Wine and Benner Fit Office Renovations

Sometimes you just need to drink some wine and build furniture, you know? We love Benner Fit. Clearly, that's a thing. We're into it. We love you guys, blablabla. You know that business already. But behind the scenes Sydney and I have both had a few undesirable office situations. Not to say they weren't functional and we aren't incredibly lucky for what we have, but Syd's been blogging off of an iPad and I've been on an ancient PC which was dying a slow death. And sometimes after a long day it takes an inspirational workspace to get your blogging on.  Out of our love of Benner Fit, it was time we both made a change for efficiency and quality's sake. Spring has sprung and it's been a rebirth of our new Benner Fit office spaces!

It all began with a trip to Ikea. (That sounds like the beginning of a horror story... or a break up... something awful...) Rewind! A few months back I wanted to be inspired with a new workspace. I was scouring Pinterest seeing things like this:

{shut up...}

{stop it...}

{I hate you... no, I love you!}

So I made a spontaneous trip to Ikea - got a cheapie desk, spruced it up with some pink spray paint, and this came to fruition:

{Ok wow, this pic does not look as glam as those above. But seriously, I'm in love with this situation.}

Turns out, Sydney was ready for a change too, and so began our exciting journey of power shopping, cramming cars with goodies, ice cream cones, and six solid hours of construction. Did we build a desk while watching Sex and the City: The Movie on loop? Yep. Did we drink some wine while listening to sweet jazz while hammering and allen wrenching? Sure did. And it was a huge success (not to mention a whole bunch of fun). Here are some of our antics on office renovation day:

Shopping at Ikea wouldn't be complete without fat free froyo:

Crammin' everything in the car:

So maybe I could barely fit in the front seat. I didn't notice. I was too busy eating (per usual).
