So, we've been hard at work making the house our own, so I thought I'd show you some of our progress. The former owners had a lovely shade of powder blue in the dining room, befitting perhaps a small clan of infant boys. Well, since we don't need a dining room (and coincidentally sold our gorgeous Mission dining room furniture only six months ago), we decided to turn the room into an office. My office. And it's awesome. Although I don't get to use it very much because it has no doors and my boss says the kid noise is unprofessional (what does he know?), so I typically sit on my bed with the laptop and work (I'll save my work bitching for another post...but suffice it to say I'm not lovin' it). Anyway...here it is!
The office before (camera seems to wash out the colors a bit, but you get a sense of the nursery-blueness of it all).
The office after. Note the wine glass on the desk. After putting that mother of desk together, and doing what I could to prevent the children from learning any new swear words, I needed it! I have since added a nice potted plant on the top left of the desk and pewter lamp next to the monitor to finish it all off. You like?
Couldn't resist a new one of Vinnie. I found him sleeping in Maggie and Libby's dance tote bag on Tuesday night, looking even more pathetic and cute than I thought possible. Bless his little heart.
That's it for now!
