A touch up on a budget

I knew I needed a touch up on my office. My inspiration came from my sister. She shopped around and found the coolest trestle desk from IKEA. She did the white legs with a stainless steel top. So off to IKEA I went.

IKEA has a lot of varieties to choose from, stainless steel tops, glass, wood, etc. So, I decided to go with the FINNVARD white trestle legs, a white high gloss table top with the GLASHOLM black & white finger print glass top. I wanted that black and white punch factor, give it a funky edge to my office.  I then needed storage space, so I went with the BESTA black/brown unit with a black glass top. This hosts amazing storage space with drawers and shelves. The bookshelf behind my desk is the EXPEDIT in black/brown. I added my picture frames, books and silk plants.

Now for the finishing touches. What to do? Wallpaper a wall? add a mirror? I simply decided to purchase black picture frames from IKEA and framed my children’s art work. This adds a punch of colour to the space and makes my little ones so happy to show off their artistic talents!

It’s amazing what you can create on a budget and IKEA is the way to go!
