Dan and I have finished the home office! Well, "finished" is a subjective term LOL! There are a few things I'm still planning to add, a translucent acrylic desk chair, a few Expedit shelf accessories and wall art. But those things will take some time; I'm hoping I will be able to thrift some of it :) But, in the meantime, the room is looking pretty put together.
I apologize - there are no "before" pictures except for this odd pic - which was actually a mistake - but at least it shows the colors it used to be:
and this one which was actually taken of the telephone table we thrifted a couple weeks ago: It's now going to be relocated:
Please, come in and take a walk around the room with me :)
The glass door was one of the first things Dan and I installed when we moved in in October 2005. Right inside the door is this picture:
The love seat came from Overstock. I have to say, it was a BEAST to assemble and at one point, we were ready to throw in the towel but I'm glad we hung in there. The gorgeous pillows came from Etsy store LillieDDesigns --
These were the cornerstone of the color choices. Oh they are beautiful and vibrant and it was specifically the peachy-melon colors that sealed the deal :) The rug is from Ikea:
A Lucite desk from CB2 was in the original plan but at $379, I went on search for a less expensive alternative. These came from WalMart. There were $50 each and shipped right to my door for FREE. Next, the light. I wanted a glitzy chandelier; Dan didn't. This fixture bridged the gap:
Thank you Overstock! I'm totally in love with it.
And last, but certainly not least, the paint colors.
Glidden Dusty Miller and Behr Natural Almond
So there it is! We're on to the next (knuckle bump) LOL! <3 Lisa
