My {OLD} Home Office & Dressing Room

my home office and dressing room - closet
* Welcome to my OLD home office where the …love Maegan magic happens *
* Find my New Home Office Posts Here

You’ve seen bits and pieces of it …you saw the decor details, you were there when I completely renovated my tall ikea dressers & DIY’d the black tassels to my silk curtains, when I organized my jewelry & accessories in the antique secretary desk, when I renovated my Grandma’s antique lamps and hung the wall hooks behind the door, when I DIY’d my inspiration cork tile wall, and when I finally cleaned & organized my closet.

But yes, I’ve dragged my feet on photographing and sharing my COMPLETE home office/dressing room with you because to me, it’s not finished yet …but I’ve been saying that for months now which leaves me with one conclusion: it will never be finished because I am a freak.

I’ve come to terms with it and decided to share …today.

So please enjoy my ultra-feminine home office and dressing room tour.

BUT FIRST: Remember what it looked like before, just thrown together…

Office Before - corner

And now…

Ikea expedit desk in home office with zebra rug and panton chair
How does it compare to when we first moved in & the inspiration post I created for it?

Product info: besides the few antiques, it’s almost completely Ikea!

* Ikea 6×6′ Expedit with attached desk …two cubby doors and three sets of cubby drawers

* White chair on opposite side of my desk is the Panton Chair from Design Within Reach

* Office chair is Aeron Chair which I’ve had for almost a decade now.

* Round zebra rug is by NuLoom and I got it at GILT. It was the very first thing I bought for this house.

* Three short Ikea dressers side by side were in our master bedroom in our old condo. We’ve had them for almost as long as we’ve been together.

* Two side narrow dressers were also from Ikea and were birch with ugly handles. I painted them and added the lion’s head pulls. We’ve also had these forever, one of each was in both of our closets at the old place.

* Pink crocodile studded ottoman {where I sit to put my shoes on} is actually from Lamps Plus, a random find for $75 when I bought the black lamp shades but it’s only $49 now!

* Bench/storage under the large window was actually free …drollgirl and I found a few behind the building of the gallery and we snatched them up …and by behind the building I mean, in the trash 😉

* White Silk curtains are from Bed Bath and Beyond {I added the tassels} and the Confetti System works as a window treatment for the smaller, higher window {and flutters in the breeze, which I just love}.

* This antique secretary desk was my Grandma’s and was hand-painted by my Grandpa in the 60’s. She always had it in her entryway with her checkbooks and pens but I actually keep all my jewelry & accessories in it …and much of it was hers.

While it may never be finished, I am truly in love with the space which I spend most of my time in. It’s a constant source of creativity and inspiration for me.

And just in case you couldn’t really get a feel for the space from the photos {it’s really difficult to photograph it well}, I made a little video tour for you as well. Enjoy.
