Home Office Makeover

Making over the office was something that got bumped up on the priority when I was given the opportunity to work at home (YAY!). We also decided to go back to school so we wanted to have a space specifically for homework... Our "office" somehow turned into our "don't know where to put it/catch all room" so we had to do a little re-organization in the process. Here is the after:

I love accent walls and I found this dark teal color that looked awesome but since it is a smaller room we wanted to do white furniture to brighten up the room a little bit and add some more contrast. We went to IKEA to look for storage ideas (since our house lacks storage) and ended up with a large white bookcase. 

The hubbs built a custom desk/table so that we could actually remove part of the desk and put the extra leg in to hold up the 4th corner that isn't attached to the wall. We wanted to be able to remove the part that sticks out so when we have guests we can put another bed in that area and still have room to move around. He also custom made the color to match the bookcase from IKEA because it wasn't the same white, so the desk and cube organizer (from Target) are the same white as the bookcase! 

The before:
