Feminine Home Office Makeover
I’m SO excited to finally share my home office makeover with you guys! It has drastically changed from my original design (find it here) since the desk I had originally ordered was never shipped but it’s still the feminine home office I always wanted.
I had searched long and hard for that desk since I wanted a desk that was wider and deeper than a regular desk. The only larger ones I could find were your typical business man desk made out of dark wood. Totally not my style.
My sister recently got a dining room table made by Justin over at Midwest Woodcraft so I reached out to see if he would make me my dream desk. A pink one. I know most wood guys aren’t big fans of painting wood but he jumped on the opportunity and quickly agreed!
Together we created my perfect desk. I showed him one from Anthropologie which I loved (but it was too small). We used some of the elements from that for my desk. In lieu of 5 drawers (2 on either side and one in the middle) we replaced 2 of them with a cabinet that I use for my camera and lenses. I picked out the drawers pulls (again from Anthro) and the paint color (Mellow Coral from Sherwin Williams) so it was exactly how I wanted it.
My desk is the perfect addition for my feminine home office! I highly recommend Justin and Midwest Woodcraft – especially if you’re local!
My gallery wall was a labor of love. It went through about 6 different variations before I got it how I like it but now I’m obsessed!
Here’s a note when it comes to gallery walls – move it around, change things up and try different things even after it’s on your wall! I switched out a ton of the photos for prints, moved an entire row of frames and art and moved things around until I got it right. You can always patch up the holes. 😉
My goal for my gallery wall was to use as many local creative’s work in there as possible! Here are all the places I bought my art from:
I’ve had Cassie from Junah Woods make a few weaves for the kids rooms (you can see Penelope’s here) and had her make one for the office too! I actually ended up stealing Penelope’s from her room since I liked how it looked with my gallery wall and use the one Cassie made specifically for the office over my shelf.
