OFFICE UPDATE

The office is coming together...


1.  I made a pelmet box out of the leftover blue velvet fabric I used for the lucite chairs(using pine board from home depot as the base).

2.  I purchased a persian rug on Ebay from this seller.
(Love!)

3.  I scored two great lamps over the weekend.
First is this pineapple lamp...
(I'm moving it to my side of the desk)

and second is this black and gold deco lamp...


4.  Since this room doesn't get a ton of natural light, I decided on a mirror top for the credenza...



5.  And I hung 3 Ekby shelves from Ikea for Mark's hats...


Now I just need to..
hang the lucite chandelier
repaint the desk
find a shade for the deco lamp
accesorize


What do you think so far?
Mark is pretty happy so I'm happy!

The office looks great! I love the lamps that you scored and the mirror top for the credenza is genius :) Thank you for linking to the seller of your rug - I'm thinking I might want to buy one from them. Can't wait to see the space completed cause it already looks great!

Of course, you should both be thrilled. It looks amazing already, Charmaine! I'm in love with that black lamp and that rug. And for some reason, the statue with the stethoscope covering the naughty bits made me giggle (I'm so immature).

It's fantastic. No more "girly" all boy for sure. I like the way you displayed the hats. We have a collection of those over here, too.

Looks great! Such a cozy space! Is that the same blue velvet I won in your giveaway? :) I'm saving mine for that special piece I find that I just have to re-upholster!

It is looking fantastic Charmaine! Mark is going to love his own decorated space! That red credenza is the focal point, and love the mirrored top. Can't wait to see the chandelier installed.
