The office was a spare bedroom and we wanted to open it up to the rest of
the kitchen area. The sink, the washer and dryer were at the back entrance and are now
downstairs in the laundry room.
Little boys with hammers!!
and permission that they could bang on Auntie's wall!!
It was fun to step through the hole they helped make.
Looks like we forgot the saftey meeting though...bare feet and no shirts!!
We wanted to do a white shiplap board look to this wall, however when we found the
flooring on sale at Home Depot we decided to save the white shiplap look for another
project. We needed 8 boxes to complete the wall and that is exactly what was in stock!!
I think the new wall just warms up the room and adds some interest! Very happy with how
it turned out. Have had this Ikea furniture for awhile now and I still like it!
The pictures on the wall are just from Walmart and have had them as long as the office
furniture. The pictures look way better with the grey background!
So, come on into the office!
I wanted to use accents that were Industrial Farmhouse
The light on the crate to the left of the desk is from a swather Darrell spent hours on
When I turned the "faint" light on he commented that it shone about
that bright in the field too!!
New lights change up the space alot!
Darrell made the table that the phone is on, the bottom of it is
an old steering wheel from a tractor that he spent many hours on.
The bookshelves are built in to what was once the closet.
I moved the chair up from the spare room and it fits perfectly
in the space and the foot rest was from Jysk. A new spot to
read a book or chat on the phone!
Finally replaced the tired ole Ikea folders that we had on the wall
with some nice metal file holders. This is such an easy
way to keep bills and important papers in order. Everything in its
place makes for a space that is tidy and organized.
Trying out the panoramic setting on my Iphone..
Its all about the little accents, even in an office space, that makes it inviting
and that makes you want to spend time in. This is where I do all my bloggin and
Hope you enjoyed seeing what we have been up to in this New Year!
Any projects on your "to do list" for this year?
