Earlier this year I had the privilege of working with the sweetest 12 year old girl on her new bedroom. She wanted a room that reflected her personality. We went with “California Cool.” This is what it looked like before.
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.
The 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
