wonderfully made: Office/guest room - phase one

Office/guest room - phase one

Since I'm about 90% done with phase one of what is currently my office/closet, I decided to give you a peek into the room where all of these posts are created!

I call it phase one because this will eventually become a guest room. We have my parent's full size bed frame, but no mattress, which is why the transformation hasn't been made yet. I'm not complaining, though, because it's nice to have a room for crafts, dressing, blogging, and sewing. Mark gets his own room, so why can't I?!

I say this room is only 90% done because for the most part, I don't think anything is ever fully done in my mind. I'd like to add some more wall decor as well as update the curtains eventually. I'm always moving things around!

Here's a quick tour:

I bought this rolling rack a few years ago at the Crate and Barrel outlet. I finally pulled it out to hold some of my more fun clothes and just serve as some extra storage. I just rotate clothes whenever I feel like it and it usually makes me happy to see them hanging there!

My mom is loaning me her Singer sewing machine. It is simple but does the trick. The user's manual dates to 1947!

My desk area is definitely my favorite. I bought the desk off craigslist a few years ago and painted it grey. The paint has worn with use but I haven't fixed it yet. I think it gives it a little character! 

I loooooooove these candles from the one and only Target. Looks like this one is running low so time for a new one! :) Those journals on the right were a gift from Mark for our one year anniversary (paper). Love them!

That's a wrap!
