The big day is finally here! I get to reveal the space that has me so inspired and I cannot wait to share with you my thoughts and processes to how it ended up the way it did.

What I had initially wanted they gently veered me in another direction and I’m so thankful they did. Before we get started, let’s take a peek at what the office looked like before. There is a similar concept going on, but the desk is smaller, coming out of a different wall, and the adjacent walls didn’t have much going for them in terms of storage or workspace.

I had my sewing machine, surging machine, and cricut all in a closet and rarely used them because they were a pain to drag out. Then when I did drag them out, I had to drag them downstairs to the dining room where I had more space (and outlets).
