Hi and welcome back! Do you ever feel like, I am going to get XY AND Z done this week. Then you try and you work, but one thing after another happens and then you realize you didn’t get X, Y OR Z done? Well, that’s pretty much how it’s going with my home office makeover. But, I’m getting a few things done and it’s staring to move along.

UPDATE – SEE THE FULL REVEAL POST HERE
One of the things that held me up was the ridiculous amount of rain we have had. Plus, with the pool remodel, they have had to drain out all the rain water, so our yard looks like this.
I have to wear my rain boots out there, otherwise my feet get soaked!
Also, since we ripped the deck out, you can see more about that HERE, the step going up to the pool house had to be ripped out, so getting in and out of the office is fun. Why am I doing this all at the same time? I had a reason-can’t think of it now.
But, even with al that I did get some stuff done. First, I picked paint colors, and after being inspired by my friends, I decided navy would be a good choice for a home office. Here is a post I wrote about the colors that inspired me. These are some gorgeous rooms from my friends.
I decided on Naval by Sherwin Williams. I only decided on that because two of the bloggers in that post used it and I figured if two people of out six used it and like it, it would work! Plus, I had a lot of white trim leftover, so when I put them together they looked like a match. I bought it but haven’t gotten on the prep work to start painting done yet. I love, love, love when you roll on the first coat of paint, but the prep work, especially in a room like this can be daunting.
I did start some paint work though – the cabinets are painted!
And if you are wondering if that is concrete on the countertop, backsplash and wall, you are right! Haha, I’ll have more on that ridiculous idea soon, but it does give the room a nice, stone wall that cost next to nothing. I’ll have the navy and white everywhere else.
I also started a bit on scrubbing the walls, since this is basically an outdoor space that has been abandoned, it has been quite a bit more cleanup than I suspected :(. Lots of wasps nests and June bugs everywhere. Just today, I also started working on the popcorn ceiling removable.
I also did some shopping. I bought some new lights at Lowes and got these pulls off Amazon is two different sizes.
I also (maybe) picked out the floor tile and borrow a wet saw and some other supplies from some a friend so we can attempt the floor ourselves. We will see how it goes ;).
So, that’s it for this week on our home office makeover. Not a lot of fun stuff to look at, mainly just a bunch of cleaning. Hopefully more next week.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
