When I moved in with my husband, I knew I would be making alot of changes to his (now our) home! He had a typical bachelor's pad. It was nice but definitely no bells and whistles going on and Im all about the bells and whistles! lol
So we decided we would tackle one room at a time. One of the first and most important rooms we wanted to do was our home office. I work from home alot and he was in school at the time so we knew it was a room we would both be in alot.
The first thing you have to do when you are redecorating a room is to determine the look you want to go for. The room is kinda small so I really wanted to maximize the space we have. I knew I wanted to have dark wood furniture so we decided to go with a satin mustard yellow color for the walls and a semi gloss white for doors, window frames, and baseboards. I wanted the office to be vibrant, yet warm.
Once we completed everything, I was really pleased with the way it came out and we did it all on a budget! I love working in the office now!
We bought new desks which I assembled! Yes, I assembled them BOTH!! Dont tell anyone, but I have always secretly wanted to be a carpenter...lol
