Living in a one-bedroom apartment is challenging sometimes. Working from home is awesome and I love my apartment, but I won’t lie, it would be lot easier if I had a whole room to devote to projects. Some place where I can make a mess and have space to spread out. That’s not the case around here. Luckily I was able to carve out a little corner of my living room.
If you’re not so sure about where to set up shop in your own home, there’s always co-working companies like WeWork that have cool rental spaces where you can set up and function as a small company. There’s also the added benefit of networking.
This is where I work. I spend most of my day here. I write and edit photos in my favorite chair, craft and sew at my handy dandy gate leg table, and I store a whole bunch of stuff on those shelves and in the drawers. It really is about as functional as I can get in such a confined spot. My only problem is organization.
I have plans though! I’m going to give this space a little makeover. Since it’s in my living room, I need to make it look less random and more put together. I want to hide the spray cans and messy paint bottles.
Pegboard, hooks, and baskets are going to become part of this corner very soon. Fingers crossed it’ll solve some of my organizational problems!
Stay tuned for the new and improved work space. Coming soon to a blog near you.
