Our little office space is slowly coming together! A while back I purchased a light fixture from Highland Row Antiques that I simply couldn't pass up because the color story was so perfect! But before I show you how it turned out, allow me to introduce you to the real star of this show - my little Raskog cart.
This little cart has been coveted by people all over the country who have seen it everywhere on the web, the IKEA catalog, and beyond. But alas ... the issue of limited stock has reared its ugly head, and disappointed many. How did I get it? No magic involved. I got the very last one off the shelf after stalking it for months (back in June). The moral of the story? Be aggressive. B-E aggressive! In other news, here's how I dressed her up!
I borrowed some stuff from our Billy Jader to see exactly what Raskog was capable of.
From left to right:
- Ice bucket - Crate and Barrel
- My special wine glass that I use for parties (it has rings of color so that I don't have to use a wine glass marker)
- Michael Graves bar set from Target
- Lambee - I gave him to Brandon when we were dating
- Martini recipe glass set - a wedding gift from my maid of honor
- Martini shaker - CB2
- Margarita glasses - Pier 1
- Wine decanter - a wedding gift from a family friend
- Small drink glasses - CB2
- Cloth napkins - Target
And here she is making her office debut.
And in case you were wondering how our vintage the light is suspended, I used an old-school lime green Hemma cord kit. I'm hoping to flatten that cord out eventually. I'm not totally sure if the bar accessories will stay on the cart though. I may end up loading it up with books or miscellaneous items down the road. Initially, I wanted the cart to store my sewing machine and fabrics. That idea went out the window with the curtains I never finished (no pun intended). I'll have you know that I hung them anyway - they're just missing a hem. Maybe I'll get super bored (and super patient) and finish them so that I can share. :) Anyhoo, what do you think of our cute, little office nook?
