Master Bedroom Office Area

The pretty part of our Master bedroom was revealed in my last post.  Now I'll show you the area that functions as our office.  We live in a small Cape Cod style house, so this room has to serve a dual purpose.  The computer, printer, file cabinet and desk are needed here.  The not-so-pretty black bookcase is necessary, too, although it will be replaced eventually.  It's too small to hold all my husband's books!

This white wardrobe is great for holding my sewing machine, fabrics and craft necessities.  Thought it was good to share again for Kathleen's White Wednesday party: 

It stands next to the desk, for easy access:

Karen's pretty heart hangs on the knob:

Above the wardrobe sits this framed flea market print, which has such sweet words on motherhood:

I've shown this curtain over the desk in a previous 'sneak peek' post.  I stenciled the fabric with a '1939' design, which is the year our home was built:
Cheesecloth wrapped around the lampshade, and flea market frames hanging on thrift store shutters I painted light gray:

Desk inspiration:

Despite the office space, this room is much more peaceful than it used to be.  Bonne Nuit!
We celebrated our little girl's 4th birthday today!!  Seems like yesterday she came into our lives, and we've been so blessed ever since.  :)

Your white wardrobe is beautiful. I too live in a small house were rooms have to multi-purpose. Your room is very pretty.

There is so much in this post I love! I hope you don't mind if I use your cheese cloth idea. It's my fave blend of the practical and the pretty!

So nice to find a blogger from my side of the country. I'm just north of you in NH and becoming a follower starting today! Happy 4th!

Your wardrobe is so much prettier than mine. I'm hoping my daughter and her husband-to-be will want mine and I can move something else into the bedroom. Thanks for sharing!♥♫

Oh...I love the cabinet! I want one for our bedroom but it is SO small! We couldn't even fit a desk in it!

You have so many pretty details in the room and I really love your 1939 curtains...what a clever and creative idea!

Happy Birthday to your darling!
