my office

When you walk in the front of our home, to the right is this room.  It started as my office, then we switched it to be Ryan’s office, then a sitting room and now back to my office {can you tell we’re a little fickle about decorating?}

Anyway, here is the room when we first moved into our home.

And, after hours of painting and a little fluffing, here it is now.


I wrote about the start of the project here & about the chalkboard wall here.

The self-induced motivation seemed to do the trick {albeit a few hours late}.

I’m working on a tutorial for the painted ‘wallpaper’ so stay tuned for that.

Anything you want more details on? I’d love to share : ask away and I’ll post answers this week.

    WOW. I have been looking at the cost of stencils and they are crazy expensive. I love this idea and it is so easy to do. I am going home and starting to stencil!
