When we decided to go with an ‘Elegant Farmhouse’ style in our office we knew we’d be stretching our creative muscles. Our new office space is located in the heart of my new home. So we wanted it to flow with the entire style of the house, while also having its own personality.
Here is what we came up with.
Joanna (our content coordinator) found this dresser in her grandmothers storage. It took a bit of reassembling but it went back together beautifully.
She used linen while chalked paint by Rustoleum on the entire piece, to cover and seal the original lead paint. Then Joanna took the original antique hardware and spray painted them with gold spray paint to give it an elegant look. She also used the gold spray paint on the office trash can that sits beside it.
Antique Plate Collage Wall
This was the last project in this room. Once it was finally up we realized how much we needed it to pull this room off. Since I am in the middle of moving most of my belongings are in boxes. So in order to pull this off we had to open every single box that we could get to. We couldn’t find all of my antique plates but these guys will have to do.
I’m sure someone with a particular eye for these type of collages just fainted in horror. But personally we like how it turned out.
First, we laid out the collage on the floor. Then Joanna traced each plate onto wrapping paper and labeled them. Next, we tapped the paper plate cut outs onto the wall where we wanted them. This gave us the ability to play around and fix the spacing without messing up the wall. Finally, we hung each plate one by one with plate hangers.
Chalked Painted Farmhouse Table
Joanna picked this table up off of a facebook buy-sell-trade. It was originally dark wood and the bench was covered in leather. To make it flow with our elegant farmhouse style we decided to paint it white with the linen white Rustoleum chalked paint as well.
So that’s our new office space guys! We are so excited about this new space to create and hopefully get more content out to you soon. By request from basically everyone I talk to, we will be starting videos to go along with our blog posts in the up coming months!
Thank-you so much for taking time out of your day to hang out here.
