Office Makeover

  Before and After!

Our home office was one of the first areas that we “furnished” when we initially brought this home. “Furnished” meaning: filled the room with the biggest furniture that $500 could buy. As time went on I focused on other rooms in our home, almost suddenly it was four years later and I looked in this room and realized, “Oh no-no. All this gots to go.” (Snap, snap for dramatic effect)
You might want to write this down: The first thing I did was tape off the wall,  window, ceiling and floorboards. Then I threw old sheets everywhere, this part is very important unless of course, you’re wanting to replace the carpet too.
The first thing I painted was the ceiling, I just used basic ceiling paint. Then I painted the other walls a lighter color in the same pallet.
Using my silhouette cutting machine, I created a stencil and penciled in the design for the accent-part of the wall. I traced the area first and then stenciled them far enough away from each other that I wouldn’t get wet paint smudges. I did A LOT of touching up by hand.

  1. The “all this gots to go” comment killed me! Too too funny!

    The room looks fantastic! I am definitely loving the stencil wall as well! Should we expect a post on how to keep your office this organized? lol

  2. I LOVE this office transformation. And that stencil makes my heart happy each time I’ve seen it. I have a similar stencil on a kitchen wall, though yours has cleaner lines. So pretty though!
