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.
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?
