Office Nook Spruce Up

I was browsing the dollar aisle at Michael's the other day and hiding on the very bottom shelf I found a roll of printed vinyl.  It was called "shabby chic vinyl roll" or something like that.  They had a few different designs.  I snagged a roll for $3 and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. 

You see, we have an office nook of sorts in our breakfast nook.  It really is a great space and I'm constantly working on it to make it feel like a part of the house and not too "officey" since it is in the heart of our home.  It has all white cabinets and a little nook is cut out in the top cabinets for.....I don't really know what.  It's not even tall enough for magazine file holder thing-a-ma-bobs or anything.  So I've tried to decorate it with a few items to, again, make it feel more "homey" and less "officey".  But I thought this little niche in the cabinets needed something extra.  Enter "shabby chic vinyl roll". 

I simply measured the niche and cut my vinyl to those measurements with a good 'ole pair of scissors.  I know I took before pictures but they have disappeared.  Poof.  Gone.  No clue what happened to them.  So just imagine this little nook being plain jane white.

Here's the after:




Much better!  It gives it just that right amount of color without being overpowering.  Love it.  So quick and simple.   And CHEAP at only $3.  Score!

Now I’m off to run errands and then clean for the Super Bowl party on Sunday!  Yikes!

  1. Lately, the dollar aisle at my Michel's has been in sorry shape, but they were getting rid of the after Christmas stuff.

    I like the punch of color on your shelf. Looks like that was just what it needed. Amazing how sometimes a simple change is all you need!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read each and every one of them and work hard to respond to all of them that I can.
