The Office

Last week I mentioned that we were starting a re-decorating project in the office/sewing room upstairs. That wasn't completely true. You really can't "re-decorate" something that has never been decorated. So, I guess I should say, we're starting to decorate the office/sewing room upstairs.

I don't think I've shared any pictures on our blog of that space. So, here are a couple pictures. The first picture is of the office area at one end of the room.

Right now, we just have boxes and other things that we placed in here the day we moved in. The furniture won't stay in the same position it is in. And all the clutter will be cleaned up.

Then, standing in the office area, looking toward the other end of the room will be my sewing/craft area.

The room is a little over 480 square feet. I had ALL this stuff that is currently in this space, in a room that was barely 100 square feet in our old house. Needless to say, I'm excited about having all this space to work.

The floors are hardwood. I actually got to pick them out. They were finished before we moved into this house. There is one large window in the space. Without blinds it lets in a lot of natural light, which is great for a creative space. We will install blinds and hang curtains, but I'll still be able to open them for natural light.

Rhoda has already given me a lot of great suggestions for this room. We are planning on starting it this week. Reagan has a few spots on the wall that he needs to repair before we can actually paint. I told him the prep work always seems to take forever. Then, once we paint, everything else is finished in no time.

I'll post a few pictures when we're done. It's going to be a really fun space if we can get it to all come together. I'm so excited.
