New Workspace! (Before and After)
If you saw my workspace inspiration post you know I have been shopping for items for my loft/office space. I was able to find some great deals and it was surprisingly easy to find things to match my chosen color palette.
I am 100% NOT an interior designer. I buy things strictly based on what I think will work in my space and if it happens to look terrible, oh well, and if it ends up looking fabulous, I am pleasantly surprised. I know I'm not at the fabulous stage, but I'm slightly above terrible and that's good enough for me for now. I'm a work in progress, as is everything else.
Let's first look at what the space was before.
I knew the space needed to be functional so the idea of getting a keyboard, mouse and monitor for my 12-inch macbook was crucial. Using that as my starting point I logically followed that with a desk, a desk chair, a desk lamp, and then to fill the space and utilize it well I came up with the idea of Poshmark. I've been selling my gently used clothes on Poshmark for over a year and I'm trying to get better at it. This space, in addition to the desk area, will also be used for staging all of my Poshmark sales. I bought a clothing rack to hang my unwanted items on and a storage cabinet to house all my shipping materials as well as the printer I use to print shipping labels. The chair is comfy and I figured when I need a spot to read or just generally hang out and be near my kids, the rest of the area could be a quasi living space. For that I decided I needed an area rug, a few storage ottomans, and a side table.
It's not finished by any means but I couldn't wait any longer to share it. Some last minute finishes still need to be done; like curtains over the ugly vertical blinds that cover the sliding glass door to a balcony, and I'd like to get a full length mirror in order to photograph outfits for the blog. So yeah... that will come with time since I'm going to be leaving for a month-long training class next week (more on that in a future post).

I'm happy with the direction the space is going. I've been able to utilize the space already and I'm looking forward to adding things to it to make it even better.
