Navy and Grey Office Makeover Reveal

Usually I have several months or weeks to plan and complete a room makeover. For my mom’s office makeover I only had about 2 weeks due to our move back to Charleston! Despite the limited time frame, I was able to squeeze in several easy but high impact DIY projects. I love how this pretty, navy and grey office makeover turned out!

Wow what a difference right?! I think the biggest and easiest DIY transformation for this space was a fresh coat of paint. Brandon helped me to knock this part out in one weekend. We used Dolphin Fin by Behr in eggshell.

The next easy and budget friendly transformation I did was reusing the desk and one of the chairs in the space by painting them, adding new hardware (for the desk) and new fabric (for the chair). I talked about the details of the painted desk makeover here. And here is a before and after photo of the chair:

Also, I’m obsessed with the cream and navy rug I used to cover up the outdated white carpet. It really helped to bring the space together. The rug was really affordable too!

My favorite DIY project for this space is the IKEA Billy bookcase hack with shiplap! It turned out great and adds a wow factor to the room along with lots of extra storage.

On the bookcase, I added these cute DIY magazine holders. I’m planning to do a tutorial post on them soon!

Since I didn’t have much time for this home office makeover I was unable to add any wall art. Instead I added my “Create the things you wish existed” calligraphy printable in a cute, wood picture frame. You can get the free printable in the library of free printables!

Finally, I finished the space off with brass hardware decor, like the the curtain rod and desk lamp, and lots of natural texture decor items, including the bamboo blinds, wicker basket, linen like curtains, greenery and roses.

  1. Your details and outcome are excellent and beautiful. I am inspired to tackle my tiny den/lounge/library now. I really appreciate the links, additional tutorials, and paint color, brand and sheen information. I wish others with diy blogs were as meticulous. I love the clean look and how the furniture is a combination of styles. Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. Very inspiring before and after Angela Marie! I am trying to do something similar with a spare room I have. I’m trying to create a functional and stylish home office and your impressive make-over made my jaw drop. I love how the white paint totally transformed the desk and your choice of colors and design brought it all together into a harmonious and unified room. Thank you!

  3. Beautiful! How did you plug in the lamp and the laptop? I don’t see the cords but I know they must be there. How did you hide them.

    1. Thank you! We used cable cord clip holders from Amazon and ran the cord down the leg for the lamp and cut a small slit through the carpet to run it through. For the laptop, we just plug it in and remove it as needed. You could also stick a power strip under the desk with command strips and have multiple things plugged into that and hidden.

  4. What size rug did you purchase? I turning one of our rooms into an office but I’m not sure about rug size! This make over looks great!!
