Ok so you’ve seen bits and pieces of my new-to-me office space but I thought it would be nice to get the whole room in one place. 🙂 This space was done on a very small budget but I don’t think you can tell…at least I hope you can’t.
It took me a few weeks to find two desks with similar lines at the thrift store, but considering that I didn’t have much to spend, it was worth spending some time looking.
If you missed the desk makeovers, you can check them out HERE.
The chairs were another great find. I had planned on using some random chairs that I already had, but these $5.99 desk chairs changed my mind.
You can find the full chair tutorial, HERE.
A few things made it from my original office space…like this rolling cart and my mirrored door cabinet.
Here’s the second desk that houses our family computer…
I did a little rearranging in the living room and stole the chair and rug for this space.
The artwork was less than $20, because I used things I already had or found inexpensive alternatives…like my gift bag artwork.
Here are a few before and after pictures. (The before is extra dramatic because we had already taken all the bookcases out of the room and it was a mess. 😉 )
Budget Friendly Office Makeover Expense Breakdown:
2 thrift store desks and spray paint: $50
2 thrift store chairs plus fabric and spray paint: $35
Ikea lighting: $40
Gallon of Paint (Valspar’s Sea Port): $36
Cabinet, Chair, Garden Table, Rolling Cart: already owned
It feels good to check off one project. Now I can focus on my shower remodel!

Fabulous. I love the makeover on the desks and chairs, so fun. You’ve created a fabulous office space.
Thanks, Marty! It makes it a lot easier to work in a pretty space. 🙂
Well done, Angela! It’s an beautiful, elegant space! (And I especially love your gold desk and chair!)
Love your space…where did you get your curtains? Love them with the paint color!
Lori, I found them at HomeGoods for $30 for the pair! 🙂
Where did you buy the chair that you already owned? Love it.
I got it at HomeGoods last year, but I have seen similar ones there recently.
