From Drab to Fab – Office Makeover

I am so excited to finally share this post with all of you! I’ve been wanting to share our my office/prop room for quite some time now. This is the room I spend way too many hours and late nights in, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. This is where my creativity and imagination is on fire. I have come up with some delicious recipes in here and have thought of some great ideas I can’t wait to bring to life.

I’ve always been a hoarder when it comes to kitchen items like pots, pans, bowls, baking sheets, cupcake pans, etc. just ask my husband. He’s always telling me it’s not normal, but I can’t help it. I have a slight obsession with Homegoods, Ikea, Target, and Wegman’s; they always have something different that catches my eye when I go shopping. Some of my favorite emails and comments are questions about where a serving dish, or a plate I used to display cookies in one of my photos is from. I’m glad I get to share my love for plates, bowls and unique serving utensils with other people 😉 My husband may call the people that send me these emails enablers, but I call them my best friends!!

This Drab to Fab post is about how I turned a plain room filled with things we didn’t know what to do with when we moved in into a chic and organized office space. You don’t need expensive furniture to make a room in your house look nice, you just need to know how to turn an inexpensive piece of furniture into looking like a million bucks. I like to do that by styling the shelves with all of my favorite things!
