Office space in the works... :)

(Told you most of my stuff was dark... Can't wait to paint)

To create this look for your space...
1. First you will need a thin large piece of wood(home depot will sell you scrap wood for a 1/3 of the cost-and cut it to your hearts desire for free)or, if you are able to, paint your wall with chalkboard paint. One can is all you need.


2. The following items: 

2 Magnetic Strips
$8.99 ea.

2 Picture Ledges
$9.99 ea.
Ikea picture ledge found here(

3 Shelf Inserts

$5.99 ea.

1 Curtain Rod

3. Assembly
  • Attach the magnet strip's to the picture ledge's(you will need a drill gun for this), then attach the ledge's directly on to your chalkboard through the wall. 
  • Once the ledge's are secure attach the curtain rod underneath the picture ledge. 
  • As for the shelving, I turned them upside down so I would have a lip to keep things from falling of the shelves. I also omitted a pair of the shelf legs using only the actual shelf to cap of the top shelf. 

Thats it folks, embellishment's are up to you. You can improve, change, or rearrange however you like. 
**Since the move I no longer have just a "spot", I now have an entire room to work in-small, but it sure beat's the heck out of working in the bedroom. I get to paint the new office and add a few things too. Yippee!
