Office Make-Over Time! & Printable!

Posted By: Leah
Today's my last day of having blog sitters while I've been out. 
Vacation's been amazing, but I'm ready to be back with all you ladies! I am so grateful for all the guest posts. This is my final one. See you next week! 

Hi my name is Sharee' over at momFITtingitallin -

the unspoken truth of life as a 30ish working mom and wife while having tattoos, toddlers and truth. I am 32 years old and to me 30's is all about CONFIRMING who you are, growing and enjoying the person/woman you have become and are continuing to be. I am embracing a new sense of myself, my life and my goals. I have found my true happiness with my hubby going on 7 years of marriage. With true happiness comes the two true miracles of our lives. Our babies are the reason we do what we do everyday. I am not only blessed with a great hubby and children but I have a few amazing friends (you will see there names come up for sure), the best family in the world and a career that I accidentally landed in but I think was waiting for me!

Here is a little MAKE OVER.....

When we first bought our house we were so excited to actually have just ONE room dedicated to the office. In our old house we only had 3 bedrooms so office furniture was stored everywhere from our bedroom to the kiddos rooms. SO to have one dedicated place was just beyond words. When we moved in we put all of the items into this room along with a nice chaise that the parents gave us until we could afford or find what we really wanted in our office.

BEFORE the make over:

Since we were over joyed with the space we didn't even think of decorating - okay I didn't think about it - until NOW. With a budget we needed to save and sale items on craigslist. As you can see there really is no decoration to speak of. The only think that I have bought for this place is the antique bill box we have on the bookshelf. We bought that for my valentines day trip antiquing. I also found a nice lamp at Target that matched everything wonderfully.

So what else can be done??? I have answers for you and it all started with this print I found from a fellow blogger.

I saw it and had to have it printed out. The saying matched me to a TEE and the colors oh I love them. Then came the inspiration - chevron, blue, teal and green.

 I ended up finding Chevron pillows at hobby lobby for BOGO and this amazing futon from Target. Add in these amazing decorations that my hubby just adores (from his time overseas) and we have a redecorated room fit for anyone to come visit and me to work.

A Note from Leah: ShareĆ© it looks awesome! I'm inspired to do a little makeover of my own after reading this. And I LOVE the print Kristen made! Those pillows are perfect! I think your home looks fab!  

I've known ShareĆ© for a while now, we first met when she was a customer and I designed her blog's old banner and button. I love her sweet family! We quickly became friends and I now have a very special part of her family that I wear all the time. Yup! She's the girl who is behind my inspiration for THIS POST. Warms my heart every time I wear it. Be sure to read the comments!
