So, I’ve had a few people ask were did ‘this’ come from or where did you find ‘that’. Let me preface this by saying, I do things on the cheap but did splurge on the cabinetry. Most everything in here was purchased at Ikea. There are a few things that I have gotten from Target as well (see my little rescued lamp? he wasn’t tattooed at the time of this picture…bless it)
So without further ado, here are some of the sources that you can check out
1. Shelf bracket from Ikea the shelf board is just cut lumber from Lowes. I painted the brackets and the shelf with the same (leftover) paint from the white stripe in my dining room. The color is Sherwin Williams Shoji White.
2. Curtain panel from Ikea the panels come white and I painted the stripes on there with the leftover paint from the office walls. The color is Sherwin Williams Amazing Gray.
4. Storage Boxes from Ikea these come in 3 different sizes. My favorite little surprise with them is they have grey/white gingham as the inside pattern! <swoon>
5. Wall storage system this fun system has many different options. Baskets, buckets, planters OH MY!
6. Ballard office cabinets these beauties are really the foundation of the whole office. I knew that our storage needs were severely lacking in the old layout, and these have transformed how our office functions.
I have already shared with you the desk pad, but I’ll link the source here as well in case you decide that you can’t go one more day without one. Believe me when I say YOU CAN’T! ha
The other items that I have gotten asked about are the painting, the calendar and the desk itself.
The painting was a birthday gift from my husband. Our friend Katie painted it. She is so talented and took one of our photos from a vacation and worked it into a masterpiece. This painting is the focal point for a reason. You ROCK Katie!
The calendar was made using an old ugly framed picture that I had stashed away for whatever reason (almost gave it to goodwill not too long ago). I’ll have a tutorial soon on it. Start gathering supplies now, it’s a fun one! You’ll need a frame (preferably something ugly so the after picture is a big wow), fabric, vinyl and a Silhouette machine. Needed a reason to get a Silhouette, now you have it!
The desk is just sanded plywood cut and pieced together. I had a carpenter come in and do it. I drew it out and had measurements ready to go, but he got to do the fun part. This sucker is huge and HEAVY! It rests on the Ballard cabinets along one wall, a cleat on the back wall. On the ‘floating’ section of the desk we have Mam’s Book case supporting the end (there is a support leg in the center of the desk just in case one of the kids decides to dance on top of it…).
Well I think that is all, but if you have any questions or comments just let me know!!
Have a great weekend.
