This isn’t the most glamorous room, but it’s kinda the only DIY project that we’ve done as of late. So let’s just get real life for a moment.
I’ve never shown our home office before because, well, it looked like this. Please excuse the drabness. I mean it is an office after all filled with papers and bills and mail. Ideally, I would want it to look more like this:But c’mon people, is anyone’s home office legitimately that organized and clutter-free all the time? If so, then I’m seriously
Eventually we hope to improve the décor in here, but for now we decided to at least give it a new color. Jamie painted it Silver Blueberry by Olympic.
Even though they say you shouldn’t paint small rooms dark colors, I like it! It definitely feels more office-y. Maybe now I’ll be more efficient. (Probably not.)
As you can see we each have our own desks and separate computers. Jamie doesn’t want to share with me. 😛 The plan is to one day build a desk in the back corner, possibly similar to the one in the above Houzz picture.
I also really want to make some pipe shelves. I think these are so awesome! Like this one. But, man, piping is pricey!We also desperately need organizers of some sort and maybe a bulletin board. Piece by piece it will eventually get there. But remember, this is real life. We have a whole entire house that we’re painting, improving, decorating, etc. It takes time and we can’t do it all at once. But it’s fun to dream up ideas and future DIYs. Am I right?
