Show You What I'm Working With: Office Style

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

A few weeks ago I posted some images from my pinterest that I'd been dreaming about for our office redo. Ever since the day we painted the office (which happens to be two days after we got the keys) I've been wanting to re paint it! When I choose the color, I was hoping for a nice soothing/relaxing office that I would want to spend time in. The Mint Chocolate Chip color garbage that I ended up with was definitely not what I was going for! Let's just say, green is not in the color swatches I'm looking at for the new room! To give you an idea of what I'm working with I decided to post some before pics. 

(Sorry we still had christmas gifts for some of Dan's family when I took these pictures :))

No real storage, ugly paint color, and stuff just kind of everywhere. I'm hoping for a much more organized, functional and cute finished look! You can look back on THIS post to see what I'm hoping the final product will encompass. We are planning to paint the existing desk white along with the book shelf, paint the walls a shade of grey, and use white, yellow, black and grey for the overall decor colors. If you have any suggestions for places to get cute prints, yellow decor, or more ideas please send them my way! Can't wait to have an office that I want to be in and one that is a place both Dan and I can enjoy! 


  1. Ooooo, I can't wait to see it completed!

  2. I am in the middle of trying to find some ways to organize my office/bedroom as well. I need to start scrounging on Pinterest too. Its driving me NUTS! Cant wait to see your final results.

  3. I bet you can find some awesome printables on Etsy for cheap or pinterest for free!

  4. Your house reminds me a lot of mine - retired helmets as household decor :) My living room has a retired hydrant as well... SO, there's some yellow decor for ya! Good luck! I'm a trial-and-error decorator. I usually paint a room 2 or 3 times before I get it right.

  5. I love your medal holder!!! Where did you get it?
