One Office Two Ways

Changing your office decor is easier than you would think. If you’ve invested in quality neutral furniture, a simple change in artwork and accessories can give your office a completely different look.

This home office was redecorated without even moving the furniture. I think you’ll agree, it looks completely different.

I changed out the accessories and recovered the chair (something that is easy to do if you have an office chair with cushions that unbolt from the frame).

I started with the pink office, shown in the image above, and ended up with this: blog-image_black-officeSomething a little more gender neutral.


Here is what I spent:

Just for reference the pink office cost about $400. I realize this is not an insignificant amount of money, but when you consider that it looks like a new room, it doesn’t seem so bad.

    Love the boldness of both of these looks, but I disagree $520 is a nice chunk of cash and while both of these looks are great, they’re not that different from each other. For such a large investment I’d want a more marked difference.

    I like both – great example of how small changes can make a big difference! May I ask about your office desk – can you provide details on where you purchased it and the name of it? I have been looking for the same type of desk. Any details you can provide are truly appreciated! -D

      It’s a vintage metal office desk. You can get them refurbished from Twenty Gauge, but they can be a little pricey. If you live near a big city chances are good that you can find a used office furniture store there. When there are military base closings a lot of these old metal desks come into circulation. Let me know if you find one!

      I just posted how to make the magnet boards with the days. Just buy the plain circle or square magnet boards on the See Jane Work website then add vinyl letters from the home store.
