Office Makeover No2....

Way back in early 2015, I did an $18 office makeover.
But time and wear has occurred...
the paint on the desktop has not worn well.
The satin chair fabric needs replacing.
And then the wine accident happened!
One evening I went to my little office with my very large glass of red to sit and check emails, 
and peruse other wonderful blogs when....
You guessed it -
I dropped the glass of red.

I discovered quite a few things in the moments following...

#one should never attempt to catch the dropped glass of wine.

#red wine hurts if you get it in your eye.

#your grey hair turns a pretty (but winery smelling) shade of burgundy.

#the law of gravity does not apply to red wine spillage - as it went up, down and sideways!

#red wine stains wallpaper painted walls.


Now it was definitely time to make over the office again.
This time round the makeover was based on a beautiful photographic print from Baz Mantis.
(yes - ironic I know that it is red!)
To see the story about this print visit HERE.

This is what happened next:
The yellow colour way in the office was removed...
#walls were touched up and repainted in Dulux 'Celery' (satin). 

#desktop was repainted in 'Paris Grey' chalk paint.

#the office chair was recovered in gorgeous new fabric.
(You will find the red rose screensaver for your computer HERE.)


#an old bright blue pinboard was painted black.


#'On A Wire' hanging frames were created.
Find out how to make them HERE.

#the old stool was painted with Paris Grey chalk paint and rattan sprayed with acrylic white.
The cushion was covered in the same fabric as the office chair.

Totally refreshed 
- and completely popping with black and hints of red.
My little home office is a joy to work in.
Love, Love, Love!
