I am a firm believer that when I commit to something, I have to get it done! Now when I started this project, I of course did not believe it would have taken me over the 30 day commitment to complete, but I was determined to finish it. I couldn't have imagined that I would be dealing with having repairs done on my main level, along with completing this room, but that's life. And today is the today. The room is finished and I am so happy!
I won't take up this post with too many words. Here is what the office looked like before.
After changing the layout around and selling off the old furniture, my office now flows so much better with the rest of my house. I am so happy I decided to keep the same paint color. Working around your current paint color is a great way to save money.
Just warning you now. There may be a bit of picture overload.
My office chair got a little makeover with some white gloss spray paint. The file cabinet got a makeover in Navy blue gloss spray paint.
The stool was a goodwill find. I just covered it with a white faux rug from Ikea.
The desk was originally a brown wood and purchased from Goodwill. It got made over in a mix of paints that I had in my stash.
The tape dispenser was an Amazon purchase and the gold tape dispenser was originally black and got a coat of gold spray paint. The vase was also a Goodwill find. I can't believe someone got rid of it.
For the gold scissors, I refused to pay $15 for a pair, so I just spray painted the black ones that I had on hand ;)
The shelves are from Ikea and they are the Vittsjo shelves in white.
The gold bookends were brown and got a coat of gold spray paint as well. The deer were purchased from Goodwill.
Lot's of the items for this room were either thrifted and repurposed, or I pulled out of my stash from other areas of the home. The total for this makeover was just around $275, which I didn't even spend all at once! I love budget makeovers:)
So thats pretty much it. Please let me know if you have any questions about the items. I talked about a lot of my thrifted items throughout my progress posts here, here, here, and here.
Thanks so much for sticking around! While I didn't get it done in 30 days, I am just happy to have it done!
I hope everyone had a fantastic long weekend. Until next time!
