Ready for another office peek?
Opposite side of the room today with a tray
set for one and a little more sunshine to
brighten this wintry day.
Enjoying dinner on my comfy office couch
that I told you about in yesterday's post.
The furniture in my office was meant to go in the living room
of a rental home on Lake Erie, but instead ended up in
my storage shed. Piece by piece, I brought the extra
furniture inside and found a place for the pieces I couldn't
bare to part with. The couch came from a furniture store
going out of business and was covered with an ugly and
inexpensive fabric. I reupholstered it in denim using
coordinating fabrics for the pillows.
The inspiration piece for this room at the lake, and later
in my office, was this beautiful picture of a sailboat I
acquired from my sister.
My trayscape is also inspired by the painting and sailboat
theme, from the blue and white boat-shaped bowl, to
the matching homemade napkins.
The dinner plate is a lovely octagonal ironstone plate
purchased from Goodwill.
The salad plate~ made by Windsor Browne ~
another Goodwill purchase.
This sweet little boat dish produced by Chantal,
was a slightly pricier purchase from Goodwill,
but of obvious quality.
The napkins were made from fabric purchased at a thrift
store and the stemware was purchased at a yard sale
last summer. The lovely white tray was a long
ago purchase for the lake house.
Window treatments are shutters covering the bottom half
of the window for privacy and a board-mounted valance,
made to match the pillows.
Rounding the corner of the room is my beautiful hutch,
also continuing the sail boat theme ~ but now I'm
getting ahead of myself ~ that's a reveal
for another day.
