Now that spring has arrived, I decided it was time for an office/jewelry studio refresh. It was time to re-organize and purge and I have to admitted, I never thought purging items could be so therapeutic. The biggest project of them all was re-designing a gem of an armoire which my fellow Thrift Wives found for me at Goodwill. Furniture makeovers can be a bit tricky, especially when it comes to painting. There’s always the fear of “will this turn out right?” The great thing about DIYs is you can always start again.
I’m not going to lie, painting this was a task and moving it upstairs to my office was a behemoth of a task. Tinkering with the idea of painting it a really funky color, I settled on the color black and painted the knobs gold. I figured simple is best since I don’t plan on moving from its current spot. The biggest need that I have when it comes to creating jewelry is I need space to spread my items out, but also be able to hide the mess so that I can function effectively when I’m not creating. What I love most about the armoire is that it has doors that I can just close up when I’m done, and then go back to working when I need to.
Those memory and photo boxes are also a great way to organize my tools, supplies and other office items. Those wonderful magazine holders are also organization life savers, not to mention they are budget friendly. I re-used and re-purposed a lot of items I already had, just so I did not have to spend a lot refreshing the look and feel.
Now let’s talk about accessorizing, every office needs pretty things to look at. I made what I like to call a “pretty wall.” I plan on adding an accent little chair and my “pretty wall” will be the background for all my DIY videos that I plan on creating.
I even made use of empty spaghetti glass jars and coffee tin cans, just added a little spray paint and boom they become pretty storage items.
