Extreme Office Makeover

A few weeks ago I mentioned to you guys that I was having a hard time keeping motivated and organized and part of that was because my home office was a DISASTER. I really needed to create a place where I could work without wanting to tear my hair out. Project: DONE.

I started by rearranging the furniture, moving the two largest bookcases across the room from each other to kind of separate my office nook from the rest of the very long room. I also moved the computer desk against one wall instead of under the window so that I could hang a peg board above it and my Vampire Diaries calendar beside it.

I also undertook a bit of an art project to fill some of the space above the peg board. We have pretty high ceilings in this house and large areas of blank white walls just make me feel anxious. The entire makeover cost me ZERO dollars.

I made the pegboard myself using some  scrapbooking paper, some cardboard and an old frame. I also added some of my Get Glue stickers.

Hanging above the peg board I painted some old frames I wasn’t using, typed some of my favorite quotes & song lyrics onto some of my favorite photographs, matted them on bright paper and clustered them all together. I’m really happy with how they turned out.

The wall opposite is still a blank canvas but I’m thinking of doing one larger collage over there. We’ll see.

Do you like it? Could you work here? Let’s hope I can!
