Our DIY home office is finished! We did everything in this room ourselves, from the hardwood floors, to the built-in desk and bookshelves to the crown molding. The built-ins are definitely my favorite part of this room... they were a labor of love!
The free-standing desk was a $100 craigslist find that I madeover with homemade chalk paint, using regular paint and plaster of paris.
Most of the decor items are from HomeGoods or Joss & Main. Do you know about Joss & Main? If not, google it... I'm obessed!
My dad and I made this built-in desk and bookshelves ourselves! The base was made from unfinished cabinets from Lowe's, the desktop was made from from scratch from unfinished select pine boards, and the bookshelves were made from scratch too! I also made the fabric-covered nailhead trim corkboard in the middle from scratch too using plywood and cork tiles from Staples. That tutorial is covered in another one of my posts... check it out!!
The built-in desk and bookshelves were a little tricky because the one corner is at a weird angle. We wound up cutting the bottom cabinet in half diagonally to make it fit.
