This has been a busy week for me! I haven’t had much time to work on anything for the blog. I worked out of the home one day and HAD to clean my home another day. I’m taking my mom to a doctor’s appointment one day and my daughter to the orthodontist another day! So I thought I would share something I’m working on, well have been working on for about a month! The office. I loved the way it was set up before but it wasn’t very functional. It seemed that every time I was crafting, everything ended up in the kitchen! So I decided to redo the office area.
No, this isn’t my office! I wish! This is from Pottery Barn, which I cannot afford, but am going to try to copy, somewhat.
I do want to make a tiered tray like this one from BHG.
These are the colors I’m planning on using. White and tan with accents of blue.
I love how The Velvet Door used baskets for storage. Notice how she wrapped her books in brown paper for a cohesive look. The blue frame on the chalkboard really adds a little color to the corner without being too bold.
I also have a dresser in the office that I use as a credenza. All the larger drawers were removed for another project but I put baskets on the shelves for storage. I love how Design Sponge used this one!
This is my before. Well, the before AFTER I starting moving stuff in here and rearranging. There’s A LOT of things here! Crafting, magazines, genealogy notes, books…..and the list goes on! Before I had the crafting supplies in a closet but it was such a hassle trying to pull everything out.
Here’s a little sneak peek! The dark brown is gone! I’ve painted the furniture and shelving white. I even painted my baskets and magazine holders! It’s starting to look good in there! Unfortunately, I have a whole lot more left to do in there!
Thanks for stopping by!
