It was a productive weekend. I did a lot of pallette color decision making, a lot of painting and re-painting and got a few things in progress ready to put into the Home Office Makeover. I’ve been doing some decor-remodeling, some building, and mostly, some planning and rolling ideas around in my head.
Since I’ve been sharing some of the little projects I’ve been working on, I though I would step back and share the “BIG” picture with you.
Here are some BEFORE pics:
Blah! Blah! Blah! Lots of great organization and I love my desk (even though it is terribly old and well worn) but dull, dull, dull. I want to recover my chair to give it a fresh look.
Got some new art planned for this corner and hopefully, a way to tame the cord mess.
My daughter comes home everyday and flops into this chair to tell me about her day while I wrap up my workday. It will return to Living Room, where it belongs, when I find a new chair to put into this corner. I like that my daughter comes in here first and I want her to have something comfortable but a little smaller scale.
I like having my doggies near me when I work so their crate are in here. Mostly, they just lounge around the desk and chair but when I have an important call, being crated keeps them quiet. I need to make new covers to help the crates blend nicely with the new decor. I’m sure my 3 little ladies (Ellie Mae, Roxy and Daisy) will enjoy a little “Room” makeover for themselves.
These curtains will have to go…. they are too vintage for my new fresh color scheme. I think I have some green curtains around here somewhere that I can put with some new hardware. And finally…….
I love my photo wall, but I think I will need to paint the frames to fit into the new color scheme I have in mind. I’m still pretty stumped on what to do with the fish tank base. I might have to google around and see what’s been done.
So, without further ado…. here is what I have planned.
As you can see, I will be adding some cool green to balance the warm orange of the desk and sunny yellow accents I am adding throughout the room. It will be a breath of fresh air as the temptations of spring await outside my window while I work.
Did you have a productive weekend? Do you have any painting projects in progress? What colors are inspiring you?
