You may remember that last spring I had talked about doing a little office makeover. I just wasn't loving the wall color in there anymore and Robert wanted to get a new desk. So I started slowly working on the room bit by bit.
First came the new desk. Then came the new paint. I had originally wanted to do a nice blue color in there but we never got around to picking one/deciding on one. We had quite a bit of edgecomb grey left over from our living room paint project (yes, we did actually paint that room--I was kind of waiting for all the kitchen craziness to settle down before I shared pictures with y'all) so we thought, what the hell, and carried that color over into the office.
After we finished painting, we rearranged the room a bit and brought in some floating shelves from Ikea. A little accessorizing and organizing made it feel like we were getting there. But before I show you the afters, you may want to take a walk down memory lane.
This is what the room looked like when we first saw the house:
This is what it looked like about four months later (in June 2009):
And this is it today:
There are still some things I'd like to do down the line, like add some curtains and a larger rug. But it is indeed feeling a little more inviting and user friendly in there.
