Hi, everyone! I hope that you're having a great weekend!
I've been changing things around in our office, so I thought I'd give you a peek today.
(Disclaimer: It's really hard to get good pics in this room because of the funky light situation!)
The last time you saw our office was in this post where I had added some bluish green tones.
I enjoyed it for awhile, then decided to go back to a more neutral palette in here.
Since I spend a lot of time in here blogging and on Pinterest, etc., I wanted it to reflect my style a little more. I'm going for a farmhouse vibe.
I started by switching up the top of the dresser that's in here. This piece is great storage for a lot of my decor mags!
You may remember that I had this heavy lavabo (French sink) filled with dried lavender in our bedroom (here.) I thought it would look pretty on this dresser in the office, so I brought it downstairs when Keith wasn't home...I could BARELY lift this thing-I think it weighs as much as I do-but I was impatient and wanted it moved NOW!
Lo and behold, a couple of days later I bent over to put my socks on and my back went out! I was in bed last weekend for 2 days. The things that we do for our decor! (But that's a story for another post :)
I added some other fun things to create the vignette including a chippy shutter, a pile of grain sacks on an ornate metal tray, a little blingy pumpkin, an architectural candle holder, and a wooden 'disk' I was told was somehow used at a railroad crossing.
I have the leather chair on one side of the dresser...
...and I brought in the slipcovered chair from the sunroom (here) and put it on the other side...
I just rediscovered this vintage needlepoint rug that was 'forgotten' in our basement. I actually put it in a garage sale that my parents had last weekend but when it didn't sell (and I only had $10 on it!) I thought about trying it in here.
Now I'm glad that it didn't sell! I like the soft color and texture that it adds.
Next the real fun began...styling all of the built-in shelves!
Today I'll just show you the shelves behind the slipcovered chair.
I collected lots of favorite things...
...and went to town! What? You didn't actually expect books to be here, did you-lol!
(Actually, there are magazines in holders on the upper shelf ;)
I'll show you more of the office next time...
Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your day :)
