It’s happened again, my restlessness to leave things be has encouraged me to re-haul another one of my past projects. Specifically, my DIY Mosaic Lamp. After its makeover last year I wasn’t very convinced that using resin was the best option for the lamp. However, I decided to live with it for a while before deciding to completely ditch the new design. Well, I lived with it for about 6 months, moved it from room to room (it even lived in the basement for a bit), and now, a year and a half later, I decided it was finally time to fix it.
The last project to complete my newly decorated office was to make new colorful pillows for the twin bed. Using the rest of the fabric from my other projects I made 5 bold, colorful pillows that seriously make me smile every time I look into the room.
An integral step in redecorating my new office is window treatments. If you remember, last week I re-upholstered my desk chair with a grey and white striped fabric that I bought for 20% off in a remnant pile. Knowing that I didn’t want to make full curtains, I was inspired by YoungHouseLove’s posts about making valance curtains here and here to make my own valance curtains in under an hour.
Check out what I made.
Phase one of my office update started with white paint. As I illustrated below, my redecorated office features bright colors with a white background or as an accent. So with my ideas in mind and my white paint purchased, I set out on DIY extravaganza that’s going to have a huge impact on my room design. Now what is getting a white makeover? A lamp, six frames, two candlesticks, and a desk chair. So with all the stuff I needed I began to get started and my mood board vision came to life.

This project was inspired by a DIY ornament painting project (check out this similar project tutorial) that I did with my brother’s girlfriend. The easy, and fun, project gave me the idea to update a few items around my home. So, I pulled out a couple of plain jars and a boring snowman jar for a little redo.
