Sneak Peek . . . "Before" Office Makeover

This is the "before" of my office . . . I've finally assembled all the pieces for the makeover, and they are either here or on the way .  . . so here are the "before photos". I'm warning you . . . the room is pretty awful!

When I first moved in, all the photos were in color, but I've been slowly changing them to all black and white.

So, to give you a sneak peek . . . here are some of my inspiration photos for the room!

I love the chandelier with the black shades.

I'm inspired by the black bookcases on either side of the window.

I'm thinking of something like this . . . with black shades.

I like this for a rug! My business colors are light teal blue (think Robin's Egg) with black and white damask.

Yes, another chandelier . . .

. ..  and another!

I also plan to redo a chair I'm going to buy at a thrift store and make it over with fabric and paint. 

What do you think? I can't wait for the furniture to arrive, and to get to work on the many projects that this makeover will involve!!

Here is my starting to-do list:
  • Paint the mats on all my photos
  • Find a chair to makeover, paint and silver leaf chair, reupholster
  • Rearrange furniture
  • Move small bookcase out (using it for another project)
  • Install chandelier (Score! My sister had two she isn't using, so one will go in my office, and the other into my kitchen . . . more on that later!)
  • Paint storage boxes
  • Line the back of the bookcases with damask paper.
  • Rehang client photos
I'm sure there are dozens more items to do, but those are the biggies! Can't wait to get started!!
  • Put together new bookcases, install over desk and cabinet

  1. I love your ideas! I can't wait to see the result of this make over. I'm actually looking for office furniture NYC stores where I could find affordable, chic chairs. If you happen to know one, let me know.


I adore lovely comments! Thank you for taking time to write to me! You ROCK! I'm sorry for the word verification, but I get way too many spam comments without it!
