I am writing my first official blog from my new & unpacked office! Yayayayayayaayayay!
Here's a little panoramic shot:
Take a look at the "Before" ...
After lots of tape, paint, and stenciling later...
White curtains & desk from IKEA, you can read about how I reupholstered the thrift store chair here, or how I painted the record player here, and how I refinished the bookcase here.
That's the chandelier I talked about painting in this blog. That frame is from Home Goods, and the photo was taken by our friend, Eric Seo, from the sparkler farewell at our wedding :)
These frames were from Walmart, and I spray painted them white, then painted two of them with Valspar grey ( I think the color was "Hazy Stratus") and the photos are prints of mermaids that I created which you can purchase here for $20 (Free shipping!)
Some detail shots of my elephants' photoshoot, and some inspirational & business books I keep closeby. Below is the mirror I thrifted and painted navy!
And finally, here is the view I see from my desk, of my painting "Underwater Sunshine". (Frame from Homegoods, photos by Kristin Partin Photography, and candle & cabinet from Target.
So there you have it! Oh and let me just mention that I am beyond grateful for my amazing family and friends who helped Ben and I move an insane amount of stuff from the apartment to our home. Have I mentioned that we've moved four times in less than two years? Six if you count the two times we lived temporarily with my parents between apartments... And we've somehow had friends/family still willing to help us move AGAIN? Yeah, we're spoiled. And yeah, we are never leaving this house. Ever ;)
