Well, I finally did it. I removed every piece of furniture from my formal living room and am spending the next few weeks slowly converting the space into what I so desperately need it to be — a functioning office.
It was hard to part with tradition. A lot of the old timers that come to visit my house cannot understand how I removed my leather couches and all the accessories. But you and I both know that we just don’t live that way anymore.
A room that the children aren’t really allowed to use? A room where they can’t run free and relax and spill all over? It’s just not a reality at this stage in my life. So, I killed it.
The formal dining room is next… but one thing at a time. She knows she’s on borrowed time though. Her table legs shake every time I walk by. LOL!
Creating A New Office Space: Removed My Formal Living Room From The House
Anyway, I have SO MUCH MORE TO DO – but here is where I stand right now. The room is VERY WIDE. I am only showing you half of it because the other half is not ready to be seen. This will be my section.
I still have to add a ton of artwork to the walls and pops of color to the bookcase, but I like my beginning. As you can see, I definitely wanted to incorporate gold and lots of it.
Most of the pieces you see are from Ikea, Target or Home Goods. When the office is completely done, I will do a full write-up with links. Stay tuned!! I’m trying my hardest to do this on a budget because we don’t want to break the bank but I still want to really enjoy the space while I am in there.
And yes, this sign is on my desk and it is for real and I love it and it is staying and that’s that. End of point.
Looking at my heels, this is what I hope to do to that corner. I want to put a piece of furniture alongside the wall for storage and have a round conference table in front of it.
To continue with the concept of COLOR POPS, I need to find a kick a** chair – something super BOLD. I really would LOVE to find a BRIGHT PINK chair and I’m willing to spend $$ on it. I’ve been all over the web searching for it too. The hunt continues!!!
So, that’s where I am! What do you think so far? I’m having a lot of fun. Honestly – really enjoying myself. Can’t wait to show you the next steps!!
