Re-vamping a small space.

Thank you to Cost Plus World Market for providing me with some of the decor + furniture for this post.

After finishing the kitchen remodel, Andrew and I were trying to decide what to do with the small space off the kitchen.  Luckily Andrew’s mom is super great at interior design and she helped us come up with a plan for the area using the Super Natural Collection & Small Spaces Guide.

It all started with a trip to Cost Plus World Market one Sunday after church (if you are thinking, “those pants look like a party and I want them!” …they’re from Stitch Fix!)

I’m overwhelmingly pumped about how the space turned out.  Like I mentioned, the space is right off our kitchen and you walk through this space to get to our garage.  So it’s not really a room, it really is more just like an area lol.  Does that make sense?  So I didn’t really know how to make it functional and welcomed the help of Andrew’s mom.

When standing in our kitchen, the room originally looked like a whole lotta emptiness…

BUT (!) now when I standing in the kitchen I see…

The specifics on what we put in the space are numbered below.

  1. Patchwork Dhurrie Pouf
  2. Metal Edge Laptop Desks
  3. Oversized Ivory Mongolian Faux Fur Lumbar Pillow
  4. Charcoal Gray Carlin Wingback Chairs
  5. White Marble Mix & Match Wall Shelf
  6. Antique Brass & Glass Curio Box
  7. Glass & Faux Leather Vase
  8. Walnut Wood Tripod Austin Floor Lamp Base
  9. Linen Floor Lamp Shade
  10. White Parker Grommet Top Curtains
  11. Gray Dome Curtain Rod

Andrew’s mom had the brilliant idea to push together four of the laptop desks to make a coffee table.  It’s great because when we have friends over everyone can pull apart the coffee table to have somewhere to place their drink/plate based on where they’re sitting in the house.

I’m also excited I finally have a space for my favorite succulent & the best books (aka my fav cookbook + Dr. Seuss).

And one of my favorite things in this entire space is probably the glass + leather vase.  I will judge how together my life is by the number of weeks out of the year I have non-dying flowers in it.

So.  That’s the space.  I’m in love with it.  I love that the space is now a cozy place where I can blog/read blogs/read a book/hangout with Andrew/etc.

All Andrew and I have left to finish of the house remodel is our half bath.  SO CLOSE TO BEING DONE!  We started demo-ing the half bath this weekend (and I overshared on IG stories.  Also.  I’m 98% sure I’m done with Snapchat for forever.)

Anyways.  I hope you’re inspired to re-vamp a small space in your home :)  Just so you know, Cost Plus World Market is hosting a Sweepstakes where one lucky winner will receive $5,000 WM shopping spree and 3 other winners will receive $1,000 WM giftcards.  You can find the details here.

  1. I adore your space!! It’s so fun, organized, and full of unique finds. I love the rug and how the shelves draw your eye upward, giving the space more height. I hope that makes sense. ;) I hope to one day do this in our home! We’re currently living in a town home, but when we decide to make the leap into home ownership, this will be a dream of mine. :)

  2. you made my monday!! THANK YOU!! xoxoxo
    and this space is absolutely gorgeous.

  3. OMG I LOVE!!! I have an awkward small space that I am so confused with and you’ve totally inspired me!

  4. Super cute! Love what you’ve done with it!

  5. THOSE PANTS! ? Loooove Stitch Fix (mostly because I kind of hate clothes shopping!)

    • I’m loving stitch fix too! They send me way more fun clothes than I could find on my own.

      ohh and I’ve started giving stitch fix giftcards to friends for their birthdays!

  6. Ooh, it’s perfect! Y’all did a great job!
