I am so excited to finally share today’s room reveal with you guys! When my friends over at P&G and The Home Depot approached me about this project I knew that it would be an experience that I would never forget. Keeping the fun projects in this room under wraps has been really hard, but now we can be besties without any secrets between us again.
If you remember from the behind the scenes post earlier this week, this was a whirlwind makeover. Like 3 days start to finish. That was a first. Also I just realized that there are probably 5 people that are actually reading this part of the post, everyone else has already scrolled down for pictures. So lets join them, shall we?
This space in my MIL’s house was an extra room that really served no purpose other than a second guest room that was never used. We decided to turn it into an office and make it a really beautiful and functional space.
Here is where it began once we had cleared everything out.
And this is what it looks like now:
Alicia really needed a large linen closet, what she had was this guy. Womp womp.
(I am pretty freakin sure that the sliding door is one of my favorite projects of all time.) You can see the full picture tutorial here!
We turned the basic closet into a spot perfect for massive amounts of linen storage. Simply by adding shelves that filled the entire depth. There is just so much room now!
Well I loved them so much that I couldnt stop myself from doing it to an entire wall in Alicia’s Office.
The wall treatment was another fun Sharpie Wall (you can see the first one here! and the tutorial for this one here) I learned a few new things this time around, so you will want to check that one out!
How in love are you with that desk?! Would you believe that it started out as this rust bucket that may or may not have been living on the side of my house for the last 9 months?
These lights were a really simple upcycle from thrifted globe lights. They will cost you less than $10 each!
Lets discuss the cot.
It is just so good. It is from WWII and the frame is in excellent shape. The canvas also appeared to be in great shape until last week when it tore (oopsie). Good thing I have an entire couch that I can skin in my garage….leather upcycle project in the works yo.
I have been saving this vintage topographic map for just the right space. I love the little color moment that it provides.
Can we just talk about the closet door for a minute? There are 3 huge problems that people encounter with sliding barn doors.
1. The hardware is expensive.
2. The doors are heavy.
3. Trying to find a door that is the right size is near impossible.
I killed all of those problems with this one project. I cant wait to show you my secret! Watch the video below to see how easily it glides, you will be super impressed.
And it wouldnt be a complete VR room makeover without a bit of upcycled leather in it now would it!? I used some scraps of leather and rope and a little bit of copper pipe to make these hanging magazine/file holders.
If you remember my MIL’s Living Room Makeover and Kitchen Reno, her style is a little on the masculine side and pretty monochromatic. It was a fun challenge to create a space that reflects her taste.
When I think of sprucing up a space for spring the thought of pastels and tulips come to mind….but obviously that is not going to work. To bring a little bit of springy happiness to Alicia’s office I filled it to the brim with plants from Home Depot. It is so inviting and perfect for her.
There is one word to describe just how I feel about the space….
Here is one of the fun videos that we shot:
The others will be posted at the end of the tutorials that they correlate with, so watch for them over the next week or so!
I am not the only one that is updating spaces for spring. Head over to finditathomedepot.com to see so many more!
So what do you think? Do you love it as much as I do? What tutorial are you most excited about?
