DIY HOME OFFICE UPDATE

September 9, 2014

Hello and happy Tuesday!

I turned 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. 

And when it starts getting dark outside, the light casts super cool shadows all over the room. I love it!

Bonus: Vivi loves the light 🙂

Guest room #1:



I painted the builder grade oak bathroom cabinets and trim in Lunar Light, but we ended up running out of time to remove the carpet and tile the jack and jill bath. It is what it is I guess. 

Guest room #2 (aka the man room):

Not sure why we keep the iron in here. Ted is the only one who irons, so I guess it makes sense where it is, ha.
