Office Renovation

Since we are finally finished with the renovation of my office, I wanted to show it to you!  The biggest transformation was removing most of the wall that enclosed the closet and turning it into a built-in desk alcove which we painted a light, bright coral color.  The alcove is the new home for my computer, scanner, printer, etc.  It makes the room feel so much bigger and I really like having my digital space separated from my painting and sketching space!!  I am really happy with the results and feel more productive and happy here already.  We attached sheet metal to the walls around my painting desk to create magnetic boards.  Now I can easily put up useful research and sketches and remove it when I am moving on to a new project.  My painting desk is a corner unit that came from IKEA.  The wall organizer rod that features the little white buckets I keep brushes in came from the kitchen section of IKEA and has been great.  It keeps a lot of the clutter off of my desktop!!  We used some vintage looking knobs in two styles to add a bit more of an eclectic look to the built in desk.
I already knew this, but it is amazing what a difference a little color and better organization can do for your daily life.
