Revamping a room can help you revamp your attitude and get ready to take on the world! We’re proving it today with our final step of our office redesign project. For those of you who are just tuning in, we’ve been working with IKEA in West Sacramento to update BFFF’s home office. We’ve shared our “before” office pictures and our experience working with IKEA’s very own Home Furnishing Consultant, Jacqueline, and now we’re ready to show you the results! Redoing a work space can totally change your perspective — once you feel happy and confident about where you are, you feel ready to channel that creativity into your best work yet. Here’s what Melissa has to say about the finished office:

“Ever since I hit publish on our ‘before’ photos, today could not come soon enough. I would love to personally invite you into my home office to see our official makeover with IKEA.  Words cannot describe how over-the-moon happy I am with the outcome. I am confident the look we achieved never would have been possible without the expertise of IKEA’s Home Furnishing Consultant, Jacqueline.

Do you have a room you are dying to make over? In my humble opinion, I think a lot of people (including me) put off planning a stylish room makeover because it seems like such a daunting task.  Not to mention you might worry about breaking the bank!  Those were the two biggest fears that were in the back of my mind as I constantly pinned photos on Pinterest of my dream office for the past year. Rest assured, our office makeover was done on a less than $1500 budget from IKEA. And I cannot stress how easy and fun Jacqueline made the process! I incorporated a few items from my home into the design too, though the majority of everything you will see in the photos are from IKEA. As we get into the full swing of spring cleaning, I hope you feel inspired to redo one of your favorite rooms in your house and make it really feel like a home.  You deserve it!”

If you feel inspired to redo your own home, be sure to make an appointment with your local IKEA’s Home Furnishing Consultant! Simply call IKEA and ask to speak with their Home Furnishings Department, and you’ll get connected with a passionate design expert. Once you show them your room’s measurements, they will help you plan exactly how to make the most of your living space. If you are local in Sacramento, California, I highly recommend working with Jacqueline.

      Hi, I realize this post is a bit older, but I was curious if you could let me know if you had to shorten the cord on the Stockholm light pendant fixture when you installed it? It looks closer to your ceiling than I’ve seen it in other photos of the fixture that I’ve found online. Thank you!
