My Office Makeover!

I was going to save this for tomorrow, but I'm so excited that I have to share right now. I've spent the last few days overhauling my office. I was able to do it all - paint, hardware, new furniture, textiles and all - for under 180 dollars! 

BEFORE: Clean and organized, but a little utilitarian for my taste. And the previous owner's sunshine yellow color choice, while certainly nice, was not my thing.

AFTER: The new color is Moroccan Henna from Behr Paints. The curtains are the Suzani Print from World Market (my big splurge) and the new furniture is Craig's List.

BEFORE: The office was doubling as a nap station for the little girl I take care of during the day. I've relocated the crib to my master bedroom in preparation for our baby boy, due in July.

AFTER: Check out the groovy 70's pendant lamp left here by the previous owners. It's so ugly/wonderful that I had to use it.


I've tucked my sewing stuff into this little built-in desk nook.

The little sofa I found on Craig's List folds out into a cozy twin bed for guests.

So what do you think?
Anything I should add?
Anything that looks not quite right?
