Okay, really, I don’t want you to rate it. I’m just letting you know what I plan on working on over the next few weeks while on my mini break from school.
I don’t believe in unused rooms in a home. I say if you’re paying for the space – use it. When we bought this house it was listed as having a dining room. Well, we’re not really dining room type people – we’re pretty casual and we take our meals in the breakfast nook. So I decided to use the dining room as a library/office instead. We get plenty of use out of the room this way.
The office is currently a putty-gray color with a floral border. Yuck. So, I plan on warming up the walls with the same tan paint that’s in our entry-way, hanging a few pictures on the short wall, buying a few new pillows for the couch, etc., etc. I’m hoping Smoochy will hang a few floating shelves for me too. I’m thinking this room will look considerably better with a little elbow grease and less than $40 worth of paint.
Behold, the before (scroll over pics for my “commentary”) :
