My Office Chair Gets a Makeover and my corkboard too

I decided to give my computer area a quick update..

First I decided I would redo my chair..
HERE is where this chair first started.. (one of my favorite thrift store finds yet)


Here is what I did with it before...


What a difference!
However, I decided it was ready for a change again.. a pop of color indeed!
So I took it outside, removed the seat.. and started painting.


While the paint was drying I started working on the seat, taking out some of the
nails.. (oh what fun - not so much)





Then I covered it with the new fabric I chose to use, which I already had.. 
and it matches my corkboard, which hangs above my desk.  My Cluttered CorkBoard that is..  :0)


Then placed it back onto the chair when it was completely dry.. and took a look at it.
Just what I wanted!




I couldn't stop there ya know...

So my CorkBoard got some color as well...



I took the clutter off.. 
Here it is.. the reason my blog name is: Cluttered CorkBoard
because it is always covered in 'stuff'.  :0)



I taped off the inside with painters tape, to protect the fabric that I modge podged on it 
a long time ago.. and then gave the border a couple coats of paint so it would match my chair.


Then of course I added all my photo's/momento's (aka: clutter) back onto my newly
decorated corkboard... in a somewhat more organized fashion,
 and here is my new updated office space.




I am really liking the pop of color that was otherwise pretty neutral... and my office
space just has a new, and freshly organized look to it.
Sometimes, I think a simple change can make a big difference!



I think I am kind of stuck on this color lately. :0)

  1. Lovin' the chair Tina....it is a beauty! I love the design in the back of it. The color is perfect on it too....my favorite so far! I have a couple of the same pieces you have in your office....the carousel and the cube with three drawers! I would love to have lots more of those pieces...so functional! Have a wonderful Friday!

    1. Thanks Vicky..
      I know what you mean on the organizational cubes.. I have several of them that I accumulated over time, and they are mostly now in my craft room.. but I wanted to keep a couple beside my desk. :0) They are great for so many things!
