Home Office Tour

Hello friends! On Monday, I shared my thoughts on my new rug pad from RugPadUSA and in the midst of writing up that post, I realized that I haven't shown y'all a true update on how my office is looking nowadays. The last photo of the whole room I shared was back when we moved in - ack! Bad blogger. I guess since I've been making this room over little by little, project by project, I lost track of the last time I did a "real" post about it.

Since it's high time for an update, let's just dive right in. One thing I love about this room is that I've poured a lot of sweat equity into getting the right pieces into it...there are so many DIYs, which is just how I like it! I'll link to them as I go if you want more details on a specific project.

For those of you who are new around here, I work from home full-time as a genetic counselor, so I hang out in her a lot. I've really come to love this room though, so I don't mind being in here eight hours a day. This room gets the most natural light in the whole house, which I really appreciate, especially during the short winter days.

The sawhorse desk was a DIY from two years ago when we lived in DC. My office there was in our bedroom, so needless to say I was pumped to be able to move my desk into its own small room (it's only 8'x9') and call it my own. This summer I added washi tape greek key trim to the desk top and I think that adds a little bit of fun sophistication to it.

The open shelf with the gold brackets is one of my favorite additions to the room. I painted some inexpensive brackets from IKEA with gold craft paint (they used to be white) and put a simple white shelf on top. It's amazing how much organization and function one shelf can bring to a room. Plus, it fills up what was once a very blank wall. You can read more about that DIY shelf here in this post. I like to change up the decor on that shelf - it's a revolving door of accessories!

Below that shelf is a favorite project from this past summer. I picked that 3-drawer card catalog up off the side of the road and gave it a makeover (you should see the rusted out before photos!). It's the perfect height and size for my massive and not-so-pretty work printer. Will someone out there please design a pretty printer?

A very recent addition to the office is a little gallery wall. The big wall next to the gold shelf was looking so sad and empty! I'd like to switch out a few pieces up there, but I'm just glad to have some color on the walls for now!

That's pretty much it! Putting this post together makes me realize how much progress has been made and how happy I am with how far this tiny room has come in a matter of a few months. It's my little light and bright haven in our home.

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed today's office tour!
