Well, What Do You Think?

After a grueling 24 hours of cleaning, organizing, painting and using the power drill A LOT! I am proud to show you the after photo of our office:


What do you think? Good lighting, well use of space on the wall above the desk. Clean and clear desktop. I even went out and cut down my newly planted tree outside to put in a vase on my desk for some visual height. Does it work???

I only WISH this is what my office looks like!! I guess if I lived in a Pottery Barn catalog it would. I keep telling myself that things always look worse before they look better. So I'm still at it. Thanks for all the great ideas. They will come in very handy as the days go by.

My office could totally look like that too---if NOBODY ACTUALLY LIVED HERE. =)

Hahahahaha! You totally had me! My eyeballs were glued to the photo & I was seriously thinking, "Ohhhhh, I'm so jealous of Cara's PB magnet boards...."

Hee hee! Isn't that funny? I'm such a sponge.

Good luck on your project! I'm tackling the playroom. Blech.

You crack me up. I was all set to go and leave you a flowery comment about how much I love your taste. Come to find out...we DO have the same taste and I can still like you because you don't have an office that really looks like that.

Wow...you really had me here. I was sitting here looking at the picture STUNNED that you could do all that in a day! Then, when you mentioned cutting down the tree, I started to wonder!!!!
I LOVE your website...and look forward to reading it everyday!Cheryl

You really had me going there...I couldn't believe how fast you accomplished this, and the photo looked so familiar...I was forming in my mind what I was going to say, as I looked at it, and I was going to say, it looks exactly like a Pottery Barn office. You are too funny!

I started laughing the second I saw the picture. I WISH I lived in a pottery barn catalog. Good luck with the office. Let me know if you want help. I was serious when I offered to come over!

Good one Cara. You really aren't too far from this reality. I wish I had Tom's talent for building things. Your office furniture is cool!

Your office does look like this. Just compare the pics from the last post. The desk, wall hangings, computer. All you need is the chairs (which don't look very comfy) and the tree in the corner.

Jennifer said...

I was thinking the windows had to be an addition. (I wouldn't put it past you)

Rofl!

You really had me! Too funny!

I was actually sitting here saying to myself, "Wow, she cut down her own tree . . . ."

LOL!
