Before & after renovations are always a great source of inspiration and really get us motivated. Everyone is capable of pulling off a home renovation or refresh project. If you're not happy with your office, pay attention and you'll realize it may be as simple as rearranging some furniture.
Ed Forero submitted his home office before & after to LifeHacker and even though it didn't involve hammers and serious power tools doesn't mean it isn't worthy of a round of applause.
The before office started off as two large black desks put together in the corner. Large black desks shoved together in a corner will obviously weigh a space down and even more so when you add a bunch of gear and equipment on top of that.
Ed kept one of the desks and with the addition of two new chairs, bright artwork and a fresh coat of paint — the office looks completely different. The point of a good home office renovation is to create a space that is inviting — after all, it is home.
