house tour tuesday: our nook

hi friends!

hope everyone had a great weekend. i spent the weekend in San Diego for a bachelorette party for a good friend of mine. we had a blast!

we had such a blast, that i completely overlooked house tour tuesday. whoops!

so, since i didn’t set up a tour of a house in time to take pictures for today, i took some pictures of our nook in our house.

it’s a small space, located in the kitchen. when we first moved into our little house we used it in the traditional way of a small dining area. it worked for what we needed, but it was quite squished when we had company over.

so, after rearranging some rooms around last Christmas, this little space became our office area. it works much better for our family.

it gives me a place to gift wrap, or get crafty. and it gives my husband an area to do our bills (not so fun for him, but practical).

there is also a little area for our son to eat lunch, or paint, or play chalk on his chalkboard table.

across from the desk is a message center that lets me organize invitations.

or display quotes that speak to me.

or cute little tags from my favorite store in Old Towne Orange (Eikon Home).

across from the message center is a little shelf that i found at Homegoods (love that store!). i painted it blue and distressed it.

and then filled it with some of my vintage moonstone dishes,

and old spoons my dad gave me that were my great grandfathers from the early 1900’s.

i topped it with a few keepsakes from our wedding (the starfish were our party favors for our guests).

and because no room is complete in our home without a skeleton key. i added some of those, too, hanging from the old ironing board door that is original to the house (i love all of the nooks and crannies old houses have!).

thanks for stopping by! have a great week!
