Office Desk + Gallery Wall Reveal

Finallyyyyyyyyyyyyy…. my two $6 Goodwill cabinets are living their happily ever after in my DIY office desk!
Remember what they used to look like?!
Pretty much like $6 Goodwill cabinets. Who knew they had such a glamorous road ahead of them? Check out their new digs…
Have I mentioned almost all of these wall printables were #FREE?!
Except for this one of course. This photo was inspired by this über creative duo and I could not be more grateful for their inspiration… love it! Thanks Deanne!
Did you catch the tutorial on how to make a hole like this for your cords… in 3 easy steps?
That bad boy is such a lifesaver! Plus, it cuts down on cord clutter and secretly hides everything!

I love it! (And really love that the project is finally DONE!). This space has come a long way from the original plan…

…and I am so dang thankful. Plus, with the $6 cabinets, the DIY desk top, and all the free printables on the gallery wall… this was one super affordable makeover! Tune in FRIDAY for the cost breakdown and the links to all of the art – FREE!

PS. I know there’s a lot to cover & I’m always pretty awful at hitting everything. If you have a specific question… leave it in the comments and I’ll add it to Friday’s post.

    Love it! So cute, how did you make the desk top? (or did you already post about that and I missed it?)

      No worries, Chelsea. Here are the links to the desk posts. It cost a whopping $6.99 to build.
