Turning A Bedroom Into An In Home Office On A Budget

Turning A Bedroom Into An In Home Office On A Budget

Ok so my son finally moved upstairs in July after turning 10 years old and we turned his bedroom into a home office for me!!!!! He had a John Deere themed room, hence the yellow walls. The carpet was 10 years old and had been cleaned so many times we could have put in hardwood floors 5 times over. I had "googled" inexpensive floor alternatives and I found this "brown paper floor stuff". Oh my goodness, I had the carpet ripped up the next day and going at it. You use the brown "contractor's" paper from Lowes or HD. You use a 50/50 glue and water mixture and add 12 coats of waterbased urethane, and Voila!!!! I purchased 2 desks and 2 chairs from a friend who manages storage units (the owners bolted), a cute rug, some baskets and some crates and I love it. This is great look and was a very inexpensive way to update a room for your use or to stage a room to get your home ready to put on the market.
