I pray about most everything.
I really think God cares about even the smallest details of our life.
So, of course I prayed about my home office makeover.
I asked God to give me creative ideas and bargain prices, and He did!
First of all the color scheme is very soft and neutral.
I chose soft gray walls, a soft white for the furnishings, and a tiny bit of black here and there. Soothing…
I also tried to keep it simple and not overcrowded.
The nine drawer dresser was a craigslist bargain and stores my office and craft supplies.
On the wall above it is a $10 IKEA mirror and two metal wire baskets found on clearance at TJMaxx.
I wanted vintage chicken feeders for shelves,
but I’m very happy with this look for now.
I’ll keep looking for those feeders though!
On top of the dresser is a vintage German scale given to me by a lady in our church some years ago.
The little wooden box holds the smaller weights for the scale.
The shell ball is from a shell shop in Seaside, Oregon.
I’m still looking for a cheap thrift store frame that I can paint white for the painting I did.
I bought two IKEA Billy bookshelves.
What a blessing when we went to pick them up and found out that they were on sale for $20 off each one!
Another blessing was that three young guys from church put them together for me and anchored them to the wall, so little granddaughters are protected from falling shelves.
Here’s my desk, you can read more about it’s makeover here.
Here’s my little prayer bench with the P R A Y mobile I made hanging over it.
We don’t have tv at all downstairs in the living area of our home,
so there’s one here on top of my file cabinet, and one in an armoire in our bedroom.
I decided I’m content with the simplicity of a white throw blanket over the comfy chair until or if I find an inexpensive slipcover.
I’m very happy with my quiet, peaceful space, and really believe it’s an answer to my prayers!
