Hello and happy Tuesday!
As you might already know, over the last week I’ve been working on turning our rarely used formal dining room into my new home office and lounge (you can click here to see the before and after photos of the 2013 $150 dining room update). It came a looong way from the ugly swirl wallpaper. 🙂
Well, we put the finishing touch on the office this weekend by hanging the new pendant light. Yay!
Now onto the photos…
Here’s the before shot of our updated dining room:
I really liked this updated space, but am so happy that it’s actually being used now. I’m also very happy that a lot of the dining room decor worked in the office (wall shelves, buffet, sunburst, curtains, other mirror).
BONUS: I didn’t have to paint…yay!
Here are the after shots of the converted office (please ignore the beautiful baby gates):
|I turned a crystal lazy susan handed down from my great grandma into a unique office organizer.|
Total = $101
+ Ikea couch (10 years old, from master bedroom)
Next on our DIY to do list:
We’re building a custom banquette seating area in our kitchen to make up for the loss of dining space.
