Office Reveal

I am thrilled to share a house project!  I am so excited that one space is complete.  Well, complete might be overzealous. 

When we moved we lost nearly 1800 sq ft.  We are utilizing every inch we have in our new place.  We are even getting creative with spaces.

Since we moved a week before school started, I was adamant about having a landing zone for all the paperwork.  I also needed a place to manage my life and business.

It was the first room we tackled.  This little nook is off the entrance.  It has a pocket door – huge space saver!

I believe the previous owners used this space as a dog zone.

First step was to clear the room and paint.

The whole room received a coat of creamy white (same as the kitchen). 

Then we taped off the space and applied the house paint, Smoked Tan.

I just love the stripes!

We then measured the uneven wall and bought a piece of cabinet grade wood.  Primed and painted in a gloss white, it is now my desk!

Using a quarter round trim, we painted and trimmed out the desk (attached to the wall).  Then we applied a half round trim piece to the front of the desk.  This finishes the desk perfectly.

I painted the cabinets and replaced the knobs.

It is still a work in progress but there is progress.

A few more items for the wall and I may call it complete and move on to the next room!

Have a great day!
