ONE ROOM CHALLENGE-WEEK 1
It’s time for another round of the One Room Challenge. The One Room Challenge, hosted by the amazing Linda of Calling it Home, is a a 6 week challenge for bloggers to take one room and make it over. This is my 4th ORC, last year I did our great room-see the reveal HERE.
This time I’ll be tackling our home office. I love a challenge and this room will definitely be a challenge! In it’s current state it’s my least favorite room in our home. But boy does it have so much potential, and I can’t wait to start making it over.
Our office is to the left of our front door, and easily visible. I had it painted a milk chocolate color when we moved in 7 plus years ago. It has a random corner desk and a large oddly shaped built in… It needs a serious makeover. I’ll share the current state below but first the inspiration that sparked this makeover.
This is the office of Sapphire Diaries and designed by House of Jade Interiors. I fell in love with this office the minute I saw it. The french doors, natural light, and large white built in are common elements of our home office. I also love how the desk is positioned in the middle of the room, and we have room to do that in our office.
I will be using some things that we already own and have a small budget but with some creativity and hard work I know this office will come together in a beautiful way. Here’s the plan.
We have a farmhouse table that I’ve used for years as a craft/homework table. Right now it has a chalkboard table top, and cream legs. I will paint it a bright white and use that as our desk. This office will be used by both myself and my husband and the table will give us plenty of space so we can both use it as a partner desk. Honestly I’d love to buy a new gorgeous desk, but I’m trying to stick to a budget with this project and will save a considerable amount by using what we own and re-purposing it.
THE BEFORE-OH IT’S BAD!
Brace yourself! I really can’t explain what was happening in here, we just didn’t make this space a priority. Now it’s time for some big and much needed changes.

1. PRIME AND PAINT THE DESK
