My office inspiration from Emily A Clark - Planning to use the same IKEA bookshelf and similar paint, but mine will be a few shades darker and blue blue than purple.
I'll admit it, I spend a lot of time reading design blogs and dreaming of projects I want to do around my house. While I'm home this fall and have a bit of time off I'm planning to tackle one of those projects - my home office. It's a large airy room, with big windows that is perfect for an office. Best of all moving out there will get me away from the kitchen table which is much too close to the pantry and fridge for my waistline. I anticipate working from home more during the next year so I want to get the office ready as quickly as possible and I'm planning to share my progress with you as I go.
I have decided on a color to paint the walls and on the type of flooring to install, but I'm still working on all the little details which, let's be honest, is what will really make the place my own. I'm trying to keep the budget down, so there will be lots of bargain shopping, DYI and re-purposing for the project. I almost wish I was eligible for the surprise I have for you today, my very first giveaway.
The kind folks at CSN Stores have given me a $35 gift certificate to give away to one of you! CSN is an online shopping mecca with over 200 stores where you can buy anything from dining room chairs, to rugs (I need some for my office), to lighting right down to storage solutions for media collections (another thing I really need!)
All you have to do to win is comment on this post telling me what home project you plan to tackle next. For a bonus entry become a follower and add a second comment letting me know you've done so. Already a follower? Simply add a second comment letting me know you are.
There has never been a better time for all of you lurkers out there to come out of the word work and show me a little comment love. The contest closes at mid-night Sunday, October 31. I'll use random.org to pick the winner and will make the announcement on November 2.
The small print
