I said it! I wanted a girly office! It may not be PC, but if I am juggling 3 different “revenue sources” I need a pretty space! This has been a work in progress for over 3 years. This is where my office started 3 years ago:
And, my first step was to buy this desk at Pottery Barn on New Years Eve of 2012! The Printer’s Desk. It was the floor model! FYI…. I am on a list of potential buyers who are interested in Pottery Barn’s floor sample sales. And, a sales associate actually called me!
So I had my dream desk, but my space was still dark. And, now I had a dark stained desk. And, my paint makeovers and diy shelf were now looking too dark for the space! Hmmm…
So to see the vision I had to clear the room.
And with white ceilings and new paint.. it started to brighten up!
Along the way, I painted the diy shelf I made the year before and I repainted the filing cabinet and added new hardware. So easy!
So my back was to the windows behind me. I needed access to my printer…. like constantly. So it was lodged it the corner below the windows!
I spent a lot of nights just moving furniture around the room. Yep, fun winter nights while waiting for Scandal to return! And, a funny thing happened. I found my groove and the furniture fell into place.
But for now I savor this final image! Love the color, window treatments, painted furniture and layout! I wish I could say my desk looks like this on Friday. Scroll below for resource list.
