Home Office: Home Office Reveal!

Home Office Reveal!

As promised, here is the reveal of my transformed home office space! It’s nothing spectacular, and there’ll probably be some future tweaking, though for now I’m calling it done! Oh, and if you missed the awards ceremony, don’t worry, you can congratulate me later. Huh, what’s that? You didn’t hear? Well, I broke the world ....Continue reading….

Home Office: Bamboo Chippendale Chair Makeover

Bamboo Chippendale Chair Makeover

Something slip-covered, something leather or something with loose cushions. Something timeless, something with a little pop and something kinda statement-y. This was my loose criteria when deciding on a new chair for our home office space. You see, our home office space is just that; a space. It’s in a prominent and highly trafficked area just off ....Continue reading….

Home Office: How To Keep a Rug in Place on Carpet

How To Keep a Rug in Place on Carpet

I should have titled this post “My Slightly (or not so slightly) Weird and/or Crazy Out of Desperation Experiment on How to Keep a (bleep-ing) Rug to Say In Place on Carpet” though that seemed a little excessive so for now I’ll stick to my neatly summarized one. Anyhoo, I recently placed a jute area ....Continue reading….

Home Office: DIY No Sew Rolled Window Valance

DIY No Sew Rolled Window Valance

In our newly appointed home office space (which is almost finished and soon to be shared!) there’s a floor to ceiling double sliding windowed door (as briefly blogged about here). The natural light it affords the space is lovely. The blinding summer sun and frosty winter coolness which occasionally penetrates the glass…ummm, not so lovely. This was never an issue ....Continue reading….

Home Office: Spray Paint Door Hardware Update

Spray Paint Door Hardware Update

Hey all! Just chiming in with an easy, non-earth shattering, little spray paint project… As with our two built-in robes (one in the master bedroom and one in the nursery) which were originally fitted with ugly beige metal tracks and surrounds, we also have an external sliding door complete with the same unsightly hardware with the added bonus ....Continue reading….

Home Office: Filling a Naked Picture Frame

Filling a Naked Picture Frame

Sorry if my post title lured you here in hopes of some gratuitous nudity :-) I thought I’d ease back into the décor side of things with this easy project. It’s certainly not rocket science though for anyone scratching their head about an easy way to re-claim their glass-less, back-less picture frames here’s how I recently salvaged ....Continue reading….

Home Office: Home Office Cabinet Progress

Home Office Cabinet Progress

I know I originally said I wasn’t going to refer to my new computer area as a ‘home office’ though it’s just the most self-explanatory title, so home office it is. You may remember I was in a bit of a pickle over finding some appropriate cabinetry. The restrictive proportions of the space teamed with our ....Continue reading….

Home Office: A New Room Redo

A New Room Redo

Suffice to say it was a fair exchange, though for us, gaining Charlotte meant losing our “computer room”. I know calling it a “home office” or “study” would sound more official, though with the majority of time spent in there going toward online shopping, e-stalking and maybe shooting the occasional virtual bad guy (hubby, not me) a ....Continue reading….
