For months I've been wanting my own at-home work space--nothing fancy or frilly, just a little nook for blogging, paying bills, or grading papers. I've pinned tons of inspirational pictures and had a pretty good idea of how I wanted the space to look. Then, one day scrolling through Instagram, I saw a picture of a work space using a sofa table as a desk. The table in the picture was very much like the sofa table I painted last summer. You can see the entire transformation and my homemade chalk paint recipe here. The table was originally my grandparents'.

After being inspired by those Instagram pictures, I began rearranging my tables to see if I could make a work space for myself. The table I was using for a night stand swapped places with the sofa table in the living room. And, it worked out pretty well!

If you like the idea of a small work space in your bedroom too, here are a few other ways to pull it off.

Starting with blue and white, of course! :-)

Do any of you have a work space in your bedroom?

I hope you all have a great weekend! I'm headed to the prom tonight, again! I think it will be my 20th time...



  1. Kathryn, I love how you painted the table! It is a perfect bedside desk because it is slim and doesn't take up too much room. I also love that you have a desk with a view! Hope you had fun at the prom--I'm sure it is fun to see the changing fashions year to year! Also, I loved the Southern Living blue and white Easter eggs you posted on Instagram, so I added them as a weekend link on the blog. :)

  2. Hey Elizabeth,
    Thank you for including me in your post! :-) I haven't tried the eggs yet, but I want to. And yes, the prom is always something to behold. Some of the prettiest dresses you can imagine. Have a great weekend!
