My Pretty Workspace: All Things Pretty Office Makeover

After a long wait, my beautiful workspace is complete. After learning that baby #2 was another boy, I needed a girly place just for me. With a lot of help from my husband, I was able to achieve my *dream* workspace. Now, I didn’t think to take a lot of “before” pictures, but hopefully by looking at these, you’ll get the idea.

Office Before Picture

Definitely not the prettiest office you’ve ever seen. It was WAY too dark and masculine. It definitely needed a girly touch!

Now let me introduce you to my (VERY) Happy Place!

Girly Office Makeover

I traded in my old, black bulky desk for the open IKEA Liatorp desk and two Hemnes bookcases. 


I got the matching Hemnes side table from IKEA. I moved the black hanging shelf to our living room and bought a white one to match the decor. These shelves are great!


Naturally, the decor is all favorite items from my shop! You can find these items here, here and here! The animals are from Hobby Lobby and I spray painted them gold. Easy DIY!


This gorgeous tassel garland is from the one and only Studio Mucci!

I also got the matching Hemnes side table from IKEA. The lamp can be found here and here and the Jonathan Adler stacking dish here.

I am SO completely happy with my new space! Walking in just brightens my day. It was also a lot of fun pulling it all together and finding all the perfect items to complete it.
