How To Create The Dream Office For Under $600

I recently spent a day with a good friend of mine who was revamping her spare room to create a dream office space for her at home business.  It’s surprising how beautiful you can make a space look without too much outlay. So with all the pinterest ‘office envy’ going on out there I thought I would give you the rundown on our day, what we bought and where we got it so you can make your #officegoals come to life

Here is our itinerary and shopping list:
