Entryway + Office Makeover

Entryway table + office space


Entryway + Office Makeover

We only have about 6 weeks left in our rental home, and leave it to me to wait till the last stretch to finally finish the entryway + office makeover. As you remember, we re-finished a flea market dresser, and I refinished this $3 desk to unify the two into one longer piece. We painted our walls grey, used a deep blue grey paint for the furniture, and gold finishes for the drawer pulls…

If I need time to unwind and de-stress, just ask me to style a shelf. It’s like a large scale puzzle for me to figure out, and I thoroughly enjoy the process! Instead of paying $30 for a small shelf, I found a good size board in Gabe’s wood stash and just picked up some bracket’s at Lowe’s, spray painted them gold, and $7 later had a better option for the wall space.  Here is the before pic of the dresser/work space! (I loved it white too.)

entryway + desk space



We keep the kids’ shoes, vinyl records, diapers, and mail in the entryway table drawers, which has been a saving grace to constant clutter by the front door. We will probably transport this set up to our next home. I’ve linked to where I found everything below, except all furniture pieces were flea market finds!

Now on to packing up the house for the next month. Send. Help.
