Office Makeover Part One

om

In preparation for the new school year, I want to have a fresh and inviting office.  I wish I had a picture I could share of the current office, but I don’t…..needless to say it needs some sprucing up.  I have a list of projects that I want to get done, but right now, I will just share “part one” of my office makeover.  I’m on a budget, so I’m trying to use mostly items I have and then give them a little face lift!

Loveseat

I had an old loveseat that had some pretty ugly fabric on it, so I went to Walmart and bought something fresh that I liked.  Instead of sewing the cushion covers, I used a hot glue gun and pins.  I just wrapped  the cushion like a present.  It worked out perfectly and took such little time to complete.

Bulletin Boards

Next, I had a lot of old bulletin boards that I wanted to used.  I plan on putting information in the pockets of some of the boards and student artwork or inspirational quotes on the other boards.  I got some coordinating fabric and covered each board with the hot glue gun again.

I’m hoping to find some little buckets to hang from the hooks on the bottom to fill with pens, pencils, crayons, etc.

Coffee Table

What I am the most excited about is this incredible coffee table which was headed to goodwill.  Now it will go in front of the loveseat.  I wish I could take credit for it, but my dad put in all the labor of sanding, priming, and painting.  It turned out fabulous!  It has a chalkboard top, so students can write or draw on it.  I absolutely love it!  I wish I had a before picture, but I just have after pictures.

moThat’s all the projects for now, but more to come!!
