We have been busy! I apologize for the late post on the office, but I can happily report that it is done! With the exception of painting and window treatments (see my first post here as to why we skipped those things for now!), I am really happy about how everything turned out!
Ready to see the finished product?
Details on the decorating:
I love these flowers! I was looking for something bright to cheer up the room a bit, as everything else was themed in the white, black and grey categories. The vases were from Hobby Lobby and Michaels ($1.50-$2.99 each), and the flowers were also from Michaels ($1.00 each).
To also bring in some color, I found this pillow at TJMaxx, which really added a pop of yellow. We already had the green chair, which was purchased from World Market.
I found these quotes at TJMaxx as well. They were a great deal, at $12.99 each. They tie in well with the black & white canvas photos (visit here to see how we made the canvas photos) and they are motivating!
I LOVE this mirror. I was stumped on what I wanted to put over the filing cabinet, since I already had picked out pictures and quotes for the other walls, so when I saw this mirror at TJMaxx I knew it was the right choice! It fits in perfectly, and I love that when I walk by the room I can see the cheerful flowers in the reflection!
I am really pleased with how this room turned out! Not only is everything more organized (view my re-organized craft storage here), but it is brighter and feels more open than it did before!
The best part about this whole project is that you can really see such a big difference, and yet I was able to create the new atmosphere on a reasonable budget. Maybe I’ll actually look forward to paying bills now when I have such a lovely space to work in…just maybe! 🙂
