Office Switcheroo

Well, I can't ever just leave things alone, so I switched up the office/school room area. It felt a little closed in working with Arilynn on the little side wall, so we decided to try it this way for a while. Until my next genius idea comes...

The office side...
I was perusing this picture trying to remember where I got it all because a lot of it came from Goodwill and yard sales. The dresser came from my neighbor's trash. We had arrived back home from church and I was looking out the kitchen window when I spotted it. Down we ran and carried it back up...in my heels. I was too afraid to take the time to change because someone might grab it. :) Fresh coat of paint and new hardware and voila!
I also got the mail scales at a yard sale. I painted the "office" sign and it is available in my Etsy shop.
The desk was snagged at an auction for $2. Cleaned it up and gave it a fresh coat of paint, as well. The yellow storage box and tool shed picture are both thrift store purchases.
I made the eye chart using a paper from Cavallini. I just had Wes cut and stain a board and then staple the paper to it. Added twine to hang it. They sell them on Etsy and Ebay, but I found mine in one of those "unique" stores.

Wes spotted these galvanized tins at HomeGoods while we were on vacation. He thought we needed them and I didn't argue. HA!
The little glass jars came from Goodwill, but IKEA sells them.
My newest sign-"Greatly Blessed." Great for fall or anytime!

Thanks for stopping by!
