The Office Reveal

Well the good news is my office looks amazing (in person), the bad news- its not too photogenic.  Both my photographer and I have tried taking pictures and we think it just comes down to the lighting.  The morning sun comes blasting in and the afternoon sun is nowhere to be found- due to the neighbors house next door.  So I figured I’ve been waiting long enough to show it to you.  But lets just take a look at the before shall we:

         *****With the black & white vertical drapes******************

NOW:  With my DIY- horizontal stripe drapes— MUCH better

This is the side of the room that just did NOT turn out well.  Because my office has to also function as a guest bedroom I decided to make the twin bed more sofa-like.  I made the upholstered headboard and used diamond-like buttons for the tufting.  

More detail photos: HERE

There you have it.  I hope to have more detail photos sometime next week.  Have a great weekend!!

    Hi Amanda, I’m sitting outside in my garden drinking a pumpkin latte looking at and reading about your STUNNING office! It’s so glamorous, chic, and functional. I think the pictures are magazine worthy. I can’t think of how you could have made it any better? I’ll take one!

  29. Jean @ Flower Hill says:

    Very nice job! Love those striped drapes and the dresser!

  30. Kelly says:

    Those drawers are phenomenal! Where is it from? I am envisioning a DIY pattern – so cool.

  31. Dori says:

    Yes it’s fabulous, but I don’t see how it is functional with not a pencil or file folder in sight for office work… I would be worried to not mess up the space with my paperwork and files.

  32. Ann says:

    Wow, this is gorgeous!
