I have to say I’m a pretty lucky girl…instead of playing video games during his break, my hubby made my office…like literally made it. I held up the shelf once and I told him where to put things, so I helped a teeny bit too 😉 As a trade off, I painted the kitchen island and the hallway, so you can’t call me lazy!
It’s still got some work to do like painting the desk top, shelf and the window frame (which my husband also made…did I mention I was lucky?), but I think it is looking AMAZING! All it needs is one of my new Cake Mugs! Okay, it probably needs more than that, but it couldn’t hurt!
I got the magnet boards from Ikea and the Wall Rack and shelves are from The Container Store. My husband came up with the idea to use ready-made cabinets and hardware is from Home Depot and the top is just two doors…so it was really inexpensive, but it looks SOOO good! It has made such a difference in the way the house looks. If you don’t believe me, here’s a little refresher:
Yep…I was desperately in need of a new, clean, organized, super functional office…and I’m in love!
Seriously, look how sexy that window looks…
I’m sure that this project will take a lot longer, but I’ll be posting updates as we go along. I’m getting a chair this week (they’re actually for the kitchen, but until I find the perfect chair, they’ll have to do) so I’l FINALLY be able to use my new desk. I’ve got big plans, people…and I can’t wait to show you the rest!
