The Office.

We are about 80% done with the office.  We’ve come a long, long way.  Here is what the wall where the bookshelves currently reside looked like a few months ago.

Screen Shot 2014-06-04 at 2.44.29 PMThe office was one of the first rooms that we painted when we moved in 12 years ago.  The sofa (which I love) is about as old as I am.  It’s a hand-me-down from my parents.  As you can see, the old door really cut into the room-  not making it very functional.  So….

We took the door off the hinges and moved the sofa to the basement.

Then we started building the bookshelves.

The electrician wired for recessed lighting as well as four sconces over the bookcases.

Added paint (BM Black.)

I painted these sconces (similar here) with Krylon Brass spray paint

and these cabinet pulls with the same paint.

We replaced the swing door with this custom-made barn door that slides back and forth which provides us full access to the bookshelves.

We are installing 3 of these consoles for the base of the desk along the wall opposite from the bookcase.

I’ve also painted the hardware Krylon Gold.

This Tanzania wallpaper by Thibaut went up on the ceiling.

And I’ve been busy styling away.

  Next up: a trifecta of installs- window treatments, countertops and a ginormous bulletin board.

    Beautiful! I love that the barn door hardware matches the wall color, it blends so nicely. The door color is great too! Is the door green on the other side too?
    Thanks for sharing all of this, some fantastic ideas!

    Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous. I absolutely adore your office makeover. The pop of colors against the dark background with the animal print-like wallpaper ceiling makes my heart go pitter patter.

    So delightful. Well done!
