One room, multi-functional – a makeover story {dining room/home office}

Meet: Sweet Monica from Monica Wants It. I’ve e-known Monica and her amazing DIY talents for quite a while. I’m super excited to ‘show off’ her most recent project. This girl (and her hubby) put in some long hours and hard work and it’s well did an amazing job!

Combined Home Office/Dining Room Makeover

They started with a room which is a combined home office and dining room with dark paneling, wall paper and nothing Monica’s style…
