My Office Makeover

Hey my loves,

a couple of days ago I talked about my living room makeover and there I mentioned that my office is now in the bedroom. I’ve created a little area in my bedroom to hold a small office, so that when I have people over and am in the midst of a paper or else I don’t have to worry about the mess. It’s also nice to have a area that is a designated office.

The Before

Unorganized & Messy

My bedroom was painted in a dark brown when I took it over and since I hated that color I decided to rip the wallpaper off and replace it with a dusty rose wallpaper, making one wall the focus since the other side is completely covered in my wardrobe.

Like I mentioned before, my office used to be in my living room and I did not have enough storage space. As you can see I only had a table top and one ALEX drawer from IKEA. So I always had everything out.

The space where my office is now used to be a makeup area, which was there for probably a month before the shelves fell off the wall. Then I bought a dark MALM drawer chest from IKEA, but never really used it.

As soon as I knew that I would create a little space for my office I was so sure that I would get rid of that dresser, but as it turns out I actually can put it to good use. It now resides in my hallway and functions as a storage unit for my scarves, extra socks, loungewear and extra bits.

Since I knew what I wanted for my office space I actually did not create a mood board. I knew I wanted a new table top and legs, because my old ones just used up too much space. I had these: Lerberg Legs (in white). I also knew that I needed some form of storage and room divider. And finally I knew I wanted black accents with office organizers, my office lamp was already black. I have the FORSA desk lamp. I also am pretty happy with my wallpaper so I definitely did not need to change anything major in the bedroom itself.

I also didn’t want to spend a whole lot of money, so everything I got was from IKEA and it works perfectly with the things I already had. Which were the white ALEX chest of drawers, a black table desk lamp, two magazine collectors and storage bins for the KALLAX shelf.

The After

Here is everything I added and changed up:

I’m so excited to really use my office as soon as Uni starts again. I can’t wait to get back to the grind.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin.
