[Music] [Music] hey guys welcome back to my channel I am so beyond excited to be sharing this video with you guys this has been something we have been working on for the past several weeks and I am so happy that it’s all come together now I love sharing makeovers and just creating spaces that are not only functional but also beautiful and these are one of my favorite videos to create for you guys if not my very favorite they just make me so excited and some things I’m very very passionate about so let’s go ahead and jump on into it so to start out this is one of the bedrooms in our house that we were using previously for a playroom and also kind of a guest bedroom so it was a little bit of a mixture of a room and because our basement is just about finished our boys are moving downstairs and we were kind of swapping some of the rooms out I’ve actually outgrown my office that I had downstairs on the main level and so for that reason I am taking over this room upstairs and creating a more secluded office that I can get a little bit better work done and feel a little bit more focused in so here Kyle and I are just clearing out the room taking the bed out in all of the toys and everything and then we’ll start biking in the floor and getting that carpet clean and just making sure that we’re starting with a totally clean space [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] so once everything was nice and clean and cleared out we just started putting together this desk I will have a link down in the description box for all the items that I can find links for and let you guys know along the way but if I don’t mention where something is from you can go ahead and just leave a comment asking me but this desk was from Amazon and I love love love it I cannot tell you how amazing it is it’s a really good size and like you can see it is super super easy to put together so I just cannot say enough good things about this desk I [Music] next we just move the couch that I had in my old office upstairs to the new office I really love having a sitting space in the office that way the kids can come in and hang out with me or Kyle can come in and just sit while I’m working and I feel like it just makes the space a little bit more family friendly and so that’s why I love having some type of sitting area in here [Music] [Applause] please [Music] so this is actually filmed on two different days the first day we just really kind of set up the office but if the furniture and everything and then the second day I was filming I actually was going in and decorating everything and adding a few more little furniture pieces so the first thing I’m bringing in is this bench that I got from home goods and then this little fiddle leaf tree that I actually got from Ikea but I will link one that I found on Amazon in case if you don’t have an Ikea near you and next I’m just adding in some throw pillows along with some pillow covers that I just got from Amazon I get all of my pillow covers from Amazon and I just feel like they have such good quality ones lots of different options whether you want different colors or different textures and they are always a pretty good deal as well and you’ll notice throughout the room I do like to be a lot of attention to texture and just add different textures here and there and I feel like that just adds a lot of interest and something you definitely don’t overlook when decorating [Music] why do we do [Music] next time just setting up a little tray on my desk using a tray is a really good trick if you want to add several different pieces that might not necessarily go together but you want to create a space that really feels like it’s cohesive adding a few items onto a tray will definitely do that and the tray just really brings it all together so I did share a few sneak peeks over an Instagram they’ve already gotten tons of messages about this lamp I will be linking it down below but this one was from Amazon and then the other items on the tray along with pretty much everything else in the room came from either Amazon Marshalls IKEA or the target dollar spot [Music] we don’t need the paralyzed or tomorrow never see the end of the night bazaar what do we love what do we do to love whenever there’s an done why don’t we do what we do to love what [Music] this bookshelf is one that I actually got on Amazon several months ago and I had it down in my old office but I love this letter bookshelf I feel like it is very pretty and it’s also very functional and that was exactly my goal when decorating this as well I wanted to create some space that would not only look pretty but also be very functional and so that’s why I got these baskets these were again from Marshalls and then I just added a few plans I have my camera set up on there and then just a few little pieces that are very special to me or something that just kind of brings me joy when I see it and you’ll notice that I’m constantly kind of moving things around resituated things pulling things from one side to the other moving things completely off the shelf and putting new things on when you are decorating don’t feel like you just have to get it right the first time this is definitely not the case and I would say nine times out of ten it’s just kind of trial and error seeing what looks good pulling it back and trying something else until you feel like it feels right to you and that’s just kind of the fun of decorating but there are a few rules that you can follow and one of the rules that I do like to use as a guideline is paring things in pairs of three a lot of times pairs of three looks really really well together so [Music] next I am just putting up this big mirror I actually got this on Black Friday for about $20 at Walmart and one of the tricks that I’m using here is just by putting toothpaste on the hanging holes in the back and that kind of helps this as a guide to help us hang it up on the wall Kyle is shaking his head at me because he thinks is so silly he thinks that we need to measure a bunch and I am just not that way I don’t want to take the time to do that and I feel like a majority of the time this little trick works just as well as measuring but I would definitely hate to admit that [Music] [Music] Oh [Music] perfect you want them right there yeah so here we are just hanging up my YouTube play button and then also my logo sign that was made for me by my friend Emily for Mama from scratch and right here I’m just showing you how I am adding the toothpaste to at the hanger on the back and that way it will leave some of the toothpaste on the wall when you push it on where you want and that’s how you know where you need to put your screw in [Music] and last but not least I am just adding this little ottoman that I got from Marshalls and I want to stress don’t be afraid of patterns even if it seems like it might be a little busy as long as you don’t have too many statement pieces or patterns going on in the room it will probably pop in the room and make it look a lot better and a lot more interesting so definitely don’t be afraid and go ahead and try that out [Music] Oh Sophie only a shy [Music] so here you can see the before when it was totally cleaned out I actually forgot to take some before shots from when it was the guest bedroom but if you go into some of my cleaning videos or some of my home tour videos you can see what it looked like before when it was a guest room slash playroom and the transformation in this room has just been incredible the room feels so much bigger this way and it’s just been so nice people to work in a space that I can close the door if I need to and I just feels like my own space and something that is very simple but it has all the things that I need and a few little pieces that just kind of make it feel cozy and warm in a place that I can really enjoy being in for a long time since I do spend a lot of time working in this room so I hope you guys enjoyed this video I will be having tons more makeover videos as you know because we are going to be making over our new guest room also Kyle’s office downstairs and all three of the boys rooms and our entire basement so if you are into a home and room makeovers like I am definitely make sure that you are subscribed on below with your notification belt on so that you do not miss out on [Music] [Music] everything is done I think you guys have to tell me if you like that poof there Caillou couldn’t really tell me if he loved it or not I feel like it’s nice and practical and they feel like it’s good because otherwise it was like so empty there but then Yugi’s emptiness is good let me know if you guys like the pouf don’t like the pouf let me know the other thing I’m kind of struggling with right now is this mirror I love the mirror I love it so good this thing is huge it’s probably like three feet tall maybe like three and a half or four feet wide I’m wondering if I should put something on each side originally I wanted to put those on each side but once I got him home and like wow those are really too small I was hoping for like tall thin skinny like canvases with plant pictures on it and then I was hoping to get like a macrame thing for over there like a wall hanging but I couldn’t find either of those things so I got those which I really love those I do think they look good there I think they look small on the camera but they’re not that small um and like when you’re here because this is such a wide wall this is like where you come in from the door it’s such a white wall and I don’t have any like furniture anything here a part of me just feels like it feels incomplete but then maybe the simplicity of it is good I don’t know let me know your thoughts because I have asked several of my girlfriend’s just seen like what do you think I need to do I think I asked over on Instagram I am just needing a little bit of guidance here I need like an outside eye I asked Kyle and he’s like I like it oh he’s no help but let me know what you guys think of this because I am super undecided [Music]

  • itslinslife says:

    Wow beautiful lovely

  • Mandy Adams says:

    LOVE your office!!! And you two are just the cutest!!

  • Tashanna says:

    So I think your office is missing a place to pin up notes – corkboard. Also thing that wall would look cute with black and white family photoes.

  • Shauna Patton says:

    Love it❀❀❀❀

  • Jennifer Fierro says:

    I love the desk

  • W/Love Ashleigh says:

    You must be excited! It looks so good!

  • W/Love Ashleigh says:

    I eyeball 😁

  • Sherrie Harrington says:

    Love all of your tips!!! The toothpaste one is genius! Love love love the way it turned out 😍❀️❀️

  • R. House says:

    Love the desk for sure, and the lamp! I would keep the pouf too, looks so feminine in there! πŸ‘ŒπŸ½
    I also like it as is, I don’t feel it needs anything more. It’s a nice clean and uncluttered work space to move around in and it looks great! Sometimes less is more. 😊

  • Tracy Roland says:

    Great job. Looks fabulous!!

  • Homely Grace says:

    Love this so much and love you two as a couple!! I'm waiting on my new desk to be delivered so will re-do my office soon too!

  • Catherine Tawil says:

    Love the new office! You guys did a great job! For the mirror, maybe make the entire wall an accent wall with some metallic designs around the mirror? I think it could make a nice contrast with the rest of the vibe. xoxo

  • Sheri Ciliak says:

    Amanda your office looks beautiful! I would suggest you live with the room how it is and see how it functions for you for about a week. Then you can decide if you need to add anything.
    Where did you get the two pictures above the couch? Love those!😍

  • Judy S Hallstrom says:

    Like the ottoman
    It adds a lot of texture and interest to the room without adding clutter.

  • rachel pratt says:

    Love love love it…. you've done an amazing job!!!! Looks gorgeous amanda. I absolutely love the the pattern on the ottoman and the mirror looks amazing. I just live everything you post. Today is my last work day for the week. So looking forward to the weekend. Going to be doing some cleaning and decluttering. Will always be watching your videos. Love ya girl. πŸ’œπŸ˜ŠπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

  • Elaine King says:

    I eyeball everything and it drives my husband nuts. πŸ˜‚

  • Kim Joslin says:

    I think you should something long on each side !!! But remodel is beautiful!

  • Bana Doll says:

    Nice dear

  • Marlene Johnston says:

    mirror is good…no to anything else on that wall.Β  NotΒ  fond of pouf.

  • Sherry Purdy says:

    Love the toothpaste idea. Gonna start using it. Room is amazing πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ˜€

  • Melissa Fedeli says:

    OMG my husband would have lost his mind if I asked him to move it that many times…high five kyle!

  • Graciously Home Grown says:

    I love it! I like the poof but feel the scale is off. I think if you add a second identical one, it would feel better. Great job!

  • Megan Comer says:

    I think it looks good and as for the long wall I think I would do floating candles on each side or small floating shelves (3 on each side) with framed pictures or canvases leaning against the wall and stack on each other… if that makes sense


    Simply beautiful office makeover, I luv your decor style. Awesome job!!

  • T P says:

    Listen girl if your eyeballing method works…continue…There are more complex things in life to concern ourselves with πŸ˜‰

  • Malea Ann says:

    The toothpaste trick is brilliant! I just did it to hang something in my kitchen. It worked perfectly.

  • Audrey Fabulous says:

    Try the sofa under the mirror….I bet it would look awesome to fill the wall, and to balance the mirror 😊

  • Kathy Joseph says:

    Hi Amanda. Okay, I'm writing this shame-faced and embarrassed. Hopefully, Kyle has only spent a minute or so on an answer to my question about that plane. I had a weird feeling when I thought about it today, so I tried to find it on YouTube where I "saw" the clip. I couldn't find it. That tells me it was probably a dream. That's not unusual for me. I have, at times, very vivid dreams. I'm afraid this may be another one of them. Please know I'm not a nut case. I apologize to you and Kyle if you've wasted any time concerning my question. Take care.

  • KayErin says:

    What a wonderful and inspiring makeover! I love the desk and chair (I've never seen one like that; is it comfortable?) along with your other previously owned furniture that blends together so well.
    I like the pouf as it has a purpose (I can imagine Kyle or the boys stretching out and putting their feet up) but it does seem a little tiny; perhaps a small area rug, even running at an angle to balance?
    As for the mirror, sometimes it takes us awhile to get used to clean bare areas; my suggestion would be to live with it awhile. In any case I agree that maybe wall sconces/candles/iron work would work by the mirror, rather than more pictures.
    I think the two smaller pictures look smashing on the wall above the sofa, and pulling the sofa out a little bit might help it all come together better?
    I do love your channel and get lots of inspiration for my own thing:)

  • Erica Baker says:

    I'm thinking its maybe not the mirror, I think its the couch is making it look kind of out of place. The bulkiness of the couch against that corner and to one side of the center of the window maybe got it throwed off?! It may look better in person, but soon as u walked in the room on camera my eyes didn't flow around. Everything else looks good. Love that desk! πŸ˜€

  • RedHotTamale91 says:

    Girrrrl, your music the first 5 mins of this video had me groovin πŸŽΆπŸ’ƒπŸ˜‚

  • RedHotTamale91 says:

    LOVE the pouf! If it wouldn't be too much "clutter" maybe try a gallery wall around the large mirror? If you wanna stay simple, I like the idea of matching macrame pieces flanking either side of it too 😊

  • RedHotTamale91 says:

    Oh, AND I am TOTALLY using your toothpaste suggestion for hanging wall decor from now on!!! You are SERIOUSLY a life saver and have saved me and my bf lots of future arguments about hanging anything 🀣

  • Fi Lewis says:

    πŸ‘πŸ‘it looks great, I love the new desk and chair x

  • Kati Allen says:

    Looks great!

  • Isis Pierce says:

    Omg I love it it’s so perfect !! And I think next you should do the boys new rooms !! 😍😍 and I love the foot rest there !!

  • Michelle Lenee says:

    How about a sconce on either side of the mirror, and maybe a matching floating shelf beneath?

    Everything else looks amazing!

  • Kdrouil says:

    Looks good girl!! Love itπŸ’• Add some lantern lights or hanging mason jars on either side…sorry I don't have the fancy words for thoseπŸ˜‚

  • Dana Love says:

    Where is the very cute pick candle holder from? (The one you put in the tray on the desk but removed) it’s sooo cute! 6:35

    At the end you put it back!!!

  • Alanna Hollier says:

    I reckon, place your poof (when not using it) on the far side of the couch, near that wall as will look like there is more furniture along that wall, then go with your long canvases, or the wreath idea below either side of your mirror πŸ˜€ maybe you could do some of those spherical glass hanging vases that hold air plants, or look like a terrarium for cacti/succulents (either from the roof, or wall either side of mirror)?

  • LofgrenLife says:

    Wow!! This turned out really amazing.

  • Kathryn in Christ says:

    I LOVE the office makeover! 🀩 I just did an office makeover in my school room that posted this morning! I love it! We were in the same page somehow! It turned out really gorgeous!

  • Trisha Brown says:

    For that questionable empty space maybe leave it empty for a spot to put seasonal decor so you can keep it looking simple while at the same time being able to change it out if you feel throughout the year?

  • Shaniqua Hill says:


  • Dianna Baggett says:

    I say leave the empty space.

  • Lisa lou says:

    Wow it is amazing Hun xx how about some hanging plant pots either side of your mirror?!? They sell them on amazon x

  • Sandy Blanford says:

    I love love love your new office! Especially love the new desk and adore the Ottoman puff!!! I think the mirror looks fab! It adds depth to that wall, which opens the room up some more! Looks fantastic!!!

  • Mythili Tummalapalli says:

    Hope you get good use out of your new beautiful office!

  • Mythili Tummalapalli says:

    The mirror looks good on its own but you could probably add sconces on either side to give it more definition.


    The plant in the corner! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’œπŸ€—β€οΈπŸ‘΅πŸΌ great teamwork

  • T. Nicole says:

    I like the simplicity, you don't want to overcrowd the space with decor, it then goes to your brain and makes that and ur creativity overcrowded…..unless u work well in that kind of environment.

  • Donna Johansson says:

    Well done. Love the desks.

  • Karen Diamond says:

    Beautiful office. Looks very nice.

  • Karen Diamond says:

    The big mirror is nice.

  • Karen Diamond says:

    I can see a half table under the mirror with a nice flower pot on top.

  • Vanesa Guanche Gonzalez says:


  • alexandria herron says:

    Okay so I feel stupid. When you were cleaning your mirror I couldn't figure out why you kept missing that one spot….it was on my screen….. Love the room

  • So Cal Mama says:

  • Ella Sanchez says:

    It looks amazing! 😍 Great job mama

  • michelle levy says:

  • Cynthia Ruiz says:

  • Anastacia Cecilia says:

    Bookshelf and desk are my favorite pieces🀎🀎

  • Luise Sandfrau says:

    πŸ‘for hubi

  • Nicole's dolls & Reborns says:

    It looks great really smart. Don’t have to decide right now take your time 🌟

  • Teesha Roberts says:

    Love the toothpaste idea!! Your office looks AWESOME!

  • Tina Packard says:

    Room looks great! What about a couple of candle sconces with your mirror or shelving would look nice as well.

  • dashia rahmaan says:

    Your office looks so pretty…Kyle rocks!

  • Brittany Brown says:

    I like the mirror as is. I do recall you saying you were intending to keep things simple this year and I think if you left it, it would be just that. Otherwise, maybe some small floating shelves?

  • Maria Torres says:

    Love the entire room. I like the pouf a lot.. I love the mirror too. How snout a credenza under the mirror.πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

  • Donna B says:

    I love πŸ’• it! How about adding sheer white curtains with black pom pom trim (Target)?

  • Camilla Parent says:

    I'd love to see you do the boys room because we just moved to a new house and I have no idea what to do to my kids rooms lol. Also I love the mirror alone, your office looks amazing!

  • Lisa Olson says:

    Your office looks amazing! LOVE your desk❀️

  • Amy Hering says:

    Such a beautiful room! I am terrible at decorating. If your little Packer fans want to come visit me in Wisconsin, I’d love to have you help me in my multi-use room!

  • Abby Batterson says:

    Soooooo pretty!! I want. I grabbed these same pillow covers but in the white/cream which was dumb with littles but I’m so happy with them!! so soft and pretty. Thanks for the tip on buying covers and not pillows. πŸ™ŒπŸ» cheaper and so much easier to store.

  • haralsonkaylak says:

    Its beautiful! I would love to see a makeover of the boys room. That would be cool.

  • Infallible Beauty says:

    I have the same mirror from Walmart I love it !!!

  • Lisa Baldwin says:

    Good sport indeed!!πŸ‘ love it!!

  • Tamara Michelle says:

    Love the desk!

  • Tamara Michelle says:

    The room turned out beautiful!

  • Michele Pace says:

    A pretty vinyl saying"something you love" above the mirror would look so amazing!! Find someone who uses a cricut or Silhouette online and they will design whatever you want.

  • Christine Adams says:

    Makeover videos I can't wait to see all of yours

  • Amber McCauley says:

    I like the mirror by itself. I also really like the pouf.

  • Mandy Jane says:

    I love the pouf , But personally I would push it all the way to the left so that it would look like a little Lounger. That way it would mimic the shape of the desk… Just my opinion but I do love the way your room turned out xo

  • dogmomamb says:

    wow I really loved how this turned out!β˜ΊοΈπŸ’“

  • Tamie and friends Motivational vlogs says:

    Kyles office and no nothing by the mirror and the desk

  • Tanya Russell says:

    I have that same mirror in my bedroom and on the sides I ordered from amazon the holders that I think you have above your fireplace with the gray wood with lights. It turned out really cute without being bulky!!❀️❀️

  • Tamarah Dewolf says:

    Its so cool !

  • Monica Hayden says:

    πŸ‘πŸ‘ Two big thumbs up for Kyle!!! I was just thinking right b4 you said to give him a thumbs up, of how you have an awesome hubby and how precious you two are! I can see the love😊 Y'all are so stinkin' cute!
    Thanks for sharing with us! Y'all are a joy!

  • Annette Biering says:

    Beautiful job. I love the space you createdπŸ’•. I lo the desk area and position, and there’s room for when you get the itch to switch. Get something with texture, ie. Wreath, sconces, or something like that on each side of mirror.

  • crimsonrose1970 says:

    Love ladder bookcase. So need one for my home office

  • Eve’s Apple says:

    I’d put two of those tin farmhouse like vases there, so you can put flowers in according to the season. Wall needs a pop of colour imo… love the outcome of the room !

  • Shannon Hines says:

    I actually liked the way you put your office together very nice you two make a great team

  • Homebody Miss Katie says:

    I definitely eyeball most of my hangings. I did get these hanging nails from Target that I use to push a little into the wall, they make a mark and then I know exactly where to put my nails. I do use those 3m strips too! They make eyeball hangin so easy!

  • Destiny Allison says:

    great video video!
