Office Redesign

I took a long break from posting after our little trip and now I’m back with some updates on the house.  Last week I spent most of the week painting, and it seems that I’ll be doing a lot more of that in the next couple weeks.  It’s amazing what a little paint can do to a room (or hallway or shed, for that matter).   Last week I decided to re-paint the office and change things up because it seemed a little dark and gloomy in there.

The walls before were a nice tan color, but the color just didn’t seem quite right.  We also had mirrored closet doors covering most of one wall, which I didn’t like for several reasons.  First, there were too many mirrors on that side of the room, and second the mirrors had some distortion so I always had a fat head or weird proportions when I walked by.  Third, they were always getting stuck or coming off the track and causing me much (un-necessary) frustration.

So out went the mirrored doors.

And in went the new curtain doors.  So much easier to deal with!

I used a shower curtain rod to hold them up, and I used the same Ritva curtains that we have throughout the house.  Since I don’t have a sewing machine I used the iron-on hemming tape that Ikea provides to make the curtains the right length.

Here are some photos of the rest of the room, complete with new color and curtains on the window.  I took down the blinds because they were kind of a pain, and the curtains work just fine for this room.

What do you guys think?  Do you like the new color?

Hope you all had a great weekend!

    Quick and easy! good job!

  3. Really liking this re-design, Anne. Much brighter, happier, neater, and more spacious. I hated those mirror closet doors growing up. It’s convenient to have a full length mirror on the closet since it’s just blank space, but I totally opt for the cloth closet “doors.” Brilliant, as always! Hugs!
    PS- coming to Tulsa 8/23-30. Would LOVE an OKC or T-Town date with you and Erin!!!!

  4. Thanks everyone! I’m so happy you dropped by, Jennette and Sean!

    Chelsea- I love that Target’s office organization stuff, and I especially like the design on that white one. :)
