Office Sneak Peek of Built-Ins

This project was our first major undertaking when we closed on our house!! The office doesn’t have a closet, and I need a lot of storage for props, gear, equipment, etc. so have drawers and cabinets was a must for us!! I will do an in-depth post on how-to, but for now I wanted to document that I hung up art, found baskets for the top, and put books on the shelves! I need to re-arrange those, find plants, add decor to the top shelf, but all in time. Shop our most used DIY tools here.

(And a before of this same wall during the building process, we’ve come so far!)

Most Common Questions Answered!!

+ The paint color is Ben Moore Smoke, I LOVE it in person!! It felt dramatic to do the walls, trim, everything in this color but I love how it makes it feel!!

+ I purchased inexpensive pulls from Etsy, yep ETSY – grab them here!!

+ We made the floating shelves + entire design plan ourselves, and I will share more in-depth in a future post soon!

  • Thanks for the link to the pulls! This is exactly what I was looking for in stainless. I’d love to see how you made your floating shelves!

  • Have you done the post on the shelves? Haven’t been able to find it. Also are these custom made cabinets or did you use prefab and make them look custom? It all looks great.

    • Hello, we built the cabinets from scratch, you can see more on my Instagram! We made them specifically for our space but I share the “how” on IG!

  • Hi. I came across your post and I love the cabinets you used for this built-in. Where can I find them? I don’t see you tagged it like the pulls from Etsy.

    Hope to hear back from you. Thank you for sharing your beautiful job ☺️

  • I am going to attempt a similar project in my home office in the coming weeks. I have the EXACT same window “issue” on the front/right wall and will be stealing your floating shelves idea to make it look more complete on that side. However, I’m still nervous about getting our drawers flush and as perfect as you managed to get them! I’ve been looking everywhere for details about how you made them, but can’t seem to find them. I’ve watched the videos, but would love to see your plans or measurements.
