My Blog Spot

There's a fun party going on called, "where do you blog" over at Centsational Girl. I thought I'd join in even though most of you have seen the built in nook when I did the reveal.  PLUS, I'm also starting a blog roll, more on that at the end so stick around.
This is the little sitting area off to the side.  The kids use it to pile in and look over each other shoulders when they are all on the computer.  I curl up here and hubby and I look at ideas for our next project!  We haven't decided if we are going to put shelves in the "built in in a built in" yet there on the side.  I often have a tall pitcher of fresh flowers in it but these are from the wedding we just went to.













I actually blog over there on the left. Hey, there's whimages now up on the screen, such a coincidence!  The floor still needs to be poly'd but we haven't gotten to that yet.

I'm shipping this FABULOUS FAN off to Melanie....although it's going to be hard to part with!  Don't forget, there are other vintage goodies in the store over there on the right in the side bar.
Another photo of the left.  That bucket on the right is so cool.  It's from about 1870 and is an incredible enameled ebony brown color.  It holds dog toys, ;-)  If you want to see other photos of the built in nook, you can search it over there on the right or here is a link to the REVEAL

So THIS is where I blog.  It's in the family room, so not always a quiet place but I usually blog VERY early in the a.m. or VERY late in the p.m. so it's my special time!

Your space is lovely! I am so jealous! All of that crown molding and beautiful bead board. And the wall colors are to just die for! Oh and of course the fan! I was excited before - and now I am super excited. It looks fabulous and just what I wanted. Oh thank you my friend! Have a wonderful day!

What a relaxing space! I love how neutral it is, but it's still very interesting because of the texture.

Beth@The Stories of A to Z said...

What a fantastic space! I adore your built-in nook and the way you've personalized it is divine!

beautiful space!

gina3 said...

That is the cutest space! I'm actually going to tell a friend about it because she has a very similar area that could become this special. You must find another fan because that one looks awesome there. Love your light! I have the same one in my entry and I love it. Yours hangs much straighter than ours which has a slight tilt.

Lindsay @ Aisle to Aloha said...

I love that little alcove!!

My house is boring with straight flat walls and no little cubby holes. This is a great space. I love the little bird pillow :).

I saw the new OPI nail polishes btw. They are great. OPI colours aways are. I loved the alice in wonderland collection too. I may raid my piggy bank and get a few of the new ones :).

I am so inspired by your computer nook area! I know I am showing the Mr. we are suppose to remodel/ update our kitchen, this would be dreamy. Nice to meet you via blog land.

jkbunch said...

What were the starting dimensions of this nook?? We have a spot similar to this in our house that we've been wanting to build something in.

Heather Gibb said...

I'd love to know the dimensions you had to work with to. We have 97 inches of wall space in kitchen and my husband wanted a bench and now we wants a desk, so this may be the perfect solution!! So great

Casey said...

I loved this idea so much that I literally printed your pictures and took to my builder for my new home and am getting him to customize it pretty much like yours. Thank you for the inspiration! Be sure to follow my blog to see my post that I will specifically mention you in when the space gets built! :) www.liveloveloft.blogpost.com

Allison said...

Oh my gosh! I just saw this picture on pintrest and followed it to your blog. This is the EXACT thing I want to do for our soon-to-be office nook area, only I hadn't figured it out yet! When I saw your pictures on pintrest, I was so excited!!!! Thanks!

The Mac's House said...

What a neat space, I love it!

Jessica said...

Oh wow! What a great spot! I can't tell you how uninspiring my messing dining room table is;)! Love love love your use of space!

Would be honored to be an addition to your blog roll!

Elizabeth said...

I love your space, I'm currently begging my husband to make me one.

vikki said...

Wow I so love this, now I am trying to figure out where I can put one. I am your newest follower.

Traci@ Beneath My Heart said...

This has to be my favorite closet/office makeover I have seen in blogland!
Fabulous job!

Amy said...

Can you please tell me how deep this space is? I have a dry bar that really wants to become a little office space!
Thank you!

Freyja Colborn said...

Wow I love this idea.I just saw this on pinterest and fell in love with it. I wish I had a space for something like this in my home. It is definitely something I want to remember for when I do do hopefully have the space for it. Thanks for sharing .

Unknown said...

My step-daughter has a closet space like this in her living room where the laundry used to be. My husband has been working on renovating an old built-in to go in the space, but it is seeming almost impossible. Now after seeing these pics, we have decided that creating something like this would be much more useful and beautiful than what was originally planned. My husband is going to replicate this beautiful space for her. Thank you for posting this WONDERFUL idea.

Karen said...

Lovely!
Very inspirational. Thanks for sharing!

Sara Olsen said...

Oh I am jealous, your computer space is very lovely. The small couch on the side is a great idea. Since I have kids who loves to tell stories while on the internet, this could be great to do both, researching and telling stories at the same time. LOL

Michele said...

Love htis space! Do you have plans for the desk and corner seating area?? My husband says he'll build it for me if I can get the plans.

Unknown said...

I love this! I am in the process of having a space built just for a small office nook, and this would be perfect! Do you have any measurements or anything that could help me in recreating it?

site said...

I love this specific! I will be in the process of creating a space developed just for a little office corner, this also can be perfect! Are you experiencing just about any measurements or whatever could help myself throughout recreating that?

Hi, I really love the shade of blue on your wall. I am inspired to use a similar shade for my home. Would you be able to tell me the exact color you used? Thanks!
