My office redo update

It’s been months in the works, but my home office is finally on its way! If you’ll reminisce with me I talked about starting my office redo in this post, way back on October 26, 2010. Since then I bought a desk and painted the room, both in this post. It’s been very slow going and I’m still not done, and I may never be done, there is always some cute to add or change, but I’m very happy so far!

So here is my before

And after

The desk is a goodwill find, nice sturdy desk, for only $25! I sanded, primed, painted and sealed it. I thought there was too much white, so I broke it up a bit. The brown is the same color as the walls, and the pink, well the pink is the same color as the bottle sitting on my desk. The bottle was a gift from Jeremy for Christmas and the paint really closely matched the fabric I have planned for the chandelier, which you can see in the corner in the after picture, the window treatments, chairs, if it involves fabric it will be one of 6 designs I found at hobby lobby, it’s brown with pink, green, blue, and yellow, maybe some other colors, but they are all coordinating fabrics, which I love!

The Chandelier will be another post, I have all the shade frames made, I’m too cheap to buy them, I might change my mind when I try to cover them, we shall see. Chandelier shades are CRAZY expensive. So far I’ve spent $46 on this office makeover, which includes the chandelier, shades and fabrics. Not bad, huh?

The lovely art you see on the wall was a Christmas gift from Jeremy. I love barbies, you can’t see my small collection of them, so Jeremy painted me some watercolor barbies. They are all the same silhouette, different /colors/ethnicity blond, auburn, black, Hispanic, and Asian. I also have a Barbie puzzle he gave me last Christmas that I am working on putting together and then I’ll get that put up.

Oh, I almost forgot! Back to my desk….I thought to make my desk a little more personal I would monogram it, and again break up some of the white. It’s not really on there yet, just a print out stuck on there. What do you think? Too much? Tacky? Let me know!

Until tomorrow, I have several projects and recipes to share that I just haven’t as of yet! I will get better with blogging, I promise, 2 in one week, that’s pretty good! With that I’ll leave you with some cute photos of my silly animals

Guinness and Roosevelt cuddling in a box, how adorable? A box is all the toy they need

The next they are both grooming themselves

Dogs are so weird, but cute!
