Thanks for all your amazingly sweet comments yesterday about my home office makeover reveal. You guys are the bomb diggity.
Today I’m sharing some more details about the makeover and where I purchased everything. And you know how I like transparency, so I’m also sharing the approximate cost of the makeover. I’m going to give the prices of things I specifically purchased for the makeover.
Wall color: Voyage by Valspar… $30
Workstation: 6×6 Ikea Expedit (now called Kallax) shelving unit and Expedit (Kallax) desk… $200 + $50 = $250 (BUT it was technically free to me because I cashed out some credit card points I acquired through paying for our wedding expenses.)

Shelves: Ikea EKBY JÄRPEN/ EKBY BJÄRNUM… $25
