Home Office, Re-DONE!

This is it.......THE LAST ROOM IN MY HOUSE!!!



We added trim work (no surprise, I have an addiction- I know), 

bought this steal of a deal hutch from Restoration Hardware, I painted the desk, added a cool light..... and it's done!

Faux Brass Top Desk - I had heard of "Zinc topped tables" and figured the same effect would work for a Brass top.  To get a real brass metal table topper was possible- but very expensive, so I decided to see if I could fake it with paint!  I kinda followed this tutorial and just used a gold metallic paint to start with instead of silver.  I used some black paint and some brown stain to give it the "aged" look.

I painted the desk legs grey (Annie Sloan's French Linen)

The curtains are from Ikea but I added the little cross detail with a sharpie!  
I used a stencil as my guide and it was pretty darn easy.

The round stools under the desk were from Target just a few months ago- but it looks like they are no longer available (anywhere!)
The Book Case is actually a "hutch" from Restoration Hardware, we went with the 103" high one in "Antique Grey Oak" (for some reason this is cheaper than the 91" high one!  Regularly $4000, on Final Sale for $1500!!!)
 Light is the 18" double pendant from Restoration Hardware
The Picture light is also from Restoration Hardware
The majority of the items on the book shelves are from Target.  Some exceptions are the trophies, the brass metal basket, and the white wood box with handles, those are from Home Goods.  The large golf ball was a thrift store find.  The little white and brass Candle sticks are from World Market.

Master Bedroom Re- DONE!

Usually you start a room by painting, paneling, or wallpapering the walls.  Then you add in your decor.  In my master bedroom..... I did everything backwards.  I knew I wanted to add trim work, built-ins, and wallpaper and because that meant a whole lot of work (and money), it was something I had to put off for quite a while.  In the meantime I decorated the room with different pieces.  Finally (almost 7 years after moving into our home) the walls are done!!!!!  It was worth the wait, I think!



Progress Photos-
(built-ins went up and around the door into the master bathroom, the columns were wrapped in trim, and we added a larger baseboard and crown molding)

The trim work and built-in's were done by Lee Hyland (801-815-1862  He is in the Salt Lake area)
I Highly Recommend him!

This is the wallpaper I ordered.  I ordered and had it hung by "Details by Others" in Salt Lake.  I love the color.  It's called "off-white" which makes it sound like it's not even a color (and I was worried it wouldn't look too different from bare white walls!) but it has plenty of color and texture to give a big impact without overtaking a room.  It still feels light, airy, and neutral.

Shelf Decor:
I ordered the two temple architecture pictures off of Etsy.
"As for me and my house" scripture print,  the gold frame is from Target.
Brass Planters, Fern plantsCircle Candle holder,
Twiggy Pillar Candles, small white vase, and architectural corbel from "To Market" in Kaysville
Wood "M" from Home Goods, Wood carved Book ends from Tuesday Morning.

We are Loving It!
