I haven’t blogged about the Mom Cave in awhile, mostly because there hasn’t been anything of interest to share. That is, until I went to IKEA this weekend. Suffice to say, I went to IKEA looking for some cabinets to tame the mess that is our garage, and walked out with everything but that.
My office is a great little nook, tucked away in the back corner of our basement, just beyond our media area. I love having a dedicated space (besides the kitchen) that is all mine. There is lots of storage and everything a mom could want in a dedicated space. Best part – it has doors.
Then I painted it and added a great stencil ala Hobby Lobby.
And this is how it sat, except I had the armoire there – but I can’t find any pictures of that!
I just really wasn’t digging on the armoire in this space – it just didn’t work and didn’t fit.
So, I’ve had some ideas spinning in my head for awhile for this nook and the office in general. I have been thinking that this area would be great for some shelves and maybe some sort of built-ins or credenza along the bottom.
And then I came upon some lovely shelves at IKEA that fit the bill. Literally. They were $20 each – it just doesn’t get much better than that.
The chairs are temporary, until I find something to put beneath them (or my boys steal them and put them back in the media room
I also scored a new desk chair that looks as if it was made for this space. Isn’t it fun?
I just love it when an unplanned plan comes together.
Have you found any unintended discoveries lately?
