Office Update

OK, Here's the Honest Truth...

Life with 3 kiddos has pretty much taken over. I admit, I have been somewhat lazy these past few months when it comes to home decorating, cleaning, motivation to do anything... OK, maybe not that extreme. But I guess you could say I took a little break! 

There are just sooooo many things on my To Do List, and the hours in the day are never enough. 

All the BIG plans for the house get pushed back week after week.
BUT...I have made a NEW resolution, and now that summer is soon approaching, It's time to get serious!!  

But...with that being said, I do have a few pictures to share

Remember this room??

(Yes...Very sad I must admit!)

I have made "SOME" progress in the office?! 

The Office is FAR from where I want it to be, but for now I thought I would show the room in the state it's currently in. 

I do have to say I enjoy the space for the present time, the office is nice, bright and a warm. 

So I'm not complaining to much (wink,wink) 

I have SUCH big plans for this room!! 
If I could ever find the time to do it..Ahhhhh!!

One of my plans for the space is... Painted wall paper!! 

Curtsey of The amazing blog
  Jones design company

I also want to change the  entire color scheme of the room.

As much as I LOVE green and yellow, as I am SURE you can all tell by now, I don't think it is wise to have it 
in EVERY room!!! hehe :)  

I plan on adding Chandelier shades to the light.
I have been looking at these from Ballard Designs
Or Maybe this ONE...
I have also been pondering on this paint Palette

And the Oooo So popular Pillow from Target
It's pretty much in EVERYONES house...but I LOVE it!!!

Like I said..I am JUST pondering on the idea of these things!! 
we will so what happens in the end :)

OK...Now, Back to the Present...
Pretty much everything you see in the room is what I already owned, minus a few things. 
I had fun digging through my basement, trying to come up with things that would work in the space. 

The yellow and green pillows I still LOVE after owning 
them for 8 years! 
Can you believe it...8 Years! 
You ROCK pottery Barn!!!   

The New items in the room are, 
the chairs- Kmart 
The Desk-Custom 
and the Curtains I found on Ballard Designs 

 I originally got the curtains for the basement, but we are in a bit of a remodel and a storage room mess. So, I thought they would be better kept in the office for now!  

Yes.. We have BIG plans for many rooms in the house! 
So make sure and check back often.

  11. Marsvaty,

    Where did you get the chandy...I love the black with bling but can only seem to find white ones!

  14. Heidi! I have a question about your desk. Did you paint or spray paint your desk. I have a desk really close to it and I want to paint it white and I keep wondering about painting or spray painting it. What do you suggest?

    Maybe chandy wasn't a good choice of words for all the non meant chandelier. I'm Utah local so I can go anywhere in SLc area. Thanks!

  16. Hey June and Megan...The Chandelier is a Thomas Light. I am not sure if they still make it or not. I have tried looking for it just recently but haven't had much luck.

    The desk was painted by my cabinet guy. But I do have a friend that
    re- does all her own furniture and she uses spray cans. Hope that helps!!

  17. Simply have good taste! My favorite the barn doors in the boys room. Can't wait to see what you post next!

  18. Love the desk. Is it a repurposed item or did you have it custom made?
