Mainly what needs to be stored in there is a desk and office chair because it's going to do the trick. We need a place for our books. Yes, we really need it because there is no other place for them. It would be nice to have some extra storage for office supplies, maybe a few other miscellaneous things. Can I store something? just have a space with some darker tones as i like i feel like we have different themes and like different parts of the house and i like this room to feel a bit different i'm kinda imagining it as a mix of your old living room that many of You guys loved watching that video and I know you really love that space and you still nod to the fact that it's like inside this house we have some furniture that we could repurpose. because I don't think we need to get everything new, there are probably a lot of

An absolute mess because we just moved in and this space has been kind of a dump for all of our boxes so first things first we're going to get this cabinet out of here because we're going to put in some new shelving I'm so excited let's do it , I bought my one

item

for noah's office and it's a new bookcase it's something we need and I think this is going to be a really beautiful focal point along the back wall I knew I wanted an industrial style bookcase something with tubes like pipe stands these shelves are usually as expensive as over a thousand dollars and i didn't want to spend that much there are so many people doing handmade products on kijiji or facebook marketplace and they make custom furniture so i went to kijiji i wrote shelves custom industrials and i found a vendor that makes custom pipe shelving this shelf cost me about 300 i sent custom measurements he even painted it on this navy blue which was actually the color of Noah's accent wall in his old living room and I love how it cost me a fraction of the cost.

I will like a large store and it is personalized. which is awesome, i just want to update everyone. I stubbed my toe so hard it bled and I almost threw up, but we're back. I feel like I might have broken my toe. lifts up and it looks so good lottie hates when i sing so well let's do the shelves we have five shelves which means the bottom is going to be empty but i'm really excited about that because i'm thinking baskets for tons of storage underneath thoughts worries no i'm sure yet oh ok he's not sure we don't have six yet they look so good oh my gosh oh we're mixing up shelves ok so we're just finishing up building these shelves they look so good I can't wait to see what they look like in full space.
I'll see you tomorrow for makeover day. Are you ready to shoot? Yes, I am filming them. Noah and I built this shelf and yelled at each other behind the scenes that it was probably edited out, but I'm very happy with it. It still needs a lot of styling. We just throw the books out here and there are books that need you to know. to be placed but I'm really very very happy with this c Ustom filled it looks amazing so now it's time to style the space into something beautiful as I was only

allowed

to buy one thing for this office, which was this beautiful shelf money well spent.
I really needed to buy Noah's old apartment, my old apartment, and I figured out what furniture was going to go in here, so this is it, it doesn't sound like much, but I thought carefully about the function of each of these pieces in this space, so obviously noah's desk is coming in here because this is his office this piece is a noah piece and we both really love it it's a credenza but i think i have a fun use here this chair is from my old living room many of you asked me where from it's this chair it's from an item but from a few years ago and i love it and i think the color really works here this bench is really beautiful it's a storage bench it's been passed down through noah's family and his grandmother was actually going to get rid of him or his parents i can't remember but someone was getting rid of him and i said no don't get rid of him we'll take it and then the rug for this space is the rug that was in l Noah's living room in his apartment and he was like he really wanted that in my office and he also requested that this chair be up here and not down in the living room so we didn't put it anywhere else in the house because we knew he was going to the office. all this furniture in place and then we can design come on you might not think of putting a cabinet in an office but i always find people say i need storage in my office i really dont want filing cabinets like i want something fancy, so i had the idea to put this sideboard here because it has a lot of storage space and my idea is to create kind of an L shape so i envision Noah's desk going here and then the sideboard here this could totally fail and It's just not a good idea, but let's put it in place and see if it fits.
I like it really nice and there's an outlet behind here which is awesome because I'm thinking I can put a printer in here maybe a light this is a lot of storage so now that it's in place I'm going to organize it a little I love how there's a sectional open here because this may just be for things that Noah is going to take all the time like his billion notebooks wow he really has a lot of notebooks this one just says hi we kind of shoved all our printer paper in here but I actually I think this is the perfect place for the printer paper because I'm going to put the printer up here, like I mentioned, we could also put it behind this door, but I want to use this for more things that we don't access as often. now that i brought this printer i'm going to print some art for noah's office this is a trick people ask me about a lot so this is as a refresher for those of you who check out my channel regularly on etsy a many artists or printers sell their prints online for a small fee they send you the actual art file so you can download the print yourself onto your computer go out and print it or thanks to the hp plus smart printer i can do all of this at

home

and it's very convenient this hp plus smart printer is part of the smart print system through the smart app you can print, scan and fax at any time from your phone so it's very convenient because when i'm looking online for art downloadable if i find something i can print it right from my phone my favorite The thing about the hp smart printing system though is the inst ink subscription antanea i dont know about you but whenever i need to print something i always run out of ink and its always something really important i need to print but with ink subscription your printer knows when you need more ink when its running low and hp literally sends you new ink cartridges to your door every time you need them so I don't even have to think about the bonus you actually get six months free umpteenth instant ink with the hp plus system another thing i love is that hp is committed to sustainability so when they send you your new ink cartridges they also send you a bag you mail it free of charge it's a prepaid envelope and they recycle your ink cartridges for you hp also commits to planting trees in equal measure for the printed pages believe me when i say you should check out hp plus i will link them in the description box below i love this print noah is a skier and e It's a map of Whistler's black comb that you still don't know yet I have no idea what I'm talking about ok I could hang it here but I love the slanted prints and I like the idea of ​​having this propped up on the credenza it just gives it a more informal atmosphere.
I'm also going to bring this guy that I just printed out and I'm going to put him over the top and all of a sudden you have a little moment here. furniture company which is very conv enient the company is a branch they sell all kinds of amazing office furniture they are the same company i bought the office desks from at team ag hq this desk is different because it is a standing desk so that you just plug it in and then it works up it also goes down to a sitting position i could do that for hours all to say i love this setup no i can stand and look out the window theres just a tree thats all you see out this window heres this monitor which is cool and then the sideboard i feel works so well there because he can just lean over to grab whatever he needs printed there is storage space i am going to design it with pens and pencils i think this is really working of course we will bring a desk chair this one is also from branch it's ergonomic oh so comfortable we actually use this chair a lot in my series make my space work one when we're renovating

home

offices because it's like snug and also sleek and minimalist maybe i should work here instead of looking in setup yo it's so good it's so good this is another family heirloom i think it will give it a nice warm glow to this nice room i'm going to bring a rug next and this rug is the rug i put up noah's living room makeover just before we decided we were going to move in together i love this rug it's so beautiful it's like noah's style i really wanted to put in the living room but he insisted i go up here i decided to put the rug lengthwise instead of widthwise i feel like with the ripples it would have looked like a bunch of exposed hardwood flooring and i really wanted this rug to take up as much space as possible if you're working with rug or sort of glued with a rug you used in another space and they're bringing it somewhere else r you might have to play with the position of it it looks a lot warmer in here noah requested a reading nook in this office this is from my old living room as i mentioned i'm thinking it's going to go in this corner me love how this came from my house this came from noah's house and together they look so lovely bringing this light this was noah's room wanted to put this in our room but then we ended up being different side tables i think this fits really well here it is like an industrial type of modern cute there's another light that I was actually going to give away and I was like not giving this light away because I love it it's a cool piece it's kind of like a silver bar so I'll bring it over I'll put it next to the shelf again it just adds ambience and comfort to this room i feel like people forget to decorate their offices you know they forget to make it warm and cozy because its like my office has my computer but i create or that adding all these lights is a very goodexample of how you can make an office feel really warm and cozy and also a dual purpose space like no one now has a reading spot i mean i can read in here i love how it all comes together im going to start adding some art in the walls just bring a few things that noah and I've put it together nicely so we like to organize this shelf loosely but I'm going to do a few tweaks to make it look a little fancier but I love how the books are color coded.
Noah wasn't sure at first and then we did it and he was like oh yeah I like it so much better it just looks instantly stylized without really trying to enjoy this time lapse of me cleaning this shelf so noaa it has a lot of loose files and paper and things like I'm sure many of you at home and filing cabinets are very expensive and it's very hard to find one that is both decorative and functional, for now what I've done is organize all your files in one really big basket. I already think it's a pretty good solution for now also if you live in lik It's a small apartment, a studio and you just don't want a filing cabinet in the middle of your dining room.
This is another good alternative. I bought something else for this room. from the decor and that's the light so as you can see we have track lighting here it's not pretty noah said he wanted a new light so it was like he just kept the shelf and didn't change the light or just like I just spent a little money on a new light. I found this light for less than a hundred dollars and I really think it's like the final piece to tie this whole room together. What do you think is good? i'm sure ok we're so close now it's time for those finishing touches lots of plants that are easy to care for because you know noah won't like it remember to water the plants at all times the trays are great for corralling all that stuff t have never had a home like staplers headphones all that is nice and perfectly cornered for noah and of course some pens and pencils are ready to reveal to noah let's grab them ok so before we open your eyes i want you to imagine what this office looked like before it was full of things.
I took into account all your requests and I can't wait until you see it. Are you ready? one two three oh my gosh it's amazing yeah yeah yeah i feel like light just like it ties everything together yeah it ties together nicely with the shelf and the side a little read nick here yeah me and claudia will do the hour from the story, so is your desk, branches never look better, so good now back to work. oh, that wasn't fun, but it was kind of fun, this is one of the last rooms in the house that we've done, that we've put together, no more right now, no more, oh, except our kitchen, great, guys. i got it i really hope you enjoyed this episode of my rental as always decorating your home is a process no and i just moved here so im sure things will change and evolve as we live in space but for now i am very glad that he loves his office and has a place that is just for him many thanks to hp for sponsoring this video if you are interested in learning more about the hp plus smart printing system be sure to click my link in the description box below as always i'll see you guys next time bye
