So it occurred to me that I had started my office ‘project’ just about a year ago, and aside from curtains, I am close to done. However, knowing me, I’m sure I will be rearranging a few things.
I had decided to move our beloved piano from the ‘music room’ to the livingroom, giving myself an office. If you are interested in reading more about the actual piano move- you can go HERE. ( I know you will be hitting that link b/c my life is just soooo interesting! lol)
Withing this past year, we painted this room, (a huge THANK YOU to my cleaning lady’s handy husband, he painted this room in addition to nearly the entire house for a VERY good price,) adopted two retired racing greyhounds, took a well needed break from the photography business and got my sanity back.
May, 2011. The End of a ‘music room’ that was never used.
May 10th, 2011. The beginning of my new office and the beginning of that Gallery Wall.
So fast forward a year, we repainted the inset a grey color and the main walls a lighter white/cream. ‘Cooled’ down the color temperatures, and finally finished that wall. Sorry about the pile of cords on the side. I’m not perfect.
So after the wall was finished, a got that chair from Pier 1. And my boys have ‘their’ office upstairs with Ikea chairs. Some day I may paint those cabinets.
Table (that I use as a desk) and bookcase are from Nadeau.
Knowing me, I will most likely find a new home for those canvasses some day. I tend to do that a lot – rearrange things. That chest of drawers is from my grandparents house and I just love it!
What’s really nice about this transformation, is we now have a nice bright room in the front of the house that not only gets used A LOT, but it allows me to be with my family more. I used to work in a room in the back of the house (the dungeon) and that just wasn’t good.
