For the last few weeks, I have been doing a few repaint and arts and crafts projects to finish up my home office. While some upsetting life stuff a few weeks ago threw a wrench into some of my plans and fizzled a little of my motivation, it also gave me more free time to finish my projects.
My color palate here for my accessories consists of white and charcoal gray. I repainted several items that I want to reintroduce into my office for functionality:
- Pen and knick-knack container (gray)
- Bookends ( gray and white)
- File cabinet (white)
- picture frames (gray)
Recycled or Recreated
A few other projects I worked on (and am still working on) were done to update the item itself or to replace something I had previously
Clock (Still in the works): I took the mechanics off my broken clock and made a new one from leftover pieces of my desk and some numbers from a craft store. We’ll see how that turns out.
Wall hanger: I upgraded the craftsmanship on this project (a DIY experiment a few years ago) and repainted it to better match the current décor.
I still have some cleaning and organizing to do before I’m finally satisfied. I’m already using the office, however, and I love it! This has been a long journey, but it turned out great! See the finished pics on the next blog post.
If you want to see how any of these projects were done, drop me a comment below!
