Final Reveal of My Whimsical Home Office Ideas!

I guarantee you've never seen DIY home office ideas like this! Transform your space into a whimsical place to be and your work vibe will never be the same!

I spend a lot of time in my home office. When we moved into this, our first purchased home, I quickly commandeered the room that had built in bookshelves and cupboards for my office. I created a “secret” board on Pinterest title My Office and during the next year or so  I gathered home office ideas I liked and stuck them in there. I really needed the room to be off the charts special… or maybe unique would be a better word. It had to be a place that was a joy for me to walk into and one that didn’t cost me a fortune to create.

Finally, in January 2016, I had a general idea of what I wanted and month after month I’d do a post on something I did to my room… replacing the floor, organizing, building the wall desk etc. My daughter Jennifer helped quite a bit with the decorating. I just took it slow and easy and the finishing touch was done in July 2017. So it was a year and a half in the making. But I ended up with exactly what a wanted. A fun, whimsical room that makes me smile every time I walk into it.

    Wow! What a gorgeous and inspirational office.
    When I finally move into my Forever On This Planet Home
    I shall use some of these ideas for my craft studio.
    Know idea how long it will be, but believing it will happen.

    Please don’t publish this bit Nancy, I have felt strongly for some
    time that I would like to make you a small dragon for your home.
    If that would be ok please let me know.
    If you’d prefer I didn’t, that’s fine I shall continue to follow your blog,
    send occasional e-mail cards and think well of you all.
    Lucy
