$250 Budget Home Office Makeover with DIY Filing Cabinet Desk






When it comes to decorating your home, there are a lot of compromises to be made (and it’s more important to compromise and keep family relationships than to have a magazine-perfect home!) But… it’s also really fun to have a space that can fully reflect just one personal style, like a craft room or office that’s all YOURS! Our guest today did a fun week-long $250 budget home office makeover for her husband’s office while he was out of town, turning a blank nook off the master bedroom into this comfortable functional space —Lovely small home office makeover, done from scratch with a $257 budget, in ONE week while her husband was out of town. Bravo!

$250 Budget Home Office Makeover
by Kristin from Postbox Designs

Hello Friends! This is Kristin from Postbox Designs, an interior designer/stay-at-home mama, who is always trying to find the right balance to both. My blog is meant to inspire you with real life projects, free design ideas, and let’s be honest, giving me the excuse to do some projects around my ever-changing home. This means I spend a LOT of time working after bedtime (possibly while eating dark chocolate and binge watching The Good Wife at the same time). Yep, hands down it’s the best job in the world!Small home office makeover with file cabinet desk. This office was decorated from scratch on a $250 budget!

I am also a firm believer that you can achieve beautiful design for ANY budget. Need to see it to believe it? Check out my Postbox Design Challenge using only items from Wal-Mart to design an entire living room. Not only would I totally put this in my house, it costs a mere $1265.02!

Or, what about a kitchen make-over with a budget? This is a high-low project: mostly budget items so you can splurge on a few choice goodies. Check out this beauty of a kitchen and breakfast nook (I’m totally going to steal some ideas for my own kitchen from it!). It features a navy and blinged-out gold DIY custom island tutorial.

Or do you just want to have some fun with math? What?! Why are we talking about MATH on a design blog? No, I’m not talking about helping your kiddo with their algebra homework. I am talking about the most fun kind of math there is: check out my weekly post, where I feature “Designer Math Mondays”. I show you how to add together a few objects to create a mini project in your home every week. Check out how to make a Mini Command Center here.

But today I’m going to feature a project from my own home. It is a home office make-over I created for $257. Yup, that will fit into most people’s budgets!

So it was mostly a present for my hubby. But a little bit of a present for me too.

When we moved into our house, The Husband immediately claimed the nook off our master bedroom as his home office. Which was fine by me. My only rule? Since I can see it from my bed, it had to look good. No mismatched, leftover office furniture. No golf trophies. We kissed on it, and the office was His.

But it took  one of his week-long business trips out of town to kick me into gear. I thought I could do a mini-makeover and surprise the guy when he got home. So for weeks before his departure I scanned Craigslist, stashed items in the back of our garage,  and mapped out my plan. Once he left on that jet plane I jumped into painting and staining. I’m an interior designer, so I always start with the infamous Mood Board.

DIY Project #1: The File Storage

The back storage area was inspired by the (very beautiful) Pottery Barn Bedford office collection, but that would have put me back several thousand dollars. Instead, I used four file cabinets and had a plywood top cut for it. (Do you know at Lowes and Home Depot they will cut down your wood for you? FOR FREE. This has saved my marriage. No more pleading for the hubby to  pull out his equipment Sunday evening when I have a project in mind).  Then to finish off the rough plywood edge, I added a small 1/2″ molding to the front. To turn it into a rich dark shade, I spent $5 in stain and about 20 minutes of my time. I used the Miniwax oil stain in “Ebony” from Home Depot.

Small home office makeover with file cabinet desk (2)

The file cabinets I scored from the sketchiest Craigslist location I’ve been to in my life. The seller ended up being a nice guy, but I had to dig through a small landfill in his backyard and grab these four cabinets. I peeled outta there pretty quickly after loading them up. Three were tan and one was black. But it was a pretty straightforward paint job. I used some leftover white paint from another project, and it took about three coats. I primed first, then used a small roller brush for a smooth finish.  My original intent was to remove the hardware and add new. But that was easier said than done. So I moved on to “Plan B”. After really looking at it, I was thinking I could jazz up what was already there. I used some Dollar Store black craft paint and a tiny brush to cover up the industrial looking hardware. To give it a pop of color, I added turquoise craft paint right inside of the hardware. I loved the end product and soooo much easier!

DIY Project #2: The Maps

The maps are my favorite part of the room! The rustic wood frames are from Hobby Lobby during a 50% off frame sale. If you are patient…the sale will come. I knew I wanted to use maps to decorate, so I used a map for every town where my hubby has lived. One is from his hometown, one from his college town, one from where we live now, and one from the beloved family cottage. It took a bit of searching, but I found the free maps online and simply printed them out on my home printer. It added the personal touch to his space.

DIY Project #3: The Desk

The “desk” was actually a small dining room table that I used as his desk. Searching for “desks” online wasn’t coming up with the look I wanted. But if you try to think outside the box, you can find a wider selection on sites like Craigslist. I found this dining table listed for $50. I used a quart of charcoal gray trim paint (trim paint is easier to wipe up) for an easy update. I used Benjamin Moore “Steel Wool” (I’ve used this color so many times, including my little girl’s nursery!)

Small home office makeover with file cabinet desk (5)

DIY Project #4: The sign

Like many home offices, we have a mass of tangled cords, routers, etc. that I wanted NOT to be the focal point of the space. I literally found a scrap piece of wood in our  garage (but you could also use a scrap left-over from cutting down the countertop!). I painted it using the same paint I used for the file cabinets. Then I hand painted a “B” for his monogram. I distressed it by wiping it down with the leftover stain from the file cabinet top. I sanded it down a bit…and done! It added a bit of personality to his space with $0 spent.

The rug is a Target find. It is the tan Threshold “Fretwork” rug in the 5’x7’ size. I have gotten more rugs from that store over the years, and it is hard to beat the price. There is carpet in the room, but I wanted to use a rug to ground the space and make it feel separate from the rest of the bedroom. I found it on sale for $79 on a “detour” down the home decor aisle at Target.

Going down those aisles gets me EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.

I added some office accessories that we already owned and moved in a lamp from another room. Sometimes a room can be rounded out by simply repurposing or taking a trip down to rummage through the basement. I popped in some family photos and the space was finished.

Here’s the Cost Breakdown:

  • Desk: $50 off Craigslist
  • Paint for the desk (quart): $15
  • Maps: $0
  • File cabinets: $40
  • Paint for the file cabinets: $0**
  • Frames: $46
  • Craft Paint: $2
  • Rug: $79
  • Countertop: $20
  • Stain for the top: $5
  • “B” sign: $0
  • Lamp: $0, moved from another room

TOTAL: $257

**I am the queeen of re-using existing paint I already have. Before going out and buying new, see what you already have. Or mix some existing colors to create a new color-that is how I painted my kiddo’s bathroom. Just label that new color so you can find it for touch-ups!

I hope you used some of these ideas to inspire your DIY-wired brains too!

Color Spotlight: Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron






Paint Color Spotlight: Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron. THIS is the deep beautiful charcoal gray almost black you've been searching for!

 

Island painted with Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron.

Hi Remodelaholics, it’s Cyndy from The Creativity Exchange back with my monthly paint color post.  Last month, I talked about 2016 trends in paint colors and if you happened to miss that post, you can find it here.

Today, I wanted to do another Color Spotlight and highlight one of the most popular and versatile interior door and cabinet colors out there.  Wrought Iron from Benjamin Moore is a workhorse of a color because there is nothing that this color can’t do.  While it’s really popular right now for interior doors and cabinets, it’s also a near perfect exterior trim/accent color and it even works well on a wall too.

Paint Color Spotlight: Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron

Before I show you what all this color can do, I’m sharing an image below that compares Wrought Iron to a traditional Benjamin Moore black.  You can really see why Wrought Iron is such an amazing color because it’s a slightly muted version of black:

Color Spotlight Wrought Iron Benjamin Moore. Remodelaholic

Blacks can be harsh but as you can see above, Wrought Iron is a black/brown/gray color that is less harsh than black and the brown in the base adds a little warmth.  In fact, Wrought Iron can look like a very dark brown in spaces with a lot of natural light.  The gray in the base helps to diffuse and balance the black and the warmth.

Let me show you what Wrought Iron can do and why it’s become such a popular paint color.

Wrought Iron is a great alternative to harsh black on window trims 
(see why Whitney calls black window trim “eyeliner for your home” here)

So you see, Wrought Iron is a fantastic alternative to harsh black and the diffused warmth and gray, make this a very rich in depth color.  So the next time you’re worried about painting something black, consider Wrought Iron.

If you’re interested in more dependable and versatile colors like Wrought Iron, I shared my favorite all-star paint colors here and my favorite “nearly perfect neutrals here, on my blog with tons of inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by today!

How to Install a recessed medicine cabinet






Hello Remodelaholics! Thalita here from The Learner Observer. Remember me? I’ve been a busy bee for the past few months growing two baby boys, and since the nesting phase officially hit, our house has been a mess of dust and general renovation dirt just about everywhere! One of the projects we’ve tackled is our main upstairs bathroom (you can see more of that here), and one of my main priorities was making this room more efficient. One way to do this, was to have things built in to the wall since our space is fairly small – enter the recessed medicine cabinet!

I had no idea it was this easy to install a recessed medicine cabinet! This quick and easy guide to installing a recessed medicine cabinet into your bathroom wall will help make the most of a small space.

 

We could have easily just hung this on the wall since it’s only about 4 inches deep altogether, but putting it into the wall in between the studs really just seemed like the best option to make the space feel larger than it really is!

How to Install a Recessed Medicine Cabinet

So first thing’s first. Here’s what we used:

  • a mirrored medicine cabinet (we used this one specifically)
  • jigsaw
  • drywall saw
  • reciprocating saw
  • impact driver and drill
  • wood chisel
  • insulation
  • staple gun
  • 2″ wood screws

You may also need:

  • 2×4″ pieces of wood

You’ll notice our wall has a much bigger hole than necessary – this is because we also had to remove some terrible backsplash from the wall, and the drywall came right down with it. Normally, you’d start by simply measuring how big the back of your medicine cabinet is and making a cut roughly 1/4″ larger into the wall.

The Learner Observer for Remodelaholic.com - Built-in medicine cabinet

Once the drywall is all cut out, you can get started on cutting the wood studs. This is where the reciprocating saw and jigsaw will come in handy!

The Learner Observer for Remodelaholic.com - Built-in medicine cabinet

Because we had studs supporting the bottom of the medicine cabinet, we didn’t bother with adding a piece of wood along the bottom, but this would be helpful if your studs are too far apart to offer proper support. As for the pieces on the side, we notched out exactly what was necessary for the cabinet to fit right into the space, this way it’s well supported on the sides as well.

The Learner Observer for Remodelaholic.com - Built-in medicine cabinet

Once you have everything cut, do a dry fit to make sure the cabinet fits – we had to adjust our cut ever so slightly to make it a bit larger.

The Learner Observer for Remodelaholic.com - Built-in medicine cabinet

Now you’ll want to make sure you replace any insulation that may have been taken out. Our medicine cabinet is on an exterior wall, and living in Ontario, we needed to make sure there was insulation behind it.

The Learner Observer for Remodelaholic.com - Built-in medicine cabinet

The Learner Observer for Remodelaholic.com - Built-in medicine cabinet

Our medicine cabinet had holes already on the sides which were for the shelves, so this made securing it to the wall that much easier. All it took were 4 screws – two on top, and two on the bottom, and the whole thing was sturdy as can be! And that’s why you want to make sure there is wood directly beside your cabinet when fitting it in.

The Learner Observer for Remodelaholic.com - Built-in medicine cabinet

Now it was finally time to finish painting the walls, clean up all of the dust (oh my gosh, there was SO much dust), and we can finally use our medicine cabinet!

The Learner Observer for Remodelaholic.com - Built-in medicine cabinet

Not having one of these for so long definitely made me appreciate the convenience of being able to put things away right above the sink. Such luxury!

The Learner Observer for Remodelaholic.com - Built-in medicine cabinet

I love that it looks like a plain mirror when the doors are closed, but it has this (not so) secret storage inside. The cabinet it about 24×30″, so it has great height, which I love both for the storage and for my tall husband!

The Learner Observer for Remodelaholic.com - Built-in medicine cabinet

We had the extra challenge of making this work with the new board and batten in the room, but thankfully it all all worked out. If you happen to be doing something similar, you just have to be careful to leave a little space (about 1/8″) around the cabinet so that the doors can open properly.

The Learner Observer for Remodelaholic.com - Built-in medicine cabinet

And that’s really all it takes! In all honesty, I was intimidated by this job, but in the end it turned out to be so much easier than I expected! It also helps that I wasn’t really the one doing all the heavy work, of course!

Have you ever attempted to install a recessed medicine cabinet? Would you consider it now? If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer them!
