For the sake of normalcy, I wish I could say that we were glued to the Academy Awards on tv tonight. Instead my eyes are focused squarely on the walls of our office closet, getting a new makeover.
In the middle of the night, instead of sleeping like a normal person, the wheels in my brain started turning and churning as I got this wild idea to go in an entirely different direction with our office closet.
Here’s the closet before, when we first bought the house. And how it looked after I completed it’s initial makeover…
Ok, so it looked pretty good afterwards. But I’m not good at sitting still. And now that this is Adam’s full-time workstation, my creative juices started overflowing with ideas and I couldn’t sit still another minute. So we hit the road, straight to IKEA, where all your decorating dreams (on a budget) come true.
My NEW vision for our tiny work closet is going to be:
Something a little more masculine and better suited for Adam, less cluttered (there was a highway of wires back there that drove me crazy), more leg space width-wise, and something more rustic yet stylish overall.
Oh, and that neat old wire light (seen above) is coming down and I’m selling it. It’s $48, that’s what I paid for it at the Remnants of the Past show a couple years ago. The first person interested takes it. Just leave me a comment below and I’ll be in touch.
So here’s how the closet looked after I cleared everything out, just a few hours ago…
And just for fun, and because I’m waiting for the first coat of paint to dry, here’s a 5 year timeline:
Happy Sunday! Hope you have a great week ahead!
PS- What was your favorite part of the Academy Awards? I’m probably going to be painting the rest of the night, so I’ll have to catch highlights tomorrow on YouTube!
