I have been working on this little home office off and on for quite sometime. I am almost done, and I wanted to show you half today.
This is what I started with. It was a matching bookcase to the one I used in my daycare launchpad below.
You can go here to see it.
I painted the bookcase my Heirloom White and distressed it with a piece of sandpaper and a dark stain.
I went a little crazy with shade of green for about a month. It really isn't my shade, so,
I recovered my magazine holders with just a craft brown wrapping paper. I keep office supplies and my older copies of magazines that I just can't part with yet.
I love the mail sorter. I still can't believe I got that at Saver's. Should I paint it yellow too? Anyway, I love it because it helps me remember to mail my birthday and anniversary cards on time. I really do need all the help I can get in that area.
I found the olive green locker boxes at The Dollar Tree and liked that combo a lot more. I keep office supplies, my label makers, and receipts in them.
I wanted to add a cork board to the back of the bookcase and found these cute little frames in my stash.
To give them a little character, I stamped some sunflowers on the cork.
They were white, but, I thought the yellow would tie them in with my yellow office chair.
The old milk can was passed down to us by my husband's mom. It was on a farm from her childhood.
Oh, and the best part. I touched up the paint on the little bit of wall next to the bookcase. Wow, my kids knock the tar out of it. I love how nice it looks -- for a while.
Thanks for stopping by,
