My Home Office is Coming Together!

img_2423I think the hardest part of buying my first home was restricting my desire to want to immediately decorate and finish every room up to my liking. I simply can’t afford to do that so I’m taking it one room at a time.

I just love how my little home office is shaping up! The shelves I’ve had for years. My mom refinished them and my brother and I each had them in our rooms growing up. Same thing with my desk. My dad and I spent a Christmas break sanding and repainting my old furniture. Those are memories I’ll never forget and I’m reminded each time I look at it.

There’s something about refinishing a piece that has been a part of you for so long. Being able to include that into my first house has been so comforting.

I reupholstered the chair to match my breakfast-nook bench. The fabric was on sale at Ikea. I know, Ikea of all places! I layered the shelves with some of my favorite books. I painted the canvas to bring in all my favorite colors and spray painted an old frame, wine bottles and the letter “C” with Krylon’s gold metallic¬†spray paint.

I’d like to do a lot more with this space but for now, It’s perfectly bright, cozy and quintessential.

What do you think?
