One Room Challenge: Home Office week 6

It's here, week 6, which means we are supposed to be done and revealing our finished space. And thank goodness I finished... just barely.

Just for fun here is how it looked just 6 short weeks ago:

and here it is now!

Don't you love it?!!!

I'm sure I'll do some fine tuning on those long shelves, but for now I'm happy with it and  I just love how much better the room looks and feels.  Actually we all love it, the kids have been so sweet and complimentary and they have even been bringing home art projects and saying, "lets put it in the new room" which I love, because now I know they don't hate that we poured so much time and energy into this room, but they are also proud to have it and use it too.

Also if this is your first time stopping by you can catch up on the previous weeks here:

Lets get back to pictures, I know that's why you are here. :)

Here is the view from the front door

I wish I could've also included the entryway in this challenge because it is basically part of this room, but thankfully most of what we have in here will stay so I was able to coordinate the two spaces so that they feel like one.

And this shiplap ceiling was by far the project that took the most time, but was SO worth it, right?

The shelving wasn't a fast project either, but thankfully we got those up pretty quick. I'll tell you more about that later - this was supposed to be a quick reveal and then I was going to get some much needed sleep, but I can't help but explain these photos.

Thankfully at the last minute, before my sunlight was gone, I was able to finally get my artwork in the frames. (I've learned my lesson) But maybe you hadn't noticed :) sources to come on those too.

And there it is, our Home Office.

Even though the last 6 weeks were CRAZY busy, especially the last 3, it was definitely worth it... However I will never do the ORC with a 4 month old baby again, not saying that opportunity may come, but if it does I hope I remember to think twice, haha. Trying to keep a napping schedule when all your baby wants to do is cat nap and nurse made timing a whole lot harder.
But I'm so happy the home office is actually finished. It's so beautiful and cozy, and we all want to spend time in there, even the cat has been in there all day.

So thank you Linda at Calling It Home for hosting this awesome blogger event and challenge. And House Beautiful  for being a media partner.

And I can't wait to catch up, and you can too, with all of the other guest participants and their finished spaces. And if you didn't catch the 20 featured designers you should, so inspiring you guys!

And thank you for stopping by and supporting me through all of this. It's great to hear feedback and get great ideas from you, and please please come back soon especially if you are interested in any sources from my One Room Challenge, or follow me here to know when they are posted.

  1. I love the navy wall! It really makes the room pop. And that light fixtures is so beautiful.
