Building a Pottery Barn Inspired Home Office


A year ago I converted my son's old bedroom into a home office. It's become a haven, a place where I blog full time, sew, craft and relax. The office took a little over a year to really complete. I tend to be a slow decorator, only buying pieces I really love for a space. Check out the full transformation from Bedroom to Home Office in this post at Between Naps on the Porch: http://bit.ly/QGdez6
My son had flown the nest...all grown up now. Still don't know how that happened!  It was hard taking this room apart but I was really excited about building a space to work and play.

There's a reading corner with an English-cottage chair and a small library down one wall.  The office closet got a makeover with an IKEA Expedit.  Great storage!

    Removal and moving companies would always hear DIY stories of this kind – converting a spare bedroom of a son or daughter who has moved out into something more useful – an activity room or just a sitting area. It would sometimes take a while for them to re-do the space, but after a while the space would look like how it was planned for.
