Our home office/craft room was originally used as a storage room/dog’s room. It had pink and blue walls and pink carpet from the previous homeowners. One day we realized that this room was bigger than the room we were using as an office and decided to swap rooms. Here’s how it turned out…
We replaced the pink carpet with white laminate flooring, painted the walls black (one wall is painted with black chalkboard paint) and filled the room with book cases and desks from Ikea. I went with a wall of Expedit Book Cases that created tons of storage.
I wanted to incorporate all of our interests and favorite things into this room. I am very into music. So I decided to line the doors of the book cases with magazine clippings and covers from my favorite band and singer Gwen Stefani (I am a little obsessed).
There is sports memorabilia from my favorite teams and players. I have some of my favorite shoes on display because I am into fashion. My husband loves to drive so I added some travel art and pictures.
Despite the fact that it is a black room, it is very bright and fun in this home office. I spend a lot of time in this room blogging and doing projects so I wanted it to be a fun place to be in.
