Well my friends, my office renovation is finally complete!
It was a fast and furious few days of painting, new flooring
and putting everything back together in place. This is going
to be a loooong post as I wanted to show you tons of pictures
so you can see all of the before and after shots. (*_*)
Here are a few pics of my office before...notice it's all torn apart
and I usually don't like to show pics like this...I can't quite believe
that I am letting you see it with things just thrown all over the place!
The hideous green paint and powder blue carpet just had to go...far, far away!
And here it is now...come on in!
It's all bright and cheery now, and PINK! Yes, I wanted pink and lots of it.
It's not a soft pastel pink nor is it a bright pink, it's a "just right" pink!
I love my new flooring especially with my favorite old rug in the center of the room.
A pretty work station is a must for me.
I tried to keep the items on my shelf simple and pretty. I love Christie Repasy's work and
I decided to put three of my favorites above my desk. I also love the flat screen tv/dvd
player on my wall. It makes the work go faster when I can watch a movie.
I even surprised myself by keeping my shelves so clean!
All of the essentials close at hand.
Good lighting, pretty flowers and a Simply Shabby Chic file folder box keep everything
close at hand. A sweet postcard from my friend Jo at Vintage Rose Collection adorns
the front of my file folder. It's the little touches that count!
I love my table chandelier on my desk. It is both elegant and functional.
I also love my large floral print that I found at the thrift store for ten dollars.
This is a not so simple display! I love to display all of my favorite bits and pieces
and this shelf has it all with a french theme running throughout...with a little
bit of garden decor thrown in!
Here is the other side of the room where I store all of my items for my web site and Etsy.
I love the open shelves. They are very strong and allow me to look at a glance from
my computer to see what is there...very convenient!
This is probably the best purchase for my business that I have ever made. This
fabulous old meat scale can weigh packages up to 30 pounds. What a lifesaver!
Love this Psalm and the sweet pair of Lefton angels.
Any girly office has to have a sparkling chandelier.
Okay, you don't HAVE to have one, but it's nice!
A pretty vintage porcelain rose lamp surrounded by family pictures.
An old tole rose piece and a Christie Repasy wastebasket by the door.
And a cast iron header rests above the door on your way out...
There are still some things that I want to tweak, but you get the overall idea.
I hope you have enjoyed the tour of my newly renovated space!
