A few weeks ago I started working in the office to organize and re-arrange the furniture and then paint.
First up, I moved the desk back in front of the window – leaving enough room in the back for the power cords.
The bookshelf I had in here didn’t have enough storage so I stole to Expedit bookcase I bought at Ikea for the guest room closet.
On the other side of the desk is the short oak bookshelf and since most of the old stuff has moved around I’m using it to stage crap as I figure out where it’s going to go next. Classy, I know.
The shelf that began in the master bedroom and moved to the living room has now migrated to the office on the awkward 5th wall that’s really hard to furnish. The shelf now holds a few bright colored organizers, baskets for my label makers and a handful of binders:
The closet went back to neutral and I covered up the old green color with white ceiling paint. I’m working on adding some shelves for my file boxes and totes but for now they’re just stacked up on one side of the closet:
For awhile I had Jackson’s crate in the office (the biggest one I own) but kept hitting my toe and scratching my legs on the frame. So it went back to the garage and I just used the square dog bed and some blankets and old pillows:
while I really liked the geometric pattern it was just too dark for the lighter paint. Oh yeah, I painted the walls a new custom color from Behr. It came from a wedding invite that I loved and color matched.
Back to the pin board… I tested out a few new fabrics next to the new wall color to decide which one I like best – next time I’ll share which one I chose and how it looks in the room!
