My home office makeover


For months our office was used as storage but I envisioned a space where we could come, rest and be inspired. I needed a spot to house all my books and my husbands antique finds. I thought carefully about maximizing our room space, so we went with a floor to ceiling bookshelf that my husband built. I love the results.




Bookshelf- Built by Aniah's Window (World Market Knock-off)
Ladder- Built by Aniah's Window
Overhang lights- Ikea

I love the industrial feel this bookshelf has with its metal piping and file labels its the highlight of this room.
