Office Makeover!

September 6, 2011
This project was SO much fun. I’ve envisioned what I wanted for my office for quite some time, but getting there is a whole other story. After our photoshoot with Katelyn James, I figured – this is the perfect time to make it happen! My colors were designed around our photoshoot colors, so that made it really fun and easy!
First of all, I teamed up with my friend Amy Showalter with Amelia Bedelia Designs for her crafty vision and we went to work! Before I keep you wondering any longer, I give you my office before + the transformation process :)
I found this amazing idea to repaint a desk + spray paint the drawer knobs! I searched for a used/old desk and found the perfect one downtown Harrisonburg at Hess’ used furniture store. So here is the desk before!

My friend Amy sanding…

Spray painting the knobs oil-brushed bronze…

The kiddos “helping” ha.

We also painted my grandmothers stand (to be used for a printer stand).

Now for the office before. It was a hand-me-down pictures/old item/kids diaper changing room, oh and my office too. ;)

And now, are you ready?!?! The AFTER :)
This could possibly be my favorite part of the room. I got the idea from a DIY post from Ashlee Proffitt. Found 3 junk drawers, painted them light blue/teal and put on new knobs. Then my husband had the genius idea of hanging matted photos!
Travis’ grandma gave us her mirror, to make it a little more my taste, I spray painted it brown.
Also the “after” of my grandmas stand!

What do you think? I absolutely love it. I’m thrilled how it turned out! Most importantly, it’s a space I can go and get away, work, let my soul breath and feel at peace. I encourage you all to have a place you can feel the same!
