Upcycle Furniture Pieces
In addition to painting furniture, you can upcycle a door or window to give it new purpose. We used old windows on our angle roof to give the illusion of a skylight.
Not only can you paint furniture, you can add new fabric to cloth chairs to give it a fresh look. CLICK HERE to see how we painted and reupholstered an old office chair.
Create new office pieces from recycled material
A desk is an essential in any office. I was not a fan of carrying one up four flights of steps. We made a desk using an old door and we applied glue on one side to attach dry erase board to the surface. An old table serves as the base. To add some style, we purchased decorative trim to the front.
There are many things that you can recycle from other parts of the house to update your office.
Finally, you have a office makeover that looks great, functions well, and gives you a space that is perfect for you.
