Hello.......my name is Julie welcome to my blog.  I am a new blogger and this is my very first post.  Today I will share some before and after pictures of my office redo. This room was my daughter's playroom.


        

As you can see there was just the subfloor.  We ( meaning my husband) put down new flooring that we purchased at Home Depot.  The pine board leaning against the open closet was the top of our entertainment center.  My husband and I took the whole unit apart and reused the pieces.  The board became the top of my desk.  The three drawers became shelves. You'll see those in the after pictures.


                                                                           

MY NEW OFFICE WORKROOM

The walls are painted with Benjamin Moore paint White Dove

Here is the pine board ....my new desk.  To the left of the wall are the drawers from the entertainment center. 




Here is another drawer that was part of the entertainment center.  The pretty flower pictures are hand-painted by my sister-in-law's father who lives in Germany. They are postcards that she sent to me which I kept over the years. The antique clock was purchased at a garage sale, the small picture in the white frame was my daughter's first drawing of a person.  The pretty lamp came from my favorite local consignment shop.  I saved and dried the roses that my husband gave me.  



Here is a close up of the drawers decorated with jars of buttons.  The map behind the shelves came from an old nautical map that we had and the pretty crochet pincushion was handmade by my grandmother.


I purchased the magazine organizers at Target.




The large toolbox is from a consignment store
