This post has been a long time coming! We have been in our house for a little over two months and we finally have the majority put together and painted! Our home is unfinished in the basement so we only have two bedrooms upstairs to work with. When deciding what to do with our second room – Nate and I agreed we would turn the space into an office/guest bedroom. Welcome to my office tour!
At our apartment – my desk and all of my office supplies were in our main living room. Nate is so excited that he doesn’t have to see them every day! Let me tell you – I have A LOT of office supplies… I finally have enough room to be able to keep them organized and out of the way.
When we first toured our house, this room was a nursery and was yellow. I immediately knew that I was going to change it – I am not a yellow girl. I decided to keep the two-toned room and went with Sherwin Williams – Sea Salt as the top color. The bottom is a deep gray with a purple tone. I love that Sea Salt is neutral without being boring. It adds a small pop of color and is really welcoming and bright.
We have a twin size bed in the room so it doubles as a place to sleep if anyone ever comes to stay over – we haven’t run into that yet! Our bedding is from Kohl’s and Target. More pillows will be added as time goes on – you can never have enough.
I have had my desk from Ikea for over three years. One of my first DIY projects I ever did was spray paint the white legs gold. I also have an Ikea Alex Drawer full of other supplies. I have a love/hate relationship with the desk and its lack of attached drawers – keeping my eyes peeled for a replacement. All of the photos hanging behind my desk are from Hobby Lobby and were 50% off!
I got the blue cart from Sam’s Club a few years back after seeing a ton of people with the Raskog Cart from Ikea. It sits in the corner and houses the majority of my small craft supplies and extras.
We are planning to move the office downstairs when it is finished for a little more separation. Until then, I think this is a good starting point for me and I can’t wait to come up with some DIYs – and shop – for the perfect pieces to fill the space!
A Special Thank you to Elisebeth Anne Photography for taking some of these awesome photos for me in our in-home session!
