It is finally time for my One Room Challenge-White and Gold Home Office Reveal. I took our old home office with a mixture of odd pieces of furniture and transformed the room into a beautiful white and gold home office. Creating DIY Wallpaper with Tape for my accent wall and paint all of the office furniture. The office chair was recovered. A stunning gold leaf chandelier and gold accessories make a beautiful white and gold home office.
One Room Challenge
I just want to remind you first that the ORC or also known as the One Room Challenge is a challenge hosted by Linda from Calling It Home and House Beautiful. Over 150 designers and home bloggers will transform a space and show their final reveal on November 16th. We also received some very exciting news last week. Andy and Candis from Old Home Love will be flying to visit the winner and spend the day with them. You will also want to check out all of the participant’s rooms because you will be blown away by the transformation of each room. If you want a recap, you can visit Week 1, Week 2, Week 3 and Week 4.
Home Office Before
This is the way the home office looked before the makeover. I actually kept many things in this room because it was in perfectly good condition but needed to be updated. The room was a dining room when we purchased the house 15 years ago. We never used the dining room so we turned it into our home office 5 or 6 years ago and it was the best decision for our family. I loved that my kids were always close by when they were working on their homework or playing on the computer. My kids are growing up and they are never at home so it is time to make this office space for me. It needs to look elegant but also be a functional space.
I repainted or recovered most of the decor in the office. The items that are new are my amazing light fixture, thrifted desk, shadow box art, and a few accessories.
Wallpaper one accent wall is desired. I have wallpapered before and I know if I go through the trouble to hang it, I will have to live with it for a while. Some people have used a Sharpie pen for this but I decided to try to use decorative tape and I am very pleased with the results.
Tutorial for the DIY Wallpaper with Tape
I painted the bookshelves with a Homeright paint sprayer and my spray shelter.
If you look at my vision board at the top of the post, you will see that I was planning on purchasing a new desk for the makeover. I can not believe that I found the exact desk that I wanted at my favorite Thrift Store.
This desk has a Z Gallerie sticker on it and it sells for $599.00 and I paid $36 for it. I would be foolish to pass this desk up.
The desk is made with my existing file cabinets by adding a board to the top. This new top gives us so much workspace.
The gallery wall ledge was already in the room and I repainted the frames and changed out the art.
The mauve chair in the corner came from HomeGoods.
I saved a lot of money with that thrifted Z Gallerie desk so I splurged on my light fixture! My husband is in the commercial lighting business so I knew he wants a beautiful and well made light fixture. We found this beauty on the Inline Lighting website and I was in love. When it was delivered and I opened the box, it was even prettier than I expected. It has a beautiful gold leaf finish that is just stunning!
I spray paint a garden stool from a thrift store with gold spray paint.
Do not forget to visit all of the other participant’s room because I know that you will be blown away!
