Julia and I have been hard at work making over a room in our parent's home. Now that us kids are grown, our childhood rooms are being used for other purposes. For this project we transformed our brother's childhood room into our parent's home office!
The inspiration for this room came from Royal Design Studio's Elsabet Stencil. A large graphic design like this can completely change the look and feel of a space on a small budget. Large stencils like these range in price from $30 - $60. We chose to stencil the wall you see when you walk into the office, directly across from the door, to create the largest impact.
Another show stopper piece in this room is the built in bookcases. Julia and I have really been wanting to DIY a project like this. We researched many plans from Ana White to Sawdust Girl, but in the end we developed our own plans inspired by the compilation of different pieces. We decided to have one large hanging book shelf suspended from the ceiling and above the desktop work surface by 2 ft.
We are planning to decorate and accessorize the room with items our parents already have but we'll still need to purchase a few things to tie everything together. Here are some of the products we used for the makeover.
