. The office is coming together slowly, but this way I can get exactly what I want and not compromise. By the way Happy Mother's Day!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.

My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Chat soon...
