Office Reveal

I posted about my office in April and it has taken me several weeks to complete it. I thought that I would have this project done in a jiffy NOT!!!!!! I could tell you about all the things that have happened since my last post, but I won't. So shall we begin?

This is how my office looked before he makeover. You can see the entire post here. Just in case you're wondering what happened, I am too. I have worked in this ho-hum space for several years in this condition, and believe it or not I use this space daily. What was I thinking? My budget was skinny so the first thing I did was shopped the house. I love this type of shopping, it's FREE!

After I had shopped the house, I still needed a lamp for my desk. So, I headed to the neighborhood Goodwill and unearthed this Asian inspired lamp for only $8.96. It didn't have a lampshade but that would be an easy fix. Now that all the shopping had been done ha! ha! ha!, it was time to get down to business.

I removed everything from the space except for the file cabinet, and I got busy!

First, I painted inside the bookcase and.....

The file cabinet and the hardware received a fresh coat of spray paint as well.

Then, I made an easy table skirt for the desk. Whew! Okay enough already. Are you ready for the reveal? Take it away...........

My office is comprised of thrift store finds, as well as gifts that were given to me through the years. I guess it's safe to say it's a sentimental space, and I really love it. The only things that were purchased for this space was the lamp, ($9) silver picture frame, ($9) and the wire basket covering the air-vent.($10) 
Enjoy the rest of the pics!

Thanks for stopping by!
