It looks like a scene from the A&E show "Hoarders" lol
It took nearly a year, but we got all the stuff sorted and sold the rest on Craigslist. See that white bookcase that on the right? I've actually had that since I was a little kid, it used to be in my room at my childhood home. It went with me to two apartments in college and now has a place in our home =) I found a nearly identical bookcase at Target for about $40 and placed it on the left side of the window to create some symmetry to the room.
Fast forward to early 2012. Long story short, I have wanted to start my own fitness business for quite some time now. After being employed at a job that I was miserable at, I finally took the plunge, quit that job, and decided to work from home to start my business. I wanted to create a separate space for my daily work, so I would feel like I was "going to work" each day with the theory that I would be more productive =) I knew this extra bedroom was the perfect space for this!
Stay tuned for tomorrow's blog that will outline how with the help of my husband and sister, I transformed the room from the picture above to a really fun, inspiring office space. It involved a lot of awesome items from Ikea! Here's a sneak peak:
