I wish I knew how to make my camera take bright photos. Any tips anyone? This is my workspace and ALL of it (with the exception of my computer) was purchased on a budget. A very TIGHT budget. But, especially as a freelance designer, I spend a lot of time at this little place. So, it has to be a place I enjoy being.
I got this lamp off clearance for $8, the squirrel for $5, and the vintage alarm clock for $2.
I honestly think my husband thought I'd gone too far when I brought Howard home. But, he keeps me company.
A vintage suitcase purchased for a few dollars at an estate sale a few years ago.
I'm still searching for one a little flatter. But, I'm keeping this one around in the meantime.
My second favorite, a mustard yellow office chair, totally vintage and absolutely free.
A flag garland made from burlap and leftover fabric scraps from my grain sack pillows.
This craigslist find is my favorite piece of furniture I own. It was a bit of a splurge for me at $200. But, it was already finished, is solid wood, and was custom-built for the previous owner. I've been searching for some antique, mustard yellow knobs, but have yet to fall in love. But, this is a refuge I don't mind working in.
