Home office aka Mom Cave sneak peek

Thursday, February 26, 2015

OMG!  Raleigh shut down today as a result of 1 inch of snow yesterday that melted completely. Now the forecast says we might get a foot of snow!  Good thing I have a bottle of wine handy.

I showed you my home office design board in my last post.  Here's a sneak peek of the update in progress.


I fell in love with the gold and white chevron dish and cup at Pier 1.  They just had to come home with me.  I think they were intended for a bathroom, but they are perfect for my desk. I can't seem to find them online.  If I do, I will add a link.

In the mean time, here's a couple more gorgeous home offices that I have rounded up.

Please pin from original source.

 I can't wait to install the new curtains and chandelier! Stay tuned for more.

 Lisa @ Shine Your Light has a great cornice board tutorial.  I am hoping to use her advise for hanging the new cornice in our bathroom.

Home Office and Craft Room and Guest Room

Monday, February 23, 2015

Thank you for sticking with me after my whining complaining about bathroom lighting.  Since we can't find lights that we love within our budget we are going to get the room painted, hang new mirrors, hardware and cornice.  But first we (Nick) have to fill the nail holes and caulk the molding.

I took advantage of the warmer weather this weekend and worked on some spray painting projects.  My creative design juices have been on over drive as of late and I am bouncing around ideas all over the place!  I got cracking of sprucing up my home office aka craft room aka second guest bedroom.  I didn't want to spend a ton as I don't work from home typically and I don't know how long this will get to stay my girly room since our two boys currently share a bedroom.  I threw together a bunch of stuff that we already head and am making over some finds in order to give the room a cohesive look. Hopefully I will have a real sneak peek for you in the next couple of days. 

Do you have a multi purpose room in your house?  Do you have a girly space of your own or a man cave?

Mirror mirrors on the wall

Friday, January 30, 2015

We finally hung the mirrors ya'll!

I started by laying them out on the floor.  I still couldn't get a good idea of how they would look hung in the corner. Please forgive the horrible lighting and crappy iPhone photos, but they will give you an idea of the process.

Luckily the Target mirrors come with templates printed on the back of the packaging.  I cut them all out and traced the other mirrors onto newspaper and cut them out too.  Then I hung the templates on the wall with painters tape.

Then all we had to do was hammer in some nails and hang the mirrors.  Easy peasy!

And here's the final results!

I am loving how Lisa at Shine Your Light updated her Living Room.  It looks classic, comfortable and just gorgeous!

Gallery Wall of Mirrors

Thursday, December 18, 2014

My handsome hubby's birthday is on Saturday.  As part of his present, I am hoping to hang the gallery wall of mirrors that we have hoarded accumulated.  He wants them hung in the corner to the right of his desk.   I love a good gallery wall.  I love balance and symmetry.  How do you get that with a corner gallery wall?  

Here are some of my favorite M inspiration:

These are clearly unedited or staged pictures.  You can see some of the mirrors that we will use strewn all over the floor.  Here's to keeping it real!

Here is a shot of the corner for reference.

For father's day I swapped out the standing lamp for a tall Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree.  The mirrors would be hung above the chair to the left of the desk and then wrap onto the TV wall.

Any tips for me?  Should I also hang mirrors on the right of TV?

Hubby's Hub (Home Office) Part 2

Sunday, August 17, 2014

I hope ya'll had a wonderful weekend!  We certainly did.  The weather was gorgeous in Raleigh this weekend, perfect for afternoons at the pool and soccer practice.

We are one step closer to getting rid of the boring builder cream paint now that the office has been painted.  As I mentioned in my previous post, we used Benjamin Moore Coventry Gray.  Our goal was to create a masculine gray home office for my husband since that is where he works full time.  I think it has a hint of a Mad Men Feel with the mid-century pendant and chair.

For those of you with Toddlers and Elementary schoolers, I recommend Monopoly Junior.  Our boys love this game and it is loads of fun for the whole family.

Home Office Update

Friday, August 15, 2014

Oh what a difference a little bit of paint can make!  Well, maybe not a little bit of paint, more like a whole gallon. We chose Benjamin Moore Coventry Gray for my Hubby's home office. 

Here is the before:

 Stay tuned for the after...
