A Place 2 Call Home

I recently started following A Place 2 Call Home and fell in love with Jen's style. I am currently swooning over one of her latest projects - her office.  Jen so nicely allowed me to share her room makeover with you.  The best part of this project... It was completed for just $246!

The Office Tour

Notice how nicely she makes the combination of traditional and modern flow in this room.
From the beginning - A blank slate.
Jen mentioned that several of the items, like this lamp and chalkboard, came from other rooms of her house or the attic.
I love being resourceful and re-purposing items you already own. It makes me so happy!
The little basket also come from her attic.
The other items came from a smaller set of bookcases that were previously in the room. 
The desk was $1 for Habitat for Humanity.  This is my type of shopping!
The shelves were $17 each from IKEA.
Most of the accessories came from her attic. PS-I would shop in this girl's attic any day!
The chevron rug caught my eye right away.  Jen said that rug was only $77 from Wayfair. What a great steal!
I would love to have a brown, navy or mustard color one for my living room.
I love, love, love this desk area!
The metal memo boards were $12.50 each.
The industrial looking light is from IKEA.
This ruler just might be my favorite feature in the room. I think it would be perfect for measuring ribbon!
The ruler also came from her attic and was adhered using mounting putty.
The 1, 2 and 3 jars were $2 from the Christmas Tree Shop.
The clock was $6 from IKEA.
The End

This is a great reminder that you can have style and function while maintaining a reasonable budget.  If you would like to see more design from Jen, I highly recommend you check out A Place 2 Call Home.  The rest of her home is just as wonderful as her office.

A special thanks to Jen for allowing me to share her home with you.
