Wheeeeeew-I am glad to be done with my office!
I decided this year to be a guest participant in The One Room Challenge by Linda at Calling It Home
Here is my office before:
I work from home and for awhile now my office has been the catch-all room.
At one time my office was organized and decorated, but after our remodel-it just became the jnk room where I worked from and I was tired of the mess.
When I first started the challenge I planned on painting the book shelves I had so I could have storage in my office. I need lots of storage since I work from home and my house was built in 1912 and has small closets and little storage.
I do a lot of projects and I need space to storage all my supplies.
I made part of this room transformation very difficult for myself. I found a pair of very similar old dressers at the Flea Market and sanded the drawers and painted them green. One day while driving, a thought popped into my head that the dressers would look great in my office and provide storage and a workspace.
I had to cut the edges off of one to make it fit, but after I put them in the room I didn't like them there. My office only has one window and does not get a lot of direct sunlight because of the porch, so the dark wood and green made my office feel dark and I didn't like it.
I love the dressers wood and green and I basically cried when I painted them white!
Once I had the dressers painted and back in my room, I loved them!
I added open shelves above the dressers for more storage.
I also painted my desk in white and painted my storgare chest of drawers in a soft coastal blue and white
I am still looking for a very comfortable office chair, but I did paint this chair in milk paint by Miss Mustard Seed and I covered the seat with vintage fabric.
My husband helped me hang my new vintage chandelier after I had it rewired.
I hung new curtains and bought a new rug
I added a very old window and some family photos to the wall
I love my chippy fabric cabinet that I painted with milk paint by Miss Mustard Seed.
I love fabric and vintage linens!
I removed the middle wooden panels of this cabinet and added chicken wire so I could see my colorful fabrics!
I love my new office!
I am so glad I participated in The One Room Challenge by Linda at Calling It Home
