// Office Space: Makeover Sneak Peek

Workspace makeover glitter geometric wall DIY
Huzzah! Our office makeover is well on it's way and we couldn't be more excited! Here's a little sneak peek at what we've been up to... a GEOMETRIC WALL! WITH GLITTER! Originally we started with just metallic gold paint but they fell flat and just looked brown since they weren't constantly lit up. Mike thought I was totally bonkers when I suggested we do glitter on top of the gold. He kept shaking his head and I'd just murmur "Watch me... I'm going to have a glitter wall." Once we were done with the base paint I set out on my mission... and it worked! I was pretty shocked at how easy it was honestly. Mike was pleasantly surprised, too. 

I know what you're thinking... "That doesn't look like an office for a man..." but whatever. Mike was stoked on my idea of the geometric wall (inspired by this painting that I've had in my favorites for like ever!) and he was totally game for the color palette I picked out. I'm letting him nerd out and build most of the furniture (two tables for the wall behind us, and his desk, for starters) so it's been a fun collaboration. I think he's just so stoked to have all of those clothes tossed out of the room that he doesn't care much. Anything was better than that!

You'll have to excuse the wonky color/lighting in photos 2 and 3b. We changed the bulbs in our light from incandescent to "natural"CFL bulbs mid-makeover. Things photograph so well in our office now that we've changed the bulbs. It "feels" a little blue since all of our other lights are yellow/incandescent, but we're considering swapping them all out to match. The colors in 5a (the last photo) are true to life, and they're gorgeous! Seriously, I never thought I could be so inspired by an ombre, geometric, glitter wall (say that five times fast!) but I am. I just want to sit in our office and make magic happen!

We have a lot of work left to do though. Today we're attaching all of our cubby shelves and adding backs to them (which we're going to paint a contrasting color) and putting together a new bookshelf. Not to mention painting Mike's new desk and starting to build the two tables. My desk was the first to get set up since I have several design projects to work on, and even in it's current half-renovated state, I'm feeling super motivated. Just knowing what it looked like before is insane! Having all of those clothes gone seriously feels like a weight lifted off of my shoulders. Here's to hoping we don't clutter this place up!

If you're a fan of the geometric/glitter wall, pop back by tomorrow and I'll show you exactly how we made it happen! (Real talk: our statement wall cost us around $15!) Is it totally looney that I never want to live anywhere without a geometric/glitter wall now?! I'm hooked!

  4. It looks amazing and that gold glitter just completes that whole wall! I'm a sucker for anything glitter so I may convince the boy to do something that like. I can't wait to see the rest of the office when everything's done!

  13. I super look forward to learning about this glitter wall. I am moving in with my boyfriend in the coming year and I know our decor will lean more "masculine" than "feminine" but I think if I did a similar geometric wall in dark greens and light greys, and blues, with a gold or silver glitter accent it could serve both of our sensibilities!! This is GREAT!

  18. This wall is gorgeous! I love the glitter, it makes it such a fun space. Also, the tips on which types of lights photograph well are really helpful. I often have to photograph things without natural daylight and trying to find good lightbulbs is such a pain xx
