Fall 2018 One Room Challenge Week 5: Home Office Redesign

By Susan Young | Decorating on a Budget

One Room Challenge Week 5 of the Fall 2018 series, sponsored by Better Homes and Gardens, is over. I'm in such a frazze to redecorate my home office that I've run out of time. This week was full of dance practices and volunteer commitments and birthday parties, leaving little time to focus on the room.

The Office Furniture Arrived!

I did manage to order my furniture for the room (well, most of it) and it arrived this week. I got the desk and buffet for my TV area, as well as a rug and some lamps from Wayfair and from Overstock. I also scored and found a Flexsteel table for my printer at my local Habitat Restore for $16! Half of the furniture is still in pieces in my living room and the rest is in my office. Why oh why didn't I pay the extra for the "expert assembly?"

The Layout for my Home Office

Just a reminder, here is the space plan that I worked out from last week:.

Not sure if you can tell where all of my furniture will go, but this is the basic layout, which I'll explain in a bit. Some of the measurements are a little off, but it's close to what I will have.

My Final Home Office Design Board

I am so excited to show you my final design board. Here it is! I will wait until next week to reveal the final room:

I can't wait to show you my final room!
