Happy Friday! Today's Friday Pinspiration is all about my our office update! All based of furniture that we loved and accessories from ideas I pinned on Pinterest. Wait -hold the phone, even before the design was picked, the whole reason we even decided to embark on this DIY journey is because I was in desperate need of a new computer. My architect husband could not bear the though of a shiny new iMac on an old, beat up IKEA desk. Thus, the office update began.
First things first, Chris had to sand the hardwood in this room and our other spare bedroom. That was a long process in itself. Sanding, staining, and sealing - oh my! After he wrapped up Part One of Many, he installed new baseboards and quarter rounds. I never realized how much of a difference that could make in a room. As you can see in the before picture (from the listing) - this room needed A LOT of help! We tore the ugly carpet out the weekend we moved in. Then it pretty much stayed in that condition for 3 years. Ha! Lastly, Chris custom-built the shelving behind my desk. He saw this IKEA hack idea on a DIY blog and made it a reality! Seriously, he is becoming so handy these days.
We decided to purchased furniture that we loved and accessories from ideas I pinned on Pinterest. To say that I am obsessed with this room would be an understatement. I want to sleep in here. I love working in here. I wanted the room to inspire me and give me good vibes. I think it does just that. Take a look!
