One Room Challenge Fall 2017 - Week 7: The Reveal

My office makeover is finally here! It's reveal day for the One Room Challenge Fall 2017 edition! If you've been following along you know I'm tackling my office makeover. I selected this room because it was out of control. It had turned into a storage room rather than an inspiring workspace. To get caught up on my progress so far, you can check out Week 1 (The Plan), Week 2 (Painting) and Week 3 (Stencil Tips), Week 4 (Furniture Makeover), Week 5 (New Metrie Door), Week 6 (Outlet update, Chair-upcycle).


Here is a peak of what it looked like before - more pics can be found here.


I feel this space has been transformed into a 1920's San Franscico writing studio (kinda Gatsby-esque). It is the perfect juxtaposition of masculine and feminine in work space design. You'll notice I reused a lot of the existing furniture pieces because when things work they work. Some of the new elements that really elevate this space include; the Metrie Fashion Forward glass door with an oil rubbed bronze New York door knob from Nostalgic Warehouse, the Legrand light switch plates, the wall stencil and sconces from The Home Depot.










Another item that I love in this room that might go unnoticed is the wooden hammer under my pin board. My Dad hand-carved this wooden hammer for his brother who, like my Dad, was really good with his hands (he built his own home from scratch and even carved his own violin). When my uncle received it from my dad he joked that he tried using it and it got a big dent in it (typical of the men in my family to laugh off something that gets them a bit choked up). My uncle passed way in January and unbeknownst to my dad, he had had this hammer on his desk for years. After his passing my dad handed it down to me stating that I'm pretty handy - this was such a wonderful recognition from my Dad, almost a passing of the torch, an encouragement to continue to follow in the great footsteps of my creative/handy lineage.

    1. Thanks Tim! I'm really happy with how it turned out. I agree that chair is my favourite too - I wanted to use it as my desk chair but it didn't fit under the desk (bummer).
