Y’all remember how my office looked at the beginning of the month:
Here’s how it looks 27 days later:
(plus a cute puppy)
OK, that picture is a little deceiving because it doesn’t show the whole room… So, let’s take a before and after tour from each corner.
The bed frame and fan were moved to the garage (where they belong). And the artwork on the floor was moved to my “art stash” in my craft room. I added a pair of Overstock.com curtains (hung on a Hobby Lobby rod) to the room.
(Yes, I like to watch Breaking Bad while I run on the treadmill)
I cleaned! All of that mess in the before picture was put away, donated to Goodwill, or thrown in the trash. I didn’t just move the mess to another room for the ‘after’ shot. The white bookcase is currently in the garage…I need to post it on Craigslist. The books were moved to a new bookcase in the closet.
I finally painted the desk I bought off of Craigslist - full details to come in a separate post!
We didn’t have enough room in the garage for the mattress, but making room in there is definitely on my list. I also haven’t found the perfect TV armoire yet.
With that, I managed to cross 7.5 projects off my to-do list!
Paint stripes on the walls
Paint/upholster desk chair
Sell white bookcase on Craigslist
Buy/Build shelves where bookcase used to be
Find an armoire for the TV
I still have some work to do, but I think it’s a huge improvement…and I love actually having a desk to work on! As usual, I’ll keep you updated as I continue to cross projects off that list.
