#oubstyle - Meet Erin | Our Urban Box

Hey there! Welcome to my new style series – #OUBSTYLE. #OUBSTYLE is all about featuring your style. Yep, I want to feature you and your amazing home and interior style. We all love a peek into other peoples homes, see how they style that Kmart piece or that Freedom lamp. It provides us with inspiration, ideas and can motivate us to do something amazing with our own homes.

#OUBSTYLE will feature homes that have been styled with a mix of both bargain purchases with some luxe options. Homes that are lived in, homes that have been styled by someone like you. I’m so excited to be bringing you this series!

Lets get started

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Beautiful Erin is friend of mine who I met in The Clever Cookie School of Blog course. She is a lovely soul, caring, thoughtful and bakes a mean cake. You can find her blogging at Erin Made This – a creative haven filled with delicious treats and fun and easy crafty things. She also wants to be Beyonce’s best friend. You can’t not love Erin. Lets say hello and have a look at her office makeover which was completed on a tight budget.

Hey hun, can you tell us a bit about yourself?

I’m Erin. I live in Sydney and work as a high school teacher. In my food time, I write a blog at erinmadethis.com, sharing the things I make. This is usually food.

What inspired you  for your office makeover?

It was a little dated and none of the elements really worked together. My desk also wasn’t really that functional either and it was uncomfortable to work at.

What is your favourite thing in your office?

I love the peg board back drop. It’s extra special because my dad made it for me. It attaches to the wall with 3M strips and the weight of the desk holds it against the wall. He bought the peg board and framed it with some timber.

What was your biggest and least expense?

The Eames replica from Matt Blatt at $89 and the least is the pot for the maiden hair from Bunnings at $15.

5. Is the office finished or still work in progress?

Definitely work in progress. Especially because I’m moving in a couple of weeks! I want some storage/ drawers for paper work. I am lusting after this.

6. Care to share what stores you purchased from for the makeover?

Floor Lamp: Target
Desk and Trestles: IKEA
Light box: Typo
Chair: Matt Blatt
Pot and plant: Bunnings
Pegboard: Bunnings

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Thanks Erin! I’m in love with your office and your pegboard. I love how Erin has used lots of plants in her office. Did you notice the little succulent in the ice cream cone? Super cute idea Erin. And the little polaroids pegged on a string – easy idea! Little personal details like that is what make a space uniquely yours.

    Erin’s space is just like her, full of cool. I love that pin board the best, clearly cleverness runs in Erin’s family. Her dad is as ace with his toolbox as Erin is with her camera and kitchen utensils! Now I can imagine Erin at work and see all the magic happen!

    I’m gonna love this new series, Fleur.

    Every gal needs a Dad-made pin board just like Erin’s! I love that bargain geometric pot, good old Bunnings! Hope the move goes well, Erin. x
