It is the end of the One Room Challenge and we made it…barely!
If you remember, my inspiration were these beautiful Pottery Barn Cabinets, but there is no way I could spend $3,500 on a cabinet x2 to fit the space.
When you can’t afford what you want, you DIY it.
I took stock Easthaven drawer cabinets from Home Depot to create the bases of my built ins.
Using 2 sheets of 3/4″ inch plywood and 2 sheets of shiplap paneling to create the top portion of the built ins. I trimed it out with 1x2s.
Lots of caulk, wood fill, and paint to make it look finished.
Then onto the fun stuff….decorating. I swear to you, it seemed like I had way more business/design books than what it looks like.
I created a reading corner using a chair and a table/lamp. You’ll notice the pillow has the same hexagon shape as the floor.
On the opposite wall, I was able to have my great-grandparent’s ice box brought into the room. This is one of my favorite things and I love that it fit in my office space.
I’m still in disbelief that this is my office!
