Home Office

Hope everybody's Tuesday is going well! Still sending prayers for those who were effected by the terrible storms last week. We have bad weather heading in on Thursday and they are predicting almost an entire week of rain for us in South East Tx. The yards have just now started drying out from the last rains we had but I guess after last years drought we can not complain. 

Today I am going to share a room in our house that I have not shared in quite some time. I know I have not shared it since we redid the floors last spring. 
Welcome to our home office. This is the view you see when you walk in the front door.

This is the view when you look to the left. How many of you guessed this was the room the frenchy chairs ended up in? Probably only few who have been following me awhile would have known. 

My assistant is gauging the lighting and making sure I don't forget a shot!;) If you want to see the Before of this room you clan click HERE. That post will even show you how I transformed these $50 bookcases!

Speaking of the book cases I finally got around to staging them. Shelves and me just don't mix. I have the hardest time figuring them out. I guess I just need to think of them as our fireplace mantle. I never have issues with that.

Can you guess where The Hubster went to school!?;) I had to promise to work these in the room somehow. He was not so keen on me designing his office since it was his but I promised him that I could make it flow with the rest of the house but still make it masculine and have his stuff in it.

This piece I painted back in the fall when it was still scorching hot outside. Pardon all the wires. Just keeping it real. I am still trying to hunt down some baskets that will fit as storage and that will help solve the wire situation as well.
The Hubster has had this lamp since he was little. The Papa made it for him and yes it actually works! The boys just love it and want one in their room but sorry guys this is one thing your daddy won't be giving up.

Here is one of my dumpster diving treasures. A neighbor had actually thrown it away awhile back and I saw it on the way home after dropping the boys off at school. It was just sitting there next to the trash can. I was not sure it worked but I grabbed it anyways.  I had not put a battery in it until I started snapping these pics and sure enough it still works! It amazes me what people will throw away sometimes.



The chairs are right at home in here and thus I am now not in any rush to change out the fabric on them though I do wish they were lighter.

Curtain tiebacks came from HobLob several years ago. I think I actually purchased them when we were still living in Baton Rouge so probably more than a few years ago. I lucked up and found the curtain panels at Tuesday Morning. They are actually what started the whole office transformation.

I love the three little windows here. 

And of course I could not have a room without something from HomeGoods in it!;) As soon as I saw this wall piece it had to come home with me. The letter F was actually an E. For some reason Kirklands does not carry many items with the initial F for some reason so I had to make due.

So there is our home office and believe it or not it all came together for less than $500 if you do not count the new addition of the frenchy chairs and yes, I know those chairs are actually called Louis XV Chairs but I just like saying frenchy!;) Thanx for stopping by! Oh and if you wanna learn more about the paint treatment I used on the walls yo can click HERE.

Linking up to the following Linky Parties:


See ya back here tomorrow evening for Treasure Hunt Thursday!

  13. Except for hanging the drapes, setting up the bookshelves and putting in my own little desk {out of the way}, our home office is my hubby's to do with as he pleases. Luckily, I am able to persuade him along a certain path. : )

  26. I'd say you nailed it for Mr. Lapin, what did he say?

    The clock and meter light are awesome. I also realized I might have to think twice about moving my little office to an unused living room. Mine is never clean and it would be the first thing you see when you walk in the door!
