Office Update

Good Morning!  I hope your week is going well :)  After I took some pictures of our new window seat in our office a couple of weeks ago, I realized that I haven't shared any recent office update pictures in a while.  It's finally coming together.  There are still a few more things I would like to change, like a new rug and more styling on the shelves, but for the most part the big projects are complete.

So here's what I've done since my last update.  I've added the new window seat, a few more accessories, the large baskets on the bottom shelves and the rug.  Most the accessories and the baskets are from Home Goods.  It's my go to place for much goodness there for such great prices!  The rug was one I had stuck away in a closet and it works for now, but a larger one would be more ideal.  The bulletin board was a simple DIY, that I said would be temporary, but it's still there since I haven't found anything else yet ;) 

Of course the biggest impact was painting and rearranging the furniture.  You can see the difference in this lovely before picture below :)  I almost considered getting rid of the this furniture and starting fresh, but then decided to paint it first thinking if I hated it, I would start fresh then.  You can go here and here to see how we painted the furniture and the progress of this room.

Yikes, this before is so bad.  How did I live with it like this for any length of time?  When we moved, our previous home did not have an office, so this room was a collection of several different pieces of furniture just thrown in here.

What I love most about this space is this huge window and the high ceilings.  I love all the natural light that pours in this room.  We spend a lot of time in here mostly because both kids are taking piano lessons and they practice daily, so it's nice to have a bright, pretty, organized space to enjoy their music in.

Have a great day!
