The BIG DAY is here! I finally have this whole beautiful room put together and I am so excited to bombard you with photos I took of it. The office makeover for the One Room Challenge has been a fun ride and I love the results. To refresh your memory, this is where the room started.

And here’s the to-do list I completed for the office makeover.

  • Paint walls gray & trim white
  • Build industrial shelving with IKEA hyllis hack
  • Paint abstract piece of artwork
  • Paint frame of hexagon mirror white
  • Make DIY lamp shade chandelier
  • Hang cream curtains
  • Decorate space using copper accents and multiple textures

After all that, here is what the space looks like now:

This space was such a joy to design and decorate from a blank slate. Everything came together so beautifully thanks to the mood board I put together the first week.

I’d say it definitely has the same feel! Let’s dive deeper into each of the DIY projects I completed for this room.

My favorite copper colored spray paint allowed me to create matching decor pieces for the office makeover ORC

Copper Décor Accents

So first off, since I couldn’t find many cost-effective options for copper décor, I ended up buying a can of spray paint and making my own! I would only trust Rust-Oleum to deliver the best copper color. I love the warmth of this metallic and for the cost of a $4 can, you can’t beat it! The only place I didn’t use the spray paint was on my DIY abstract art painting.

Abstract Artwork

For this copper, I used these amazing metallic paints I got on Amazon. They can be used for so many projects, on fabric, wood, glass, anything! I am going to use them for a Christmas sweater pillow in the near future and am so excited. Anyway, click to watch the video tutorial for how to paint something like this for your home.

Industrial modern shelving build

Modern Industrial Shelving

Of course, the modern industrial shelving completely steals the show in my office makeover reveal. Everyone who has seen it in person says it looks even better than they imagined. These shelves are strong and beautiful, you would never guess I only spent $60 to create them with Rust-Oleum spray paints and an IKEA hack!

Window Pane Wall Décor

You can see that the office is the home of my window pane sign I made recently on Hometalk Live. The shortened video tutorial went totally viral with 20 MILLION views and I’m so in shock you guys. Thanks to everyone who watched it! I hope I inspired you and you like the home I found for my window pane.

Hexagon Mirror

I also painted the hexagon mirror with Rust-Oleum gloss white 2X cover spray paint. This mirror was purchased at a thrift store on sale for $7! It was forest green and looked outdated. I loved the geometric lines and gave it a fresh, modern look.

Lamp Shade Drum Chandelier

Last but not least, my DIY drum chandelier looks beautiful cascading down over the desk which sits in the center of the room. I would have never thought to arrange a desk floating in the middle of a room two years ago. I’ve come a long way my friends. I also have a long way to go. Ha!

Now I thought it would be fun to list out what I put together to make this office makeover happen and how much it cost. I am very frugal and I think you will see that in the results.

  • Paint for the walls = $0 (free at the local Household Hazardous Waste Facility)
  • Industrial Shelving Build = $60 Ikea Hyllis hack
  • White Desk = $0 (given to us by my husband’s work’s furniture liquidation sale)
  • Drum chandelier = $6
  • Cream Curtains = $20 Ikea Lenda on sale
  • Hexagon Mirror = $7 thrift store find
  • Geometric Vases = $4 online marketplace find
  • Copper & Marble Desk Lamp = $15 online marketplace find
  • Copper baskets = $3 online marketplace find (these last three items were all from the same lady, who had great taste I might add).
  • Faux fur rug = $12 Hobby Lobby on sale
  • File organizer = $15 Target
  • Faux greenery = $3 thrift store finds
  • White flower pot = $2 thrift store find
  • Metallic paints for Décor & Art = $17

    Looks great 🙂 One question, did you do something to the back of your monitor? It looks metallic-y too.

      Thanks Lisa! No, I think it’s just reflecting light. It does look kind of metallic though, doesn’t it?!
