"Mom I'm Going To the Office"

My crap craft room was beginning to look like an episode of Hoarders.  While Mr. Dork and the Littles were away recently, I gave it a good Mary Poppins-type clean up.
And while I was repainting some furniture
I fixed up Little V with her own office in my workspace.  The desk was an unloved, $5.00 thrift store find.  I gave it some fresh white paint and new knobs plus some vinyl shelf paper for the top.
(I scored that stool at Ikea months ago.) 
I loaded up those drawers with craft supplies. I was thinking that *maybe* I could have six minutes uniterrupted if she had her own space to raid instead of mine.  I didn't know how the whole thing would fly with a two year old, but she actually quite likes it.
Because I gave her
button jars of her own. 
Now she likes to tell me, "Mom, I'm going to the office!"

Awww! What a great idea!!! When I get a craft room instead of the kitchen table (hopefully soon) I am definately going to do that!!!

Looks great! Very clever to give V her own desk :)

So love it! What girl wouldn't be thrilled with her very own button jars? I have 3 (or 4) myself. ;)

what is it about buttons?? My two year old is also fascinated by them. How fun the little desk is!
