Home Office Reveal

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

A few cans of spray paint and some pretty accessories later, my home office is officially complete! I still plan to add on to the gallery wall but after looking at the "before" photo, it's crazy how much brighter the space looks. I actually don't mind sitting my butt here to work all day! (Though lounging at the beach would be better, I guess I can't have it all, right?)

I think I came in $100ish for this redo, plus the chair... forgot about that! (If my husband asks, its definitely closer to $100). I would categorize it as a "Kate Spade taste on a Target dollar section budget" makeover and I'm really happy with how it came out!

Dark + Cluttered... Ew!

I loved this find on Pinterest for color inspiration! Since I needed to keep the rug I already had, I was excited to see the grey and gold together.

I decided not to paint the walls since we're renting. The light aqua color would have been a bit much since this room is open to our living area anyway. When we finally buy a house, you better believe my office is going to be a woman's version of a "man cave!"


If I could get rid of the double-screen computer I would, but that brings in the paycheck so I'm stuck with it's ugliness.

I debated spray painting my desk because its huge but it was worth it in the end. It was still much cheaper than buying it all over again in white and driving 4 hours to the nearest Ikea.  


 



So there it is! Probably the quickest room makeover I've ever done. What do y'all think, did I do okay?!

  10. This looks amazing! The white definitely did brighten up the space quite a bit! Did you have to prime the desk before you painted it, or you just put the spray paint right on? It looks like a brand new piece! Also, love all of your prints & how you arranged them!
