Home Office Space - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

Home Office Space

I'm so excited to link up with Schroeder Shenanigans in 2nd and Lucky Little Learners to show you my (newly renovated) home office space!

Now is a good time to tell you... I have been blessed by TpT and opportunities to deliver some professional development, so I will be taking a year off from teaching to pursue these dreams! I will be working from home, creating more and more of what you all love, but will still get the opportunity to work with teachers and students as I deliver professional development across the state, and maybe the country! Coaching and mentoring teachers has been a passion and a dream of mine for a long time, so I am so fortunate that I get to do that this year! (If you're interested in having me out, click here or under my header above!)

So with that happening, I had to have a good place to do all this work, right?! Just a month ago, my office was known as "the dog room." I have two dogs who go into "their houses" (crates) when I leave the house, or when they want to just go in and take a nap, and this room is where their crates are. My desk was in here... but didn't really get used. I liked to sit with my laptop on the sofa at night after school and create. This was REALLY doing a number on my back. It was bad... and now that this is "official," my home office can't be on the sofa! LOL

Welcome to the dog room my office!

As I mentioned, the desk has been there for a while, but not used much. I added a couple of book shelves to hold (almost) all of my books and a cabinet, then decked it out with a PARIS theme! I adore all things Paris, so I figured, why not? (See the Paris pillow in my chair?)

I found the canvas painting at Hobby Lobby for half off, as well as the plates on the shelf!

I just love this print I found at Marshall's! It is my daily reminder! Found the clock and the mini Eiffel at Hobby Lobby, and my mom got me the Scentsy burner a while back!

Now for a close up of my desk...

The two boxes with phrases came from Marshall's as well. That fabulous Georgia print came from my BBB Joanne! And I know minions don't go with the Paris theme, but I just love him. :-P You can also see my obsession with notepads......

#teacherswannaplan I love Blair Turner's desk calendar pad and I'm so excited to use Ta-Doodles Illustrations' TPT Conference Planner and Journal!

I bought these frames at Hobby Lobby, too, and then I made the prints to go in them!

Oh boy... do I dare show you the closet??

Here is just one section that's safe enough for a picture. LOL! Those hanging storage bags are awesome for space savers in a closet!

And before you leave my office, take a look at this adorable little touch I found on Amazon! It's a ceiling fan pull!

I would LOVE to do that one day...just need to get brave enough to make the jump. Maybe next year?
