|I am beyond excited to share part 1 of my office reveal today! I've waited so long for a space to call mine, and I am beyond thrilled how it turned out. If you didn't catch my post from yesterday on all my DIYs I did, click here to read.|
Before I decided to do construction on the office, it was originally for Todd to study in. Todd started studying at school for 2 years, and our office became essentially a storage shed. Never clean, and always messy. This room gets the most natural light in our apartment making it my favorite space. During the end of February Todd left to Cincinnati for a week to do an oral surgery externship. This was my shot to finally do what I wanted with the office. I had a full week ahead of me. With Todd gone I was able to have creative freedom, and was allowed to paint and demolish anything I wanted. Te he. I've never had a very good eye for interior design so I put out a Facebook post on a Midwestern Wives Facebook page asking if someone would be willing to help me. Luckily this amazing girl Molly responded, and she was seriously my saving grace. She gave me so many ideas on how to orient the room, and how to put the finishing details together. I honestly couldn't of done this room without her. I would be texting her throughout the week sending pictures, and saying "Hey Molly do we like this?"
From 6 am to midnight for 7 days I was working like crazy painting, sanding, hammering, and spray painting. In a week I got all the frames, bookcases, filing cabinet, desk, boxes, and vanity done. When Todd came back I put him to work, and had him hang up everything. From the end of February to last week I've been slowly putting the rest of the office together primarily because I was waiting for everything else to come in the mail.
The inspiration for this office came naturally because I love the color pink, and bold patterns. I added in the gold to keep things classy, and black/white patterns to keep things fun. My favorite part of my office is my gallery wall. A gallery wall was the center of my focus for the office so I could frame pictures from my favorite shoots.
