A step up for my productivity // my home office

On my most recent lust list, one of the items that made the list was a desk. I had been thinking about creating a dedicated blogging space/home office in my house where I can do my blogging and some of my other work. Normally, I would set up up old desk that I used in my student days anywhere around the house and do my work from there. I decided not to wait to buy the desk from the lust list and work with the desk that I currently have until I can gather enough coins for my dream desk. 

See, in my house I have a little room which I wasn’t using productively till last year when I created my meditation space in that room. I decided to also place by home office in that room. The entire space is being used now and it is my piece of heaven in my house.

Creating the home office
It didn’t cost me a lot to create the space, I used mostly items that I had already owned and just arranged them nicely. The only things I bought were a few decor items and a desk lamp. I used an old desk which I had from my student days, the shelves were already installed. This is what I ended up with…

    I need to create a space like this for myself. More to that I’m interested in the novels featured. Perhaps a mini review?

    1. Lungi

      Oh yes, I can review them. There’s only 1 that I haven’t finished reading though

    Lovely!!! Those books caught my eye! Selasi’s “Ghana Must Go” and Adichie’s “Half of a Yellow Sun”. Both such GREAT reads! 🙂 I have that same glass container where you have put your pens! Mine has makeup brushes! This space sounds dreamy though…! Office space/meditation room- sure sounds indeed like a peaceful haven! 🙂

      I couldn’t finish reading “Ghana must go” – the writing style was too higher grade for me. lol! I loooved “Half of a yellow sun”.
      My little space is currently my favourite space in my house 🙂

    It looks like a great and cool spot. I like how you used what you already have in the house and just arranged it nicely. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Nangamso, I realised that waiting to buy the fancy desk that I want wasn’t going to work out for me, rather I start with what I have.

  8. Ooh, I love that Taiye Selasi and Chimamanda are on your shelf! Two of my faves <3
    Your little space looks really cute, and very conducive for work!
    Well done

      Thank you! I never got around to finishing Taiye Selasi’s book, but Half of a yellow sun was a good read
