Stage 1 of my DIY Home Office Makeover: Managing the chaos, planning the makeover and finding inspiration.
The kitchen, done. The backyard, in progress. My home office, a hot mess.
Considering I spend most of my awake hours stuck in this one room, you’d think I would have prioritized this project. But, alas. Life happens.
Well, my friends no more. I’m tired of feeling stressed out the moment I walk into my office. Clutter makes me anxious. And, let’s be honest, clutter distracts. I want my office to be a place I crave to be because the space and my work bring me joy.
It’s awesome to have a job that I love. And being able to do it from home? The best. Over the next few months, I’m going to be putting in the effort to make it reflective of me – I want it to help me be productive, both in functionality and design.
To begin the process the first thing I wanted to do was capture images of my office so that I can know what I want to change. Something about looking at photos, versus the room all at once, makes it a lot easier to see what needs to be fixed.
Alrighty – so here’s my list: Something different for above my desk. Contain the clutter. Figure out a solution for the cords. Get rid of stuff I don’t need or don’t use often.
From there I created a mood board of what inspires me, and then scoured Pinterest for some inspiration for what to do with the main wall that I face… all. day. long.
And that big wall? I’ve got big plans! I added a few ideas to my Home Decor Pinterest board:
Then, I hit up Lowe’s to find some colors to try out. Oh, the colors. I fell in love with the Olympic Paint color selection at Lowe’s.
Exclusively at Lowe’s, the Olympic Paints and Stains Color Center allows people to browse paints and stains in one place. The colors are organized to make finding and comparing shades easier than ever. Room brochures are arranged to allow shopping in 3 ways: Color (through the chips); Lifestyle (through the lifestyle brochures); Project (room and project brochures).
I found these curated colors by theme and mood especially inspirational!
The paint department team members were so helpful when it came to assisting with color selection and I got these sample Olympic paints to take home with me and see what works!
Can’t wait to share how things progress! The end project is going to be FUN!
