One Room Challenge Guest | Home Office

It's time for another round of the One Room Challenge Guest Series!  This time our home office will be getting reworked.  If you've been reading for awhile, you may remember that I jumped on board last Spring to finish our kitchen.  If you're interested you can see our ORC kitchen makeover here:

If you're not familiar with the ORC, it is organized by Linda at Calling It Home twice a year with 20 feature bloggers and then a guest link up.  Participants pick one room to makeover in a 6 week period and each week the participants link up their projects and share their progress.  There is so much inspiration from both the featured and guest participants.  

So let's jump in with before pics.

We have already made a little progress on our office making it look cute, but it really wasn't setup to really work in and store all my supplies.  When my job status change to full-time in June, I needed a more functional office.  I work a lot from home so it became more of a priority than it was in the past.

So here's what I have in mind.  We will still use our current furniture, which includes two bookcases and a file cabinet-desk.  Our old furniture will all get pushed back against the back wall and then this new gray desk will sit in front.  We will be adding french doors to close off the space from the entry and adding doors to the bottom of the bookcases.  The room will be finished off with lots of pretty details including:  this artwork, these knobs, a new rug, a new light and storage essentials.

I hope you'll follow along.  Check back every Thursday for an update!
