Before & After: Dr. Rabbit's IKEA Home Office Makeover

We've seen lots of before and afters here at Unplggd, from cable box magic tricks to disappearing desktops, but an entire home office done using 90% IKEA stuff? This, we've got to see...

First, Dr. Rabbit needed a new office in her New York apartment. What was once before was just screaming a much needed overhaul - a crowded mess of mix-matched furniture, old blinds, and a huge TV; everything had to go. After months of planning, she finally made a trip to her local IKEA and Lowes for wall paint. The result?

"Being I'm an Art Director by trade, I really wanted to go with an "Artsy" feel to the room. I also wanted to open up the sliding glass door more and have the whole thing be more airy..."

We guess an "amazing transformation" would be an understatement here. What she's done is simply wonderful, chic, and divine. It's hard to imagine anyone who would refuse working in that light, dreamy office. Heck, you'd have to pull us out of our seats once we got comfortable..


  • Flooring: Home Depot (Dupont Classic)
  • Desk: Ikea Vika Gruvan Tabletop and Vika Artur Legs
  • 2nd Desk: Ikea Alve Secretary w /matching Hutch and Bench
  • Drawer Units - Ikea Helmar and Andy
