When you clean up one room that it turns other rooms into a mini or in some cases a gigantic mess. That is what happened to us this past weekend. I couldn't take the office anymore and it needed a cleaning out, but just don't look at our living room right this minute because of it.
I would love to say that our house was "show quality" all the time, but that is just not reality. It is best friends "only" quality at all times. These are the friends that know and accept the reality of your life. Luckily, we are not like filthy dirty just messy and at times disorganized.
The pics below are the before. Mine is the really messy corner on the left and this is due to our house being a storage facility for our youngest son who is currently stationed in Puerto Rico. Also, before the photos were taken Dan had done a little cleanup too. LOL
We are always on the go and right now 80% of our time is spent upstairs in the office. When you look at our house picture above it's the little barn nest at the top. Quite frankly it is a pleasant little space and it's painted a tranquil grey.
I am really happy how the office space turned out. We have lived here going on three years and we now finally have pictures hung on the wall. Dan came up with the center table from some spare table tops that we had lying around. It's a nice spot to hold our office meetings. I must say he is pretty crafty.
We need a few more pieces for the office space-especially storage and mail station. I think I may have an old cupboard in storage that will get a little re-creating for this purpose. At the time of this blog post everything looks pretty much the same. I love how things went from ugly and cluttery to livable and happy.
P.S. Our furniture is IKEA.
