Hey pals!
Made a few changes to the Cotton Stem Cottage she shed office this week, and my old lady back is thanking me already!  You see, I’d been using a random console table as my desk and a pretty (but pretty unsupportive) dining room chair as my desk chair sitch.  Needless to say, my back was killing me after a day in the office, so it was time for a change.  I waited until these pieces were on 60% off in store and online, and I ventured out to test drive them in person.  Loved the comfortable support of the adjustable chair, and the desk provides the extra work space I was needing.  This little duo spruced up the office for a quick refresh, and my lower back will hopefully be much happier now, ha!

Linking up the new desk and office chair my Instagram buddies helped me choose recently, along with a few other things you see in the she shed.  Funny how changing just a few pieces makes and simply rearranging things I already had in the space makes it feel new and refreshed!  Thanks for stopping by the she shed today, friends!

    The desk works so well with the legs of the chair! The legs seemed so much lighter in the stories a few weeks ago. Great job! Lovely, inspiring space.

    I’m totally with ya on the not having your back to the door arrangement. I would feel like someone could sneak up on me at any moment.

  7. Megan says:

    Where did you get the curtains for the she shed? They’re perfect!

  8. Jolynn says:

    Quick Q….. do you have to climb over or under to get to the other side? 😊😊. It is a stunning space!!!!

  9. Melanie says:

    Ok am I crazy? I don’t see how you get to the desk. Do you have to go under?! Lol

  10. Annie says:

    Love love love it!!

  11. Rhonda says:

    Looks beautiful but looks like you can’t get to your chair. 😌

  12. Erin Pierce says:

    Yes… Please share with us how can you actually get to your lovely new chair! I don’t see but more than an inch on either side of the lovely new desk. It also looks like there probably isn’t enough length on the side walls to put the desk there.
    Still STUNNING as always !

  13. Marms says:

    Looks very nice!

  14. Kathy says:

    Lovely! How do you get to the chair?

  15. Kathy says:

    I’m guessing you pull the table out, slide in and slide it all back? Love the curtains!

  16. Jamie says:

    I bet you can guess my question! LoL!!
    How in the world do you get to the chair?!
    It’s beautiful….

  17. Susan says:

    Erin; I get it… butt on the desk, sing ya legs over to the other side!(?) I’m thinking Mr Stems will be putting in a new little back door! Lol. Erin I totally agree w/you about not changing things “all the time”. Simplicity and small changes are just as beautiful (and sometimes even more beautiful) then big changes all the time! Save your energy girl and be creative in small ways. We don’t want to loose you because you’ve burnt yourself out.

  18. I love the refresh! I have had that desk for years and its such a perfect size! You’ll love it! Beautiful job Erin!!!

  19. Morgan says:

    I love following along with you, Erin! You were one of my main inspirations to start my own blog. Thank you for putting yourself out there and always being a positive, kind influence! -Morgan

    Love your new space! Please share your source for that gorgeous succulent trough. Are they real or faux?

  21. Savannah says:

    I’m so jealous of your She Shed! I’m trying to convince my husband that I need one, too. The refresh looks lovely!

  22. Tina says:

    Could you please share the wall color?
    Beautiful and calming environment!

  23. Les Proctor says:

    What a stunning space. What stain color did you use on the floating shelves?

  24. Adrienne says:

    Do you have Air conditioning in your space? if so, how did you do that? we have a shed in our backyard and i would love to make it into an office for me or my hubby. your eye for decorating is such a gift. i love that you are sharing it to inspire and help others!

  25. Sereta says:

    Is it air conditioned or have air flow or is it just the windows?

  26. Hi,

    I love this design. Can you tell me where the desk and chair came from? The links do not work:(

    Thank you,
