My Office: The Before Shot (Goodbye Magnolia)

So this is a last look at my office before I decorate it. I’ve been waiting to get my hands on this room since we moved in. For someone who works from home, having an inspiring office is something that’s really important to me. And it really isn’t at the moment!

My Office Before - The Before Shot

It’s a good size room but I haven’t been able to utilise it to it’s full potential because of my current furniture. As the case is with most new home owners in their twenties, our furniture is all second hand and used for function, not fashion.

The desk was given to me by my dad last year when he got a new one and because my current desk was far too small. I’m now looking to get a corner desk as my desktop screen is far too close to my face! Not good for the eyes.

The bookcase and other desk were bought as furniture for my Affleck’s shop a few years ago and the plastic drawers were bought for one of my student flats so though they all served a purpose at the time – they just don’t meet my needs these days. Plus, they’re not exactly easy on the eye!

As you can see, I’ve got a lot of books, DVDs and paperwork so I need to get a substantial bookcase. I’ve got one picked out so hopefully it will be collected this week.

My biggest annoyance with this room is the wall sticker. I usually like inspirational quotes but I find having this on the wall super cheesy. Unfortunately when I tried to take it off when we first moved in, it started to take away the paint underneath. So begrudgingly I decided to wait until I decorated to remove it.

Plus as you may be able to see in the above photo – the room is really badly painted. The dirty cream colour has been splashed onto the ceiling in numerous places and you can see the paint brush marks particularly bad in the top corners of the room.

So my paint has been purchased and decorating will commence this week! I can’t wait to see what it looks like at the end.
