My office is done! I’ve spent the past few weeks cleaning, organizing, and customizing my home office. In my true fashion, all of the projects have been DIYs! The first week of the One Room Challenge I shared an Introduction with my plan, some inspiration, and before photos of the space. The 2nd week I shared my first project: a DIY Peg Board. I used a huge picture frame and added a peg backing so I could organize many of my craft tools. The 3rd week of the challenge coincided with a high stress time in our home: my husband lost his job. I put the challenge on hold that week. Week 4 it was back to business and I shared more office organization and the fabric backed bookcases I customized. Week 5 was my second favorite project: my DIY acrylic calendar! Going into this project I knew I wanted a large wall calendar to organize my ideas and projects. I did a round up of wall calendar ideas and came across a chic lucite calendar on Etsy but it cost over $1,000! For about $30 I was able to do a knock off version. The very last project was the icing on the cake: a DIY FLORAL FABRIC WALL! It completed the room perfectly! Here is my home office reveal:

The project I “skipped” was floor covering. I found a solid rug and planned to do a painted rug tutorial. I’ve decided at this point to leave the rug as is. I may update it later as I intended to, with an orange greek key design around the perimeter. I also planned to do a separate post for the DIY FABRIC WALL, but then this big reveal post would have been anti-climatic! Check out this tutorial for a DIY Floral Fabric Wall.
