Office Space Inspo

Hello! Thanks for the lovely feedback on my bathroom inspiration post (here). Here's another space that I came across and just loved (and currently still love): Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 10.58.09 PM

It's the office space at ManRepeller, who is hilarious and amazing and I highly recommend following her immediately if you don't already. (AND fun fact: I saw her on the street once and told her that I thought she was amazing and she said the same back to me although she had no proof of such.)

Those great copper chairs are by BluDot, here, and the table is also by BluDot, here. But if you're looking for a more wallet-friendly option, read on...

I love how the desk in ManRepeller is just a big, long table. This one from CB2 is similar to the BluDot one in the inspiration picture and less than half the price:

Or, better yet, this table + top from Ikea for $75 combined:

The copper chairs are a bit trickier to find cheaply, so here's what I would do:

Ikea furniture is notoriously hard to spray paint, but my fave blogger Jenny Komenda at Little Green Notebook writes here about how she had great luck with this particular primer (note that she specifies shellac-based because of Ikea's finish). That said, you could really choose any chair that you'd like to change up and spray it! I recommend Rustoleum, but you may want to try a few brands and test out their particular shades of copper to find which one best suits you :)

Add a few sheepskins to cozy up the "metal":

And some light bookshelves (I have this one in my apartment and LOVE it):

Accessories are a must on the shelves. I love digging around in thrift stores and flea markets (or my parents' attic...) for one-of-a-kind, inexpensive finds. I like how the shelves at ManRepeller aren't overly crowded, but have sweet, thoughtful trinkets and books. Here are a few ideas:
