As I was dreaming about this room, my husband decided he wanted to partake in the excitement, so we began to envision ways to have a shared office. I told him he had to be creative if he was to use this room. So while he might not do writing, he maybe will do some computer programming. That's the idea anyway!
So I waited most of the summer to get moving on this room project. We had some furniture in there that we needed to move out, and we had to wait until my daughter, also recently married, moved to a spot where she could take some of this furniture. So at the end of August after all the moving and furniture shuffling happened, we started working on it.
|Here's the bedroom after my son moved out,|
and during the time we used it for our Japanese student for a week.
|With the furniture gone, we could paint over the green stripes!|
This is a nice subtle gray color.
Although this picture makes it look puke color.
|Painting is done (and now you can see the gray I' talking about!) |
and instead of replacing the carpet
we bought a cool looking area rug instead.
But we waited. For about two weeks. Then one day, my husband was passing IKEA and decided to drop in and check on the situation. The desks were in! So, we bought them, along with some book shelves, and that weekend, we assembled furniture! So exciting!
|Here's what it looked like after assembling was over and I moved in my computer.|
|And here, with more stuff moved in, a curtain, a lamp and a new chair!|
My husband has yet to personalize his half, so Toto is using it for
a homework station.
And now that means, no more excuses for not writing! I'm ready to go. Nano 2014 here I come!
