Home Office – Craft Room Makeover with Coffered Wall!


Recently I had to move my home office downstairs to make room for the new nursery upstairs. I decided to do a combined home office/craft room for the days my daughter may be home with me while I’m working, I figured this would help keep her busy!

Craft Room

I started with her craft room as this is of course the more important half of the room :)

Furniture: I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on the furniture so I took an old oak table and chair set that I had, oak paint brush, and oak shelving unit (graciously given to me by my bosses wife from one of our model homes) and sprayed them white and of course I had to stain the table top and seats of the chairs in my signature grey stain for that craftsman look.

Wall Décor: I added a fun wall mounted mason jar organizer from wall décor (they have such cute stuff right now) to organize my daughters art supplies. And of course I had to add a tinker bell vinyl so she would have someone to sit with when I’m working :)

The paint brush is my main wall accent in this room and I didn’t really feel like I needed to add anything else as this is such a statement piece.

Designated Areas: I purchased this chalk board/dry erase board from Urban Renewal in St. George which is one of my all time favorite 2nd hand stores. Jenny Larson the owner travels all over the U.S finding old antiques and doors, they also have amazing old toys from the 50s and 60s.

The Details: I got some very industrial baskets to hold her crayons and paint supplies so they can be easily cleaned, and topped it off with some clip boards to show case her art work.



You may have already read my blog on the Coffered Wall “How To” which was the main feature of the office section of this room.

I wanted to keep this half of the room really simple with all the attention directed towards the coffered wall. I kept the color scheme and décor black and white and only brought in modern decor like the lamp with just a simple Edison bulb and no shade.

I topped the room off with ceiling height window treatments and a fun blue chevron rug from

1 room, 2 uses, in the end it came together perfectly!

Client Testimonials
  • The AHH team just completed our house in Hurricane in August, 2016 and they did an excellent job. We live in California and when we started the building process, we heard all the horror stories about trying to build a house ""long distance"" but AHH made sure that none of that happened.There were a few hiccups along the way but that's to be expected for this type of project. Communication is the key factor for a successful job like this and, even for the hiccups, they were on top of it all the way.
    And one more sign of a professional organization is that, even now, after the job is done, they are just as responsive to our needs and questions as before. They really do care to do a good job!
    We can't say enough good things about AHH and their professional staff and will recommend them to anyone who want to build a home in our area.
