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!

I LOVE how this turned out! It would inspire me to actually get work done if my work space was this beautiful! Nicely done!
You created such a striking room! That washi tape wall treatment is a genius idea!
Sherry this room is so GLAM!!! That chandi is gorgeous and I just love how you tied everything together with the gold accents everywhere. Such a bright and inspiring place to work in. And what a steal on that desk….the decor gods were smiling down on you that day 😉 Congratulations on finishing your new office!!!
Sherry ~~ This room is amazing! I absolutely love the white and gold color combo. The wallpaper trick is to die for. And that pink chair nestled in the corner. Perfect! So thrilled for you and your new room! Now it’s time to enjoy! XOXO ~~ Susie from The Chelsea Project
This is my first time visiting! Found you through the ORC link up! What an amazing reveal. I love the creativity and cost effective elements within your space. You couldnt find a gold stapler so you sprayed one?? YES!!!! Love that! A girl after my own heart! That DIY accent wall is also extraordinary! Pinning it right now!!
Thanks for inspiring!
You did an amazing job on your office transformation. That light fixture is certainly a show stopper and really ups the glam factor of your office. I am still crushing on your tape accent wall and now I am thinking I might do something similar in my daughter’s room. Wall paper scares me so much that tape might just be the answer.
WOW! I love it! What a beautiful transformation. I love all the gold accessories and how you created that accent wall! Who wouldn’t want to work in here now 😉

This looks so lovely! The wall with the tape, brilliant! And the touch of blush in the chair with the beautiful gold touches, perfect compliments. And I really love the shelves with the mixed frames. Fabulous job!!
This is so beautiful! That chandelier is gorgeous, but I’m also loving that huge, white desk. I would never want to leave my office. An amazing ORC project-way to go!
The white and gold is so glamorous! I would love to work in this space! That wall treatment is so cool, I need to try it!
Such a pretty room, can’t go wrong with GOLD! I can’t believe the wall paper is tape, that is a really great idea and it looks awesome. Wonderful job!
Outstanding! Such a sophisticated put together office. I love all the gold and the chandy is fabulous! I am also partial to the poodle bookend- how fun! Well done my friend.

Oh my friend, are you still pinching yourself? It turned out so lovely and elegant. I can’t decide my favorite element…that oh so perfect light fixture or that desk (that I still can’t believe you found at a thrift store or that you recovered that desk chair with a thrifted coat! You rocked it my friend.
Sherry this is an amazing makeover and I can’t believe that is gold tape on the walls. I might have to try that. 🙂
Sherry, You office space is amazing! Between the great deal you got on the desk and that lighting fixture, I have to say those have got to be my favorites in the room, but everything you did just turned out beautiful. I sure which I had an office like yours!
Nicole Q-Schmitz says
I LOVE all the pops of gold, and spray painting a thrift store fun was such a great idea! Now I need to find one to DIY too 🙂
Toni | Small Home Soul says
Wow Sherry, your office is so beautiful! I love that scored so big on the thrift store desk, lucky girl. All the touches are beautiful, the “wallpaper” the gold pops around the room, that old phone. It all came together to be a lovely space and one I know you will enjoy for a very long time.
What a beautiful job! I love that you did so many affordable DIYs and yet it look!
