Office Reveal!

This post has been a long time in the making… much longer than I’d like to admit.  At least a year, maybe two.  Sometimes projects take a bit longer than intended for unforeseen reasons.  Isn’t that pretty much the way that all home improvement rolls?  I think it is.  Oh well, bottom line is this room is now done!
I started with a mood board and this before pic.

I used Rustoleum and haven't had any problems with scratching.
