Over the past few years the DH and I have been working on remodeling our little home. It was/is much needed, but that story is for another time. Part of the new layout included an office for ME. An honest to goodness space where I could have all my crafty things, desk and computer, and all the happiness I cared to cram in. :D
I also made myself an end table. We had ordered some wire for the electrical and it came on a big wooden spool. Frugality inspired me and I decided this was a great opportunity for a DIY. The top of the table is a crochet mandala type piece while the bottom/side is a simple stockinette knit stitch. The bottom and top of the piece is lined with fleece to 1. protect the floors and 3. hide the uneven wood through the crochet part.
I admit, this project was also an opportunity to use up any old yarn dye lots that aren't sold anymore. As you'll soon see, I still have a lot left!
Kind of like me, my decoration style is a bit well, colorful. I chose to have a white room or blank canvas if you will where I could splatter a lot of color onto.
Not with paint, but the items I chose to put in my room.
To the left I knit an ottoman/footstool at serves dual purpose. I can put my feet up to relax or pull out a blanket that I've stuffed inside! No need to by any poly-fiber fill for me!
An old bookshelf holds many of my other craft tools, but I'll admit not everything is moved down yet.
Below is my awesome desk area. I bought my desk on Overstock.com and absolutely love it. :D The future will hold a mounted computer screen and some more decorating.
