This year, my hubby wanted to give a Christmas gift to his work colleagues, but our budget is very small, so we decided to make them these thoughtful and inexpensive home made gifts. They were very simple to make and we
It’s this time of the year again: wrapping Christmas gifts, I will be doing all my family’s gift wrapping this year but I dislike this task. You know, all those Christmas gift displays you see in magazines or in the stores, well my gifts never look like that. Every year this task becomes an adventure I try to avoid for the Holidays but I can’t. So, this Christmas I decided to
When Christmas is just around the corner, we start using our crafty skills, we take out our hot glue gun, our miter saw, our tapes, paint brushes and of course our Christmas ornaments.

We have 3 bedrooms in our house, one is used as our master bedroom, the second is our son’s bedroom and the third one is also used for our son as a play room (where we store a lot of his toys).
Since, I have no space for a dedicated home office, I have used a nook in our basement to create this well-organized and functional home office.
The desk, the shelves, the chair, the magnetic boards, the boxes and the stool are all from IKEA. The pockets are from the Martha Stewart (with Avery-at-Staples)Collection.
The white boxes are very useful because they are used as a storage solution, I was able to organize our papers and our little knickknacks are no longer displayed in our kitchen table.
Because this space is in our basement and I like to keep it light, I choose not to paint this wall, but maybe before winter arrives I might consider a warmer tone of color for this wall and a different lamp.
With a little imagination, a tight budget and some nice accessories found around the house, I am happy to have finally created my pretty little home office and to share it with you.
Please, keep an eye out because soon I will be revealing new DIY projects around the house.

Every time, I look at the Ikea catalogs, I dream about their living rooms, the ones I would love to have, the furniture that I would love to purchase because their way of living always seems comfortable, functional and family oriented. We picked this very comfortable and generous Ikea KIVIT white sofa over two years ago, we still use it every day because it’s durable and their slipcovers are washable (very easy with a 14 month old boy)
