Home Office Makeover - Work in Progress

Well....at long last - my office is almost complete!  I have been wanting to make this room over for almost a year, and with the baby coming we finally got a swift kick in the butt to get it done!  Basically we had some major re-arranging of rooms to do.  You see, the baby's nursery was my craft room (you may remember this room), and we had to move all of that stuff out of that room and combine the craft room and office into one space.  I am actually very glad we had to do this because I was constantly having to run up and down the stairs since my computer was in the office and all of my craft supplies upstairs.  I always ended up bringing my craft supplies down and working in the office anyway!

So - this weekend, we got to it.  It starting with the painting of the room - a much needed change from the builder grade paint we originally had.  I chose Sherwin Williams Zircon 7667.  I love this shade of gray - it's the perfect neutral but brightens up the room a ton!!  Then, Hubby built me some custom shelves to give me some much needed storage.

Here are the before and after photos.  Like the taxidermy?  Aren't I a nice wife for letting hubby hang his deer in my office?

I still need to hang some artwork and organizing stuff over the desk - that's this weekend's project!

Didn't hubby do a great job on the shelves?  I love them!!

These hanging file boxes are just those cardboard ones you buy at the office supply store.  I decided to cover them in decorative paper, and love the gray and green color combo!

That's the office - what do you think?  I am so happy with it so far.  Now I just need to finish decorating over the desk and the window treatments and I'm all set!!  Ahhh - feels good to have one project crossed off the list.

  15. I just found you on TT&J's post and I HAD to come by and say THANK GOODNESS I am not the only one that has random deer heads around my house :) LOL!! My husband had them in our dinning room, but then he made one of our bedrooms into a 'man' room and so they were all banished in there with him. Now I am in the process of turning the dining room into a craft room! :)

  16. How did you create your new desk? I am looking to create a project table and have seen many people that use those 9 cube organizers from Target with some kind of top. Would love to know what you did...looks great!
