Home Office Nook
Finally I am ready to show you what I’ve been working on!! My makeshift new home office.
D.I.Y. projects galore!
Not everything went smoothly, I had a couple of set backs during my home office projects and for a first time chalk paint user I can honestly say I’m completely hooked on it now.
To give you an idea of what was involved, here is a look at what it was like before and what it is now.
I posted about many of the projects I did along the way. (D.I.Y. home office projects)
Some things I learned though is that if you are going to spray paint, prime first. I tried to skip this step when painting my pink & gold desk and regretted it later.
Way too many cans of spray paint later, I finally got it looking nice.
Also, you can’t sand down a piece of furniture too much, sand your heart away. I was always having to go back and sand some more and finally bought an electric hand sander to simplify the task and save my arm the aches. Highly recommend this if you are re-doing any furniture pieces ever.
I overestimated the amount of space I had for my home office wall gallery. I had a grand vision and very little space however, I think it turned out pretty cute regardless of its size.
I purchased a couple of the plaqued inspirational words, used free printables & also did a canvas painting.
What I love most about my new work space is that it’s totally me. Lot’s of pink & quite girly.
I had a ton of fun designing this nook and it inspired me to do some more painting projects. (Wait until you see what I made my Kitty Cat, so cute!)
So, not bad for a makeshift office huh?
It went from total man cave to totally girly and functional.
C’mon, tell me you love it!
