a Dream {home office} Come True

After 6 years in my house, and using my dining room table as my desk/office, I finally tackled my office project, with the help of Madelynn Hop & Co.

I had two main wishes for this bedroom-closet-storage-room turned office project:
  • A dining room table for my desk, as I like to spread things out while I am working
  • Either a large chalkboard OR a chalkboard 
I had already purchased my desk chair, so we had to work around that as well. 

After the first dining room table I ordered arrived damaged, Maddy helped me find this one from AllModern. Then the look was complete with "puff" ottomans {in asparagus}, which match my chair perfectly.  I seriously just want to schedule meetings here now.

Another item which I ordered prior to the start of the official remodel was a large print banner made by threefeatherdesignstudio.  Check out her stuff...its quite amazing, and she does custom orders as well. 

Unfortunately I don't have much closet space in my bedroom {or perhaps I have too many clothes}, so I have to utilize the closet space in my office.  We used a neutral color Belgium linen fabric that blended well with the color of the walls, but added a fun element of design to the space. 

For wall decor I ordered two {2} Modular Galvanized Magnetic Wipe Boards and a Galvanized Framed Cork Board {arriving in August} from Pottery Barn.  I love being able to display things like pictures, invitations, inspirational quotes, to-do lists etc.  

Oh my, I absolutely love office supplies, and had so much fun accessorizing my desk, shelves and baskets.  Most of the items, including the rustic glam light fixture,  were purchased from Pretty In Paint, here in town. 

I truly love everything about the office, but perhaps my favorite part is how Maddy was able to incorporate my love of running, while maintaing the rustic-chic feel of the space.  

A chalkboard wall...I can't wait to continue to add to the creativity of the space!

I couldn't be happier with my industrial-rustic-chic office with a few splashes of glam.
