Home Office Space Sneak Peek

I am so excited to be linking up with the awesome duo that is Ashley and Angie. They are 2 of my most favourite and inspirational blogging celebrities and together they are a force to be reckoned with! 

This month's #togetherwearebetter link up gives all of our readers a sneak peak inside of our home offices so come on in and take a peek…

About 2 months ago we moved house. We lost a bedroom but gained some out buildings and one of them has an office space on the top floor. As soon as we saw this, I claimed it for mine! It has wifi, heating and a TV arial- I don't know about you but I work best in front of the TV! 

The only problem is….I've been locked out! Mr T put all of my school stuff in there on moving day and then-poof- lost the key!!!!! I have been pulling my hair out looking for it but until today, link up day no less (how spooky!), I had been unsuccessful! I was gutted- laminator, paper cutter, books, CDs- THE LOT- all locked inside! 
Apart from having separation anxiety from not being able to cut and laminate like a fiend, my main panic was about this link- up! I really wanted to take part but had no office space to speak of- this is where I have been working…
yep, in bed watching 'Once upon a time' on Netflix (anyone else obsessed with this show?). 
So, as I said, I have been locked out until today! 
Here is what awaited me-
It really is bigger than it looks on these pics!
I have grand plans for this space but I think my first job will be going through all of the boxes and figuring out just exactly what I've got!

As you can see, I have a red sofa-bed in there which I intend to curl up on with my laptop and a cup of tea- I'm not much of a 'sitting at a desk' kind of worker- how about you? 
I've also got my TV ready to set up- no Netflix but DVD's are just as good. 

I've picked out an area for my desktop computer,  printer, laminator and cutter- perfect for all those TpT product tests runs! 

The things I'm most excited about are 
1) Keeping my work clutter out of the house

I've got my colour scheme all picked out- 
I've got to work with the red sofa so figured a nautical theme with hints of mustard and teal would work well. I've also got some lovely teacher-themed prints from The Night Owl  all set to frame because, let's face it, who doesn't love an inspirational quote or 2?! 

I've loved linking up with the ladies of Schroeder Shenanigans in 2nd and Lucky Little Learners and I hope you've enjoyed a sneak-peak inside my mess of an office- to look around some more (organised!) teacher's office spaces then click on the links below.

  2. I was pinning away for such type of blogs, thanks for posting this for us.Carlton Business Centre

  3. Great to see the work in progress. The color scheme is awesome, my wife and I would have done the exact same thing. Lots of work to still be done but you will soon love the new home office space. Working from home is so rewarding I can always get more done than at the office, always prefer it. Congrats.
