Yesterday I told you about how we converted our dining room to an office a couple of years ago. I realized that I never posted anything before about this room here at Southern State of Mind, so I thought I’d share today!
I really loved having a formal dining room. It felt so great to hosting family and friends in a formal dining room during the holidays.
However, we seriously only used it 3-4 times a year.
Now, if you are in a big ol’ house, a formal dining room makes sense!
Don’t get me wrong- I totally envy you!
But for my family…
in our current stage of life…
in our one-story ranch…
it really wasn’t the best use of space so we made some changes!
With just a couple trips to the local Ballard Designs outlet,
we purchased a few new pieces of furniture to create a home office
and never looked back!
Enjoy the tour!

I struggle with styling the book shelves because
they need to be functional and pretty.
Here is the latest set-up.
Recognize that driftwood?
The chalkboard globe was a craft project from a couple months back.
