Part 16 Home Tour: Office Makeover Reveal

Chic Office - Coral and Mint, for the Girl Boss! IKEA finds, and full of craft room & home office ideas

It’s almost as if there’s a feeling of “Now what?” as I reveal my home office makeover.  Why?  Because I’ve been teasing promising you for so long, that I’d have it done soon, and it seemed as if I kept finding ONE more thing that would just look PERFECT for the office, so I needed to wait one more week before the photo shoot.

I’m happy to say, I finally found that “ahhhh,” moment, and decided it was time to reveal.  (You know, the day after my new white Keurig came in the mail.  I had to wait for that new beauty.)

I’ve always been fond of the mint and coral color scheme, that I had in my first office reveal, in our initial home tour, when we moved in.  So I left that alone, but maaaaaybe added (and improved) a few items.  So now I’m super excited to show you my happy place, that people practically have to pull me out of.

Home Office Makeover Reveal

First, a quick spin through the whole office, and then we will get zoomed in on some of the specs…

That’s a brief little 360 degree tour. Now let’s get down to the nitty gritty, and some details.

The Desk: Where the Magic Happens

Ok, I shouldn’t say “magic,” but it is where I spend a lot of my “let’s get down to business,” chats. Whether that’s on Skype, or Facebook “live.”  It’s also where I do a lot of concentrated work. Such as, finalizing details over a sponsored post, writing an ebook, creating an online course, or anything that needs some serious attention.  Regular ole blog posts are typically created on-the-go, or in my living room on the couch, during nap time.

“Hands On” Area

I’m not quite sure why I call this the “hand on,” area… but it is the area where I do most of my crafting, photo-taking, and coffee making. So “hands on,” just seems appropriate.

** See that photo up there?  We’ve been together since our freshman year, and that’s our first photo taken together, at the age of 14.  I sure don’t even remember what life was like before he fell in to it.

So I can hear some of you now… “Seriously? You have a coffee maker in your office?” You bet. Want to know why?  Because if I run out of coffee, and need to run upstairs for a refill, there’s a chance I’ll get so distracted (either by the kids or dirty dishes), and waste up to 30 minutes of my day, for one trip for a quick cup of coffee.  So having it right there by me, guarantees I’ll stick to the nitty gritty of gettin’ things done.

Shhh… Yes, that’s RumChata in my coffee bar.  How else do you think I get through the work day?  Totally kidding.  I promise there’s other creamer options available.  But at times, those RumChata creamers DO break out.

IKEA cart for her stationary! Ahhh! Love it.

I absolutely ADORE having all of my stationary in one place.  This makes it so easy to write up a thank you note, fill out a birthday card, or replenish my planner with notepads!

IKEA spice racks turned in to bookshelves. Ahhh! So cute.

I have such a crush on those spice racks from IKEA.  If you saw my son’s room reveal, then you saw that I painted them dark brown to match his room, and used them as book shelves too!  They’re so perfect for that!

Rolling Cart (Buy HERE) // Book Shelves (Buy HERE) I bought shelves unfinished, and painted myself.

Some days I’ll spend 8 hours of uninterrupted time, down in my office.  So just like someone that works away from home, I love having photos of my family to stare at, during the day-dreaming minutes.  Lining the ledge are pictures from super special moments in my life, from the birth of my babies, to vacations with my hubby.

So there it is! It’s my ultimate happy place!  Now please… PLEASE don’t let me find something in at least, less than a year, that tempts me to re-do my office all over again! I just don’t think the people around me can take it!  The curse of a creative mind… always wanting to change something.
