One Room Challenge/ Week 4 / Home Office

If you are new to my blog -Hello and welcome! I’m Jana Donohoe, an interior designer, half time blogger, wife and mama to 3 beautiful kiddos in North Carolina. I’m really excited to be participating again as a guest in my second One Room Challenge! If you missed week 1,2 and 3 of the challenge you can catch up below.

Welcome back to the one room challenge week 4 update If you have been following along. So, I feel like I say this every week but seriously where did the week go? Between High Point Furniture Market, a news paper photo shoot and trying to stay on schedule with client projects you can… just stick a fork in me now because I am over cooked! Despite the late post and lack of time on my side I actually feel really good about the progress of the office.

Here is what went down this week

  • Spray painted my coffee table and side table
  • Received most of my art and framed it
  • Received my draperies and Roman shades and installed them
  • Organized samples in boxes I ordered from Ikea
  • Super White Granite installed on cabinet bar

I will give you the scoop on the DIY projects next week and what spray paints I loved and which one turned my whole hand gold! : /

Coffee Table DIY Painting


After some back and fourth on whether to keep my deck or change it, I ended up changing it. This one (below) was in my bedroom, so now I have an empty space in there but …..maybe that will be my spring ORC (wink)! It’s a little smaller then the other one but I love the simple style and the keyboard space! Now, I could easily leave the desk the stained color but that wouldn’t be much of a make over would it? So, it’s getting painted a rich emerald green and I’ll change out the knobs with brighter brass pulls.

DIY desk paint color


Since I am changing the desk which I really do love in our office I may have created another small challenge. How can I hide all the cords and the beautiful computer tower and modem box? Any creative idea’s out there?

To-Do List this week

  • Pick up custom sofa
  • Install sconces and overhead fixtures
  • Hang artwork
  • Hopefully will receive the new Lucite knobs
  • Paint Husbands desk chair
  • Paint my desk
  • Find solution to hide computer tower
  • Touch up paint
  • Find some accessories
  • My brain is fried I can’t think of anymore but I am sure there is more…
