Office Redo........

So messy & torn apart!
Here it is...almost complete. Just a few tweaks- like cutting off the rest of the curtain tabs & adding black rings, adding my newly ordered pottery barn coir bound rug, & finding baskets for the formerly painted white bookcase that is now sporting a black color. We added a new chandelier that replaces the frilly tole one & I am loving the new look! I will show you a project that is inexpensive, sentimental and fills one of the walls with black frames soon. I love how accents of black against a white background looks so crsip & clean. For now, this is where we are at & I am a happy camper! I have to add that my husband is a saint. He's been painting whatever I ask without a rolling of the eyes lately. I think he knows that this winter cabin fever gets to me & that I need to freshen up to lift my spirits. We also have a wedding in June & I want the house to look fresh & up to date with the look I am loving now. It's funny how your decorating evolves & changes. I couldn't get rid of the pink (although not that much) & the frills fast enough. Gone & I feel more settled & happy. Posting more pics of the office in steps & my inexpensive project later in the week. Have a wonderful rest of the week my blog friends! xoxo
