Under the stairs


under the stairs

Yay! Things are finally starting to take shape in this awkward little corner under the stairs. I love it!

The new desk is just perfect for the space. It’s nice and sturdy, looks lovely, and, best of all, it fits (you wouldn’t believe how many nice- looking desks I had to reject because they were too big)!!! Next up… a shelf and an office chair. Oh, and finding some way to hide all those cables!

We’re not planning on renovating the open plan living room, dining room, hallway, stairs, and landing for another few years since it’s such a massive project, so I’ll have to live with the fuddy duddy wallpaper and green carpet a while longer, but I’m oh so happy to have my little blogging hub under the stairs!

Happy days!
