In part 1 of ‘Dining room to den’ I described how we turned our old dining room into our perfect study / home office by customising an Ikea kitchen worktop and storage units. In the second part of the series I’ll describe how we completed the look with carefully chosen accessories, artwork and soft furnishings.
After the expense of a new kitchen extension, we needed to turn our old dining room into the study of our dreams, on a budget and in a hurry, without compromising on the style and the finish. Simples!
Waste not, want not! The wind and rain may have kept us indoors today but we have had a lovely afternoon recycling and reusing Christmas cards and paper.
