Makeover by Monday | Office Makeover with Refinished Floors
This room was small, but WOW! We did a lot in 3 days! On the last episode of Makeover by Monday, we transformed Ryan’s spare room into an office. We refinished the original hardwood floors, created a custom built-in for storage, and a desk to work. I also share some tips for styling shelves, like these built-ins we added to our Loft project. Then, transformed the little nook into a bench with storage. I’m so excited to share this with you!
The Perfect Office Space
I went bold with the paint in this office, and because of the slanted ceiling, it only made sense to paint the whole room. Surprisingly, it felt bigger when we finished! I think the built-in helped draw the eye up.
I am still sweating thinking about how the crew custom built that desk/shelving unit in that short of time. Our carpenter is amazing! He had to wait until Day 2 to of our 3 day makeover to get the shelving in the room, because we needed to refinish the floors! Speaking of the floors, let’s take a moment to appreciate how beautiful they turned out! We had to sand them down, then refinish them using Rubio Monocoat in Pure, and now these 100-year-old floors are stunning!
Paint: Sherwin Williams Succulent (I think it reads darker because the ceiling was painted green too)

Vintage Rug from Cori Elizabeth Vintage

The “wallpaper” in the nook is actually just drawn on with sharpies! I used this gold, and this black, and the green wall paint. It’s not perfect, but I love it! It also helped once I got a level and marked my lines straight.
One of the DIY’s on the show was upholstering a bench cushion for the nook. Check out the episode for all the steps! The fabric is from Joann Fabrics.
Little Yolo stopped by and tested out the window seat (with storage!)
I think that’s about it! Let me know if you have other questions in the comments!
