Accent Office Wall with Work Station

Since I finished this work station wall in my office, every time I walk past my office door I have to stop and just stare at it. I love the way it turned out.

If you follow me on Instagram you will see all the behind the scenes in real time. Or catch this project in my story highlights.

It all started when I scored two new base kitchen cabinets on the Facebook Marketplace for $50. They were brand new so I knew I could do something with them.

At first I thought a kitchen island, but they are such a different style than my existing cabinets I didn’t think it would look right. Then I pictured them the in my office as added storage and a wood work station on top.

The cabinets were not my ideal color so I painted them with Benjamin Moore Advanced Paint (the paint I used on my kitchen cabinets, and a ton of other furniture projects). It was a deep blue/gray and I knew it would look great, as well as cover the dark cabinets easily.

Once the cabinets were painted, I picked up 2 1x12s and a 1×2 for the top and stained it with Minwax’s Provincial Stain. After I placed them on the top, I drilled 1 1/2″ holes through the top in each corner as well as one towards the middle, for easy cord access.

I also cut holes in the side of the cabinets to have access to the outlets they were covering. removed the baseboards for a seamless look.

Once I had everything dry fitted, I thought it was lacking something. I wanted it to be a little more dramatic and a showstopper. That’s when I found an awesome removable wallpaper by NuWallpaper in Groovy Garden. I thought it would look really cool with the cabinet color and add a fun statement wall in my office.

This peel and stick removal wallpaper was so easy to put up as you can see from my time lapse video. Now I find myself looking everywhere to see where I can put wall paper next!

I added shelves with wood I already had and stained it with the the same stain as the work top.

Now that it’s done and my office is put back together I can’t help but just stare at it! It looks so inviting but the best part is it’s functional!!!

Next up I think I am going to paint the other wall of the office a little darker to make the whole room flow…stay tuned!

What do you think? Would you ever put wall paper in your home?

I'd say "atta girl" to a job exceptionally well done. Yes, I'd put wall paper in my house in moderation. Your choice is beautiful and appealing. You have a gift and it's appreciated by your viewers. Thank you!

I love this idea. I'm going to be on the hunt for kitchen cabinets for sale now. This would make a great craft station.
