DIY Farmhouse Office Makeover
I’m not sure everyone could get away with such a huge transformation in the workplace, but I don’t see why not! A coworker of mine took it upon herself to make her office “cube” a more inviting and comfortable place to work, turning it into a modern farmhouse! I was blown away by the level of detail. This is a true representation of her style, as your personal space always should be, in my opinion. When we spend as much time as we do at our desks, it’s hard to believe we don’t make more of an effort to make it an enjoyable experience.
Welcome to Donna’s office
This corrugated metal barn door is seriously impressive. How many of us wish we had a door to our office? Maybe you’re feeling empowered to make one now. Better to ask forgiveness than permission!
Looks like it’s simply on a set of wheels to roll open and closed.
I love this nightstand on top of the desk to serve as homey shelving filled with inspiration.
Good ol’ contact paper breaks up the boring gray wall space.
But I like that she kept this portion of the fabric partition to hang a photo gallery wall.
Complete with Edison bulbs and more corrugated metal paneling as a “backsplash”, the theme carries across the whole office. Looks like she put a wood plank over the top above her monitors for more “shelf” space.
I mean, how cute is this? More galvanized metal buckets and green topiaries make the farmhouse style complete. And I love the cute clock in her turquoise accent color. How many of us having a boring clock from the ’60s in our office?
Right down to the cozy rug, this office is PERFECTION!
I’m seriously inspired by Donna’s DIY spirit and ownership of her workspace. Sure, this project was self-funded, but isn’t your workspace worth it in the long run? Plus it’s a great excuse to decorate. This is a place you’d truly look forward to on a Monday morning. Swooning over the sight. Well done Donna!
I’m going to throw out a challenge to “shop” your own house and bring some finds to the office.
If you have an eye candy worthy office, I’d love to see it! Submit your photos to hello@LeahandJoe.com and I may feature you the next time around. 🙂
