Making over our office from drab to fab has been a fun process and heres our latest update!
As I’ve mentioned in all the posts tracking the progress of our office, we are going to post bit by bit and then do one big feature when its all done. We’ve been working with some amazing vendors through this process and can’t wait to share them all in one list. For the stripes we used Martha Stewart‘s new line of paint found at Home Depot. The Color is TIN and came out really pretty. Our office was initially painted all purple, except for this awesome black chalkboard wall. The wall behind my desk was just plain purple and I was trying to decide what to do here. I knew I wanted something silver, something different, and something to add to the already awesome office. Turns out, stripes were it! If you’re looking to do this yourself, here is a quick over view of what you need to do:
1. Gallon of Martha Stewart Paint, TIN
2. Paint Brushes, Bin, Water, etc. All painting supplies
3. A LOT of painters tape
4. Tape measure/Ruler
Process: First you need to tape off the sections you don’t want painted and the stripes as well. This is what took the longest for us to have done. We measured out 12 inch stripes and taped accordingly. Unforunately we decided not to prime so it took FIVE coats of paint. Getting the tape up is the biggest pain, after that painting is a breeze.
Colors we were choosing from, all from the Martha Stewart line. TIN is on the very left.
Here is a photo before much was done to the office:
And now with gorgeous silver stripes + other updates:
I can’t wait to share more of what we’ve been working on, both on the design of our space and upcoming announcements for The Office Stylist. If you’ve got a great product you think would fit into our new office space, be sure to contact us.
