I'm back working on the office project we began last fall which I embarrassingly deserted for more exciting things over the spring and summer. Yes, I'm bad about abandoning projects for long periods all for the sake of a good time; but what the heck, YOLO.
Besides, the space is finished and functional for the most part. I had only to organize the files and the work surface before I could call it done. Why are the small details always the hardest?
Definitely quite a bit of disorganization and unfinished filing...
And after redesigning the file cabinet fronts, I should have had that finished long ago.
In all honesty, I'll admit that I was secretly hoping our master bedroom would only be temporary housing for the office as my husband came to his senses on the matter. But I had to claim defeat in the battle, and the office in the master is here to stay. With that settled, I'm now on a quest to make it a little prettier.
As we worked on this space last fall, it was filled with quite a few diy's. So I'm finishing it off with one last one by painting the office accessories gold. I love how doing this quick trick ties all the elements on the desktop together.
And I really like how the gold goes with the acrylic pieces I've been collecting. The two keep the work surface feeling light and clean.
This acrylic tray was an inexpensive project I did as a way to corral all the necessary little things.
Adding a few bud vases contains the bits and pieces in a way that's easily accessible.
And a dressed up thrift store clipboard now holds my calendars.
As a final finishing touch, I incorporated a couple of dressy pieces so that office space now feels like an integral part of the bedroom rather than a poorly planned addition.
Now that all the clutter is in its proper place, I can finally call this space done - just in time for my laundry room project...
