Emily juggles a successful creative business as well as her family of four so having a space to work at home is crucial. She had a large enough room to work in, but it was dated and not necessarily the most functional. First, Emily worked with a professional organizer to help edit her current work space. Add some of her signature cheerful DIY style and this uninspiring room was transformed into a bright and fresh space that will keep her organized with no shortage of creative inspiration.

Can you believe it’s the same space?! What’s amazing about this transformation is that it was done on a very low budget considering how big the “wow factor” is. Emily is a DIY pro and transformed the built-in with paint and some serious time and patience. Yes, those dots are hand painted!

Once Emily had help sorting through her belongings with Ashley of Pare + Edit and only keeping what she really loved or really needed she was left with an uncluttered space with room for whimsy and surrounded by her very favorite things which makes for a happy and productive ‘creativepreneur’!

Well it looks like Emily from Cheerfully Made has been super busy in the makeover dept. You may recall this amazing guest bedroom makeover of hers we shared before and now she’s moved on to her home office.

Visit Emily at the Cheerfully Made blog to see more and learn how she accomplished the hand-dotted print on the built-ins. Like Emily’s style? Check out her guest bedroom makeover which she previously shared with us.

Thanks, Emily!
