My Office Overhaul!  2

Hey yall!

Ok, so today is the day that I get to reveal my home office makeover! Let me tell ya, this has been a long time coming. This room has been on the back burner for so long due to other projects. But it is finally getting its chance to shine! And boy does it shine!

So before I show yall the reveal, I wanted to talk about my shopping adventures in getting and gathering all the pieces to make this room complete. I was all over the place grabbing things for this room. Last time I was at the Gibson Mill, I went nuts. Yes. nuts. Mr. Cozy Cat wasn’t with me so I kind of just went all out. Hey, mid-as well go big or go home right?! I was rolling through that place 2 buggies deep. It was absurd I tell ya. But I couldn’t help myself! There were pretty things everywhere I turned. I would be strolling down the aisles, turn my head, and BAM pretty, then I would do the shopping  cart dance–not literally–grab it from the display and put it in my buggy, then I would turn my head the other way and BAM again, another pretty thing. Repeat process. I took my time going through there, slowing looking at everything. I had this vision of an ultimate farmhouse style office, and I could envision it in my head. The pieces cam so naturally.

Now I did shop at other places too for my pieces, but I just had to share my adventure at the Depot at Gibson Mill. I will share with yall where I got everything underneath each picture!

Ok, so back to the reveal! This room before the big change was navy blue. I was having a thing for pops of color 3 years ago, but I have really found my style this past year, yay! So I knew I wanted to paint the room first and foremost. Now I told Mr. Cozy Cat that I would take care of this no problem. How hard could it be to roll paint on the wall? Boy was I wrong! Mr. Cozy Cat was watching as I painted, and I could see him cringing in the corner. I finally turned around and he said he would just do it. Ok, fine with me! I am much more of a supervisor than the doer. He had it done in no time and it was pure magic! I absolutely love the color! It is Secret Passageway from Olympic One.

Ok yall, are you ready to see it??

Here is the before picture:

And there you have it friends! I hope it helped getting the sources for everything! This was by far one of my favorite rooms to decorate! I honestly don’t want to leave this room. However, not much work will get done because I will be too busy staring at everything! I hope you enjoyed the little tour! Now, I’m sure you noticed the baseboards are not completely finished! We still have to paint those up, but I couldn’t wait to post about this space.

Until next time!
