The Office




I know I mentioned a home office redo quite awhile ago. Well, we also did one quite awhile ago I just haven't posted it yet. So this is it, nothing too fancy, but practical. This space is right off our kitchen and is where I blog and where we meet our most wonderful clients. The board over the desk was completely inspired by Erika's office inspiration board although mine was done on the cheap. I simply used 2 of the largest cork boards I could find at Walmart and stapled them together in the back. I then used a cream linen to cover. I am also planning on repainting the desk. It was not a great paint job in the first place and with the new sprayer it will be a cinch to do. I am thinking of using Rosemary by Sherwin Williams. It is the same green that Erika used for her kitchen cabinets and I am rather in love. So I guess I should say a huge thank you to Erika for all her help. She is so good that she can help me without saying a word, ha!

Adorable space! I love everything about it! Makes me want to improve mine. Right now my imac is sitting on an old vanity that used to be in my daughter's room! I need something more "desk-like".

Cute and functional! You must be better about cleaning up your messes than I am-- my desk is always a wreck.

Sarah said...

Amy R. said...

Looks inspiring. I will eventually get to designing and decorating the office. It is kind of the drop off spot for anything we don't have room for in other areas of the house.

I love the Mac!
