OFFICE DESIGN

Okay so it's reveal day here for the One Room Challenge.  I listened to your sweet encouragement and painted the built-in bookshelves glossy black and gave the desk some nice coral action.
But I'm actually en route to Pawleys Island so I'm apologize for the picture overload.  I was too tired while typing this up to choose my favorite angle.  Today is just the pictures but I'll be back next week with a details post and source information so feel free to ask any questions in the comments section and I'll try to get them answered.  I've already gotten two requests for a painted desk tutorial.  That will come lovelies.  Be patient.  Good things take time.  Don't fool yourselves, spray paint was not used in the completion of this project.  Nothing short of hard work and paint rollers.  
 But enough already.  
Here she be.

BAM!

 
 Feel free to start at the beginning of the One Room Challenge here.


Now get your butts over to the other ladies to see their big reveals too!

  26. First... I'm obsessed! LOVE it all! Second, i just got back from 2.5 weeks at Pawleys where our family has a house (right in the middle of the island - The Anchors-) and I'm super jealous you are headed there. I'll be back in a couple weeks. I'm sure you go to Currents, the furniture store off the island... they were AMAZING as usual!
