If the four walls of your home are a little closer together than you’d like, you’ll need a compact solution to incorporate an office workspace into your pad.
Built-in bookcases not only add a ton of character and storage, but they really can make a small house feel so much bigger! I think everything just looks so much roomier in a small space when bookcases and cabinets are built in! Bookcases like these would be quite easy to add to a space, either as a DIY project or the perfect project for a hired handyman. This bookcase makes the most of the corner and creates a perfect spot for a connecting window seat.
Many bloggers have used IKEA bookcases as built-ins and I think that is a FABULOUS IDEA to get a built-in for much less than most custom bookcases.
We have a built in IKEA entertainment center, and I love it… I’ve been looking for some space to put in a bookcase, but have no idea where! I’ve always dreamed of owning built in bookshelves to fill the whole room since I’m such a bookworm… But with e-readers taking over the world I don’t think this dream is feasible anymore. I’ve never seen wrap-around-the-corner bookcases … and I just LOVE them and the way they pull those mismatched windows right into the picture! I love the look of built-ins and you have showed us some really great examples and some very economical ones from Ikea. I hung up her dry erase magnet board and calendar that I got from an office supply store and a printable that I’ll be sharing with you soon.
The final touches were the scalloped magnetic board that I attached a magnetic locker pencil holder to…both from Jo-Ann and both adorable.

The transformation of $6 hotel nightstands into a built-in-wall-to-wall-desk-for-two continues. But before painting, we had to do a bit of construction (we needed to attach them in pairs and built them up about four inches so they’d be desk-height). This little space planning exercise inspired us to take out two of the cabinets and look at the wall with four of them instead (two in the middle and two on each side). Then using my Kreg jig I drilled some pocket holes to attach the front and side together, and then screwed them into the top of the cabinet. That simple frame accomplished exactly what I needed in terms of building things up and connecting the two center pieces, but the cabinets weren’t thoroughly prepared to handle a counter top quite yet.
We decided this was a perfect opportunity to try Benjamin Moore Advance paint, which a number of you guys have raved about recently. We got the paint in Decorators White (a bestselling color by Benjamin Moore), which is pretty much the perfect white tone according to the lady wife. Interesting side note – the pic above is taken after we were done painting all of our cabinets.
Sherry’s tools for the painting task were both a brush (to get in cracks and corners) and a small foam roller (for a quick, smooth brushstroke-free finish on large surfaces). You can (hopefully, although it depends on your monitor) see the slight difference between one coat (on the door on the left) and two (on the door on the right). And of course, a few consecutive days of painting is made much easier when you’ve got a fan club watching you intently (as some of you already saw on Young House Life). As for the backs of the doors and the cabinet interiors, from day one we decided that we wanted a nice clean glossy front for our wall to wall built-ins, but to keep the backs and the interiors (and slide out interior fittings) of the cabinets the same natural wood tone that they were to begin with. They had glossy white drawer fronts, but inside they held up a lot better to natural wear and tear than anything painted (since we’re weirdos who will stash hammers and screwdrivers almost anywhere).
Of course we still have to add molding around the base of them all (so they look even more built-in), which will hide any areas down by the legs that still appear to be wood toned. We’ll also be back with all of our countertop details soon- just gotta make enough progress to snap some pics and share that stuff. Psst- To follow our cabinet makeover process from the beginning, here’s the post about finding our $6 cabinets, the one about other places we looked, and the post about sanding and priming the cabinets to prep them for paint. Yeah, nobody should have a carbon copy of their desk beside their bed, even if their desk is lovely!
I was sick all of last week, so I missed all of last weeks posts, I feel like I’ve missed so much!
As for the Spice Girl reference in John’s title, is it weird that I love him more for that? Totally had the same flashback of my sisters and I making up dance routines and lip-syncing. Disregard the the comment about the painting of the room…after scrolling back up I realize that I completely missed that some how! The list here is too long to even begin, but as you may have guessed, if you have an interest in it, there probably is a few artists that produce art in that subject matter.
Now that we have discussed the major appliances that chill and clean, let's talk about those that do the cooking for us.
The oven is one of the most important appliances in our home, and often the last to get replaced.
Once you have narrowed down what you currently own and want to have, then you can start making your list of options available. If you are wanting to change from electric to gas, there are obviously other considerations to take into account, such as whether or not you can even get the gas to the stove without destroying most of the house.

WOW!We went to market this year in the hopes of finding new products that we can leverage for our projects.
Well February has started off with a bang for us!At the beginning of February, we attended an all-day event for the Texas Chapter of National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA).
Whether you’re routinely working from home or just need a place to set down a book, these 22 wall mounted desks are a super smart and ultra modern option.

DIY Standing Desk: This DIY standing desk uses a basic white painted board to camouflage unsightly computer cords on their way to the power outlets. Prepac Designer Floating Desk ($176): This stable work surface looks a bit more like a traditional desk but still floats about a foot off the ground.
It is awesome how these built in bookcases featured in Better Homes & Gardens, above, define the entry way and give the living space extra character. I love that you can find the perfect bookcases for this kind of DIY or handyman project at IKEA! I know this is luxury because many people have to make special trips to our city to visit this shop. Cute stickers, pink clothespins and a strand of awesome moon lights were found inside and I knew I could use them all super easily! My daughter is surrounded by my loud boys when we work on stuff and sometimes she just needs some quiet to study or work on things alone.
Rather than putting any edge on it, I just wrapped it in a thinner black sparkly duct tape. Then I grabbed an owl paper organizer in their back to school area for her to keep her folders for each of her classes.
If you recall, we last removed the hardware, sanded, and primed them all in preparation for painting them white. But as a thrifty reader named Heather suggested, Sherry told the Benjamin Moore guy about a 30% off sale at Sherwin Williams and asked if he could match it.
You could hold fifteen swatches of white paint up and they’d all look the same to me, but apparently Sherry can see all sorts of variations and likes Decorators White the best.
So you can see the insanely small amount of paint we used for this project (it was nice and thick, so it covered really well). Here’s the wife in the sealed sunroom sporting her inside-out painting clothes with the bean looking on. This is just the first coat going on over the coat of primer that Sherry added a few days ago. And we actually don’t mind the whole wood + white look (sort of like the dresser we refinished for Clara). And we’re going to trim out the sides as well (so they appear to attach to the walls on either end). I guess since they were nightstands from a hotel we’re holding out for slightly less cabinet-y nightstands for our bedroom. You guys have def inspired me to look EVERYWHERE for usable items that can be remixed into something chic, modern and stylish. If you have a beautiful patio surface already, then you may not be inclined to cover it up. While you want to echo the colors of your interior spaces to create that connection (and they can each likely be seen through the windows), you can certainly go more bold with your outside space. There are a ton of fabrics out there that can stand up to the weather elements, provide comfort to you and your guests and lookA spectacular. To give your kitchen that luxurious feeling, you will want to select appliances with the same or similar finish AND handle style. The purpose of the event was two-fold - first to induct a Houston's Suzie Wilford as incoming National President of NKBA (congratulations!) and the second to hear from Candice Olsen of Divine Design on HGTV speak about her kitchen and bath projects. I am heading off to Palm Springs this week for the Winter Conference of the Best Practices Network (BPN). Uneventful for all the right reasons, interesting because there were NASCAR officials and several pit crew members on the flight for the race in LA this weekend. Storage space might be skint, so be sure to have some workspace organization tricks up your sleeve and seek creative solutions for extra space saving, like mounting floating shelves nearby.
Transform your entire wall space into a storage wonderland by stacking bookshelves with the same angular design and blonde wooden finish shoulder to shoulder. The trick is having the wood board cut to size by your hardware store and making sure your stud finder is still savvy. We love the chalkboard finish for this little girl’s room, or spray paint a pattern from a chic chevron stencil! Or use this table space equipped with three cubby holes to assemble and store your Brit Kits! Since the shelves used in this DIY are no longer available, what would you repurpose to get a similar final workstation? Keep the contrast between industrial and au natural with concrete desk accessories to store good old fashioned pencils. Designed with cord management in mind, its underbelly can accommodate a full size power strip. This wall mounted unit’s curved side panels act as blinders preventing peeping Toms from invading your privacy. Two shelves on either side are perfect for displaying talent show ribbons and science fair projects. If you’re looking for a more colorful solution, try wrapping them with neon embroidery floss!
We’d organize our notebooks, magazines, books and records by hue to create a cool color block in each partition! Your post reminds me that the drawer units I purchased there would probably look great as built-ins. I was trying to figure out where a good place would be for her, but the only place I kept coming back to was this small corner in her room. To make these, the only requirement is that you need to have flat heads on the top of the pins. Added the cute chevron push pins and she’s got herself a bulletin board for photos, to do lists and anything else she wants to hang. To say that she was excited to have her own space for school this year…well let’s just say that she is actually looking forward to it this year, and that is saying a lot!
She is the founder of Making the World Cuter, a site committed to doing just what the title states; Making the world cuter, one kid, DIY, yummy treat or crafty thing at a time. Once we had them in place we realized that it was a bit more cramped than we expected; the three pairs of two cabinets left hardly any wiggle room for our chairs.
We loved this configuration a lot more, because not only would it look less crowded, we’d actually feel like we were sitting at desks (which usually have more breathing room than a few inches on each side of the chair).
I cut a few pieces that would span the inside of my new frame and drilled them into the top of the cabinet. Oh and we got it in a satin finish because they only offered that or high-gloss (which I worried would show more imperfections). This means we definitely could have gotten by with a quart (for around $25) but we’re glad we got a gallon since we plan to use the rest of the gallon to paint the cabinets in the kitchen down the road. Three thin and even coats (remember, this is Sherry’s mantra) definitely did the trick, and as seen from the photo of the paint can above, we hardly used any paint.
Except that the can called for over 16 hours of drying time between coats, so instead of finishing this process in an afternoon it was a bit more drawn out over the course of a few days. You can see that we just used some leftover cardboard (from old Ikea purchases like the file cabinet) to paint on. We had to paint the cabinet bases in place in the office (the big middle section was too heavy to lift once the two cabinets were built up and connected), so we just kept Clara out of the room and opened all of the windows and ran some fans (Sherry painted during her nap, so by the time she woke up things were aired out and then we just kept her out of the room so we didn’t get little fingerprints going on).


That’s a really good showing for a first coat according to my paints-everything wife. Although in this case we decided from the outside that the cabinets would look entirely crisp and white (no contrasting color in the door front or anything), and only when you swing them open will you see the wood tone.
We contemplated adding some caulk or wood putty in the slight crack down the center, but we held off since we thought it might be less obvious once the doors were reattached.
I think taking away two of the cabinets was totally the right choice; the legroom is much better. Not only do you want to mirror the tones in your home's finishes, but it has to be weather resistant at some level. Though the options for integrating it are a bit more challenging in older homes, as they were not built to accommodate a microwave. And with our economic climate and the negative news that comes at us everyday - market was hopping! The network is comprised of interior design firms from all over the nation who share thier best businesses practices. We happen to sit next to a pit official, so it was an interesting conversation.This is our second trip to California and it is struck me as an almost surreal landscape. Plus most of these could be positioned at the proper height to make your very own standing desk. It even has an inner pocket where you can store everything from files to photobooth pictures.
I may not be looking forward to summer ending and school starting, but I love getting school supplies organized! I picked up a cute mini bar stool at Jo-Ann for her to sit on, and it’s small enough it can easily tuck under the desk and out of the way. And there’s still more than enough storage space between the four remaining cabinets and our double wide two-tier file cabinet on the other side of the room.
Thanks to a little flat-cereal-box-under-the-spot-being-painted trick (to keep paint off the floor), we got to avoid putting down drop cloths. Your space and the amount of coverage you have from the elements, both sun and rain, will determine the options you have available.
You don't have the same storage outside as you do inside so maximize your storage space with accessories. The manufacturers were so busy taking orders, we found it hard to get anyone to talk to us about the products. Admittance into the Network is through application with a member approval process, ensuring that we are not competitive with each other. Driving from the Ontario Airport to Palm Springs it is the weirdest dichotomy of landscape elements.
We figure finding six dollar cabinets makes small luxuries like an extra $3.50 spent on pre-primed wood ok in our cheapskate hearts. There are tons of options and the information is all available to you on each product, in terms of what it can withstand. The truth is that theses type of projects take time and money, they are fun and problematic, and in the end it is beautiful!
The conference should be great and I know I will come back with more ideas than any one person can implement.The conference and our home in Palm Springs will be at the Hotel Zoso. Our original photo of this got deleted by accident so we had to retake after I had already altered a cabinet.
The last thing you want to worry about is having to protect your accessories, whether you are in the space or not.
And while you’re ignoring things, pay no attention to the paint swatches on the wall. Think about not only the weather elements that it will have exposure to, but also the people elements. If you find that "perfect" piece and it's breakable, find the perfect place for it so it's protected. Often times it is subtle - but every time my client looks at it, it makes them smile.Starlight has several different looks and a few different shapes. You may want to consider whether glass makes sense if you have a really active family that likes to play ball in the backyard. All the clients on her show live in Toronto, although she said that they work very hard to make sure that they are diverse in project type, style and budgets.
These would be more discreet during the day and add a soft glow in the evenings.This product was nominated for a ARTS award at the market. Since it is a television show, she really is not able to share with her clients what she has planned for them until the reveal - which is interesting because they do pay for the project (except for her design fees) and often she comes back and asks them to increase their budgets. Other news from Candice, there are at least another 26 episodes heading our way; Plus she will be a judge on the next season of HGTV Design Star. But we honestly use cloth napkins at dinner time, versus paper - our little bit to save the earth.
The event benefited Trees For Houston, raising money to help replant the trees and canopy destroyed by Hurricane Ike.
We love places like Skyline Art - it enables us to bring original art to our clients from some local and not so local artists.One piece that especially caught my eye was this wooden vase. When summer comes around, we love to have friends over for dinner, let the kids play in the backyard and enjoy good company and a good glass of wine. According to Skyline, the artist uses trees that have been harvested for a variety of reasons by his local park department and landscapers. I'll purchase a new set of patio dinnerware and work with these napkins this summer, and of course, my new umbrella.
The line also has a few products made from recycled newspaper, including baskets and my favorite - a dog. The new showroom at Post Oak and Westheimer, in the Galleria, represents Poggenpohl's largest showroom. Not too large in scale, this dog is reminiscent of the RCA dog and makes quite an interesting accessory in a more urban home.
Look at this picture, there was barely any room to move!Poggenpohl, for those of you who don't know is a manufacturers premium cabinets for contemporary kitchens. The finish on the cabinetry is flawless and enables for custom organization for every need. Store owners and designers alike where there and they were buying products to sell in their business to you! The showroom highlighted a new table that expands to allow for service carts through the center of the table.
So hopefully soon, you'll see these at your favorite places to shop for your home - Happy Hunting!A PLACE TO SLEEP, GOOD FOOD AND GOOD COMPANY While in Dallas, we stayed at the very dramatic Hotel ZaZa - which has a huge room for todays hotel and a hopping bar - The Dragonfly.
There were so many well dressed men in the place - on a Thursday night even!We dined our first night at Avanti Ristorante on McKinney - again, for an economy in a slump - this restaurant was packed. The food was wonderful - we did a DIY tasting menu, sharing a bottle of wine and about four appetizers.
We are also members of the Best Practices Network, comprised of around 100 leading companies across the nation. The acoustic guitar was a perfect accompainment.Our Friday night dinner was at The Palomino at The Crescent with friends and colleagues talking about the show and what we saw.
