Office Nook Reveal

Good morning! I’m so excited to share my little office nook reveal with you today! I’m always amazed at how a few subtle changes can really change a space. Before we get into the fun “after” picture, here’s a reminder of what the space looked like in transition.

The biggest change {kinda?} I made was painting my desk a charcoal grey. It’s hard to tell in these photos how different it really is, but it has definitely softened up the space and given it a more feminine look. I also did a little Rub and Buff on the drawer pulls. The charcoal and gold mesh so well with my rescued office chair. They really look like they were made for each other!

I was able to bring a little pops of color through the new shelves. I ditched the dry erase board above the desk that I never used, and replaced it with this bright and cheerful canvas from Red Letter Words. It’s such a great reminder to have right in front of me while I’m working! :)

The framed hand prints were a Christmas gift my sister and I made for my Grandad when we were 6 and 2. I still remember my Dad helping us make that and being so excited to give it to him. It’s a sweet reminder of him.

I found this cute blue teacup at Goodwill, and knew it would be an awesome little succulent planter. I can’t get enough of it! It’s just too cute !

My husband drew the picture of me on the top shelf when we were in college and dating. The gold “R” and little owl were Hobby Lobby finds; and the glittery “H” was in one of the dollar bins at Michaels. I’m loving the faux plants from Ikea these days. I have several in places that I would typically forget to water, or that don’t have enough sun for thriving green things. I’m not typically a fake plant girl, but I really like these little guys!

I bought a cute plastic place mat from Target to protect the surface of the desk. I work on a variety of items at this desk, and didn’t want to risk any of those things scratching the paint. Plus, it’s another fun pop of color! These adorable notebooks are by Rifle Paper Co., but I found them at Target. Love !

One of my favorite things about this desk is the perfect little nook it has for my sewing machine. It feels good to be able to knock a few things off of my to-do list, and I’m so happy with how it turned out!
