Office Makeover Part I

I finally have my own SPACE! My wonderful husband and father helped my vision come to life. I am back working full-time, so I really needed my own office. I primarily work from home and working on my laptop from the couch wasn't cutting it. I had a craft room upstairs but it was a disorganized mess. I love to be super organized so I decided to start drawing out ideas for a nice organized room that I could work out of.

Most of my home has a very neutral palette. I decided to go bold and bright for this space. It's hard to stay happy and cheery when you stare at a computer screen all day. I decided to make this room a "happy" place. After spending too much time looking at craft rooms and offices on Pinterest, I made a list of my favorite design ideas. My favorite idea was converting a closet into a desk space. My dad took down the shelves and built his own. Then he cut out a desktop and secured it into the closet. It is absolutely PERFECT!! I really love the wallpaper. This part of the room is for sewing and crafts. It still has plenty of storage space for all of my crafting crap. I love the hot pink color that we used to paint the wood.

I will share the finished craft room in three parts. This is the first part of the room. Converting the closet to a work space really makes the room seem much bigger. I LOVE IT!

  2. Looks great! I was just debating with Will if I should move my "office" out of the mud room... But I think I'll do the wallpaper like you did to jazz it up!
