The month of July is now gone and it's time to move on to another room. Our office looks so much better than it did and I'm satisfied with the work I've done. It's been a super busy month for us with a trip to Florida for me while Anthony was in Georgia and Tennessee. At the end of the month we had Vacation Bible School and a parish trip to New Orleans which sucked up all of our time and energy. On top of all this, Anthony has been busy reading and studying for his Masters', hence why the office this month was completely my project. But we got through it all and are the better for it. It's hard to believe I even had time to paint and concoct a space to get our business done but I did. Decorating and painting is my time to relax...if you can call it that. I love doing it and it's, for the most part, mindless work so it's easy on the brain. Anyways, here are some before and after pictures to document the mini-transformation.
Small changes but everything jives much better and it's so much more inviting, especially when we have to be in there to update our Budgeter or pay bills.
Here's a close up of more "floralizing" I did. I put together the fabric flower on our pillow cover the same way I put together the one on the lamp. Find out here if you didn't read that post.
If you've been following along with our home office project, you'll notice we didn't get everything done we/I wanted - the homemade headboard, a homemade cushion for the window seat, picture frames up on the walls, spiffying up the bookcase, and new "real" closet doors. Those projects will come another day, another month...in other words, when we find the materials we need either on sale or for cheap. We're really excited about August's project in our bedroom, which I'll spill more on later. Until then, ta-ta for now!
