The New Home Office

Here it is.  The moment you’ve all some of you have been waiting for.  The Home Office reveal.  It’s hard to believe that back in April Andy and I had a “what if” conversation about this room and now only four months later the dream is reality.
If you are not aware of our ongoing makeover, where have you been?  Here are the “before” photos and a recap:


New Home Office Part One

I shared all of the ideas I had gotten on Pinterest.


Part Two

I revealed the current condition of the “old” room.


Part Three

We picked out flooring.


Part Four

Andy painted the room.


Part Five

A sneak peek of our new coloring space.


Part Six

The magnetic artwork boards were finished.


Part Seven

My love of painter’s tape.




The original goal was to take our never-used front living room

 and turn it into a home office/kid craft/kid homework space. 

I went with a “learn and grow” theme.



This space is truly one we enjoy every day now.

  1. Oooooooooohhhhhh! The floors are amazing! I want that giant ruler growth chart. The giant lamp over the kids’ desk is so welcoming. Looks like the perfect multi-functional space for a young family. Nicely done!
