My Home Office Makeover! {Big Giveaway}

What was once a fun hobby for me has turned into a full-time business from home. As my success in the social media industry flourished, my office sadly did not. Instead, it became a dark, unorganized MESS.  I needed some major organization, more comfort and most of all – style!

My husband actually prompted me to makeover my office. He also suggested that I purchase a new, more professional desk, office chair and wing chairs. I also had just received some great ergonomic office products from Fellowes, so it was the perfect time to integrate those items into the new design as well. (I’m also giving away these Fellowes products, so keep reading!)

The first task was to take everything out of the office, which mucked up my living room for a couple of days, but made the process easier. This included clearing out all of the cluttered and dusty bookshelves, unplugging (and untangling) all of the electronics, and moving out all of the current furniture.  When the room was completely empty, we vacuumed the carpet and dusted the furniture/electronics that were sitting in the living room/foyer.

Once we had a blank canvas, we slowly brought pieces of furniture back into the room, but placed them in new places. Fortunately, my husband has a great eye when it comes to designing rooms, so he had awesome ideas on furniture placement. It is amazing how much rearranging furniture can make an office look more professional and streamlined!

When the furniture was in place, I decorated the bookshelves and placed necessary office supplies and products around and on my desk and inside drawers.  Some of these office products included my coveted P-12C Cross-Cut Shredder, as well as the ergonomic Fellowes Mouse Pad/Wrist Support with Microban Protection. I only put out what I absolutely needed to make my office functional (minus some fun/interesting items for the bookshelves) and boxed everything else up to store in the garage.

It took a couple of days to complete, but wow, it was a major transformation!  I did not take a before photo (I know, lame!), but I did create a nice collage of the finished room, minus a new leather office chair that came later.  What do you think?

Each day when I pop into my office to work, I feel inspired and have noticed that I am more efficient with my time. I have also noticed that the ergonomic products have made my job more comfortable. The other day, I had clients over and I have to admit that I felt proud to consult with them in this new, hip office.  I am just in love with it!

    I do bookkeeping for 4 businesses out of my home office, as well as all of our personal paperwork. I need a makeover to help me keep everything separate and organized!

    My home office is a shared space, so it can use the help to make it more organized!

    I need a home office make over because I don’t really have one. I have a desk and different things to organize paperwork/etc but they are all over the house. I would love to have a space dedicated to organization and being productive.

    My office workspace is steadily shrinking. I need some serious organization, but probably I need that shredder most of all! Decluttering would probably free up some space.

    My home office needs a makeover because it is so unorganized. There is stuff all on top of the desk. There are papers inside and on top of the desk that need to be shredded and the rest need to be organized. Thank you for the giveaway!

    I have no decent shelving in my office, which means all the mail I get for my blog tends to be stacked upon itself. Not the most efficient way of organizing.

    We are in the process of moving and would love to have an official organized wonderfully cute office as yours looks now ;) With all the time this Mom spends on the office area, some eye candy organization is in order. Thank you for the giveaway.
    Love, love, love those chairs. There are some Aersoles wedges for this season that would go very well with them too.

    Our home office looks more like a catch all. There is papers all over and there is to much papers set aside to shred and file, sometimes I don’t know which is which.
