Check out the newly painted (but not decorated) office!
Here's a look at the room when we moved in...
We did paint it a dark gray, but I never really loved how it looked.
After the May tornado caused some water damage in this room, we found out we would have to paint it again anyway- and I was happy about that! Once the ceilings were done being painted by the professionals, it was time to paint the walls!
I was mostly nervous that Alex wouldn't like the color, but he did! Yay! We both thought it looked pretty similar to our inspiration photo (minus the texturing).
Alex is also planning to put up some shelves like the inspiration photo.
I still need to do A LOT of decorating in this room, but as you can see we moved our Craigslist Ikea Ektorp chair and ottoman out of the Upstairs Spare Room and into the Office- which might become a Den. Yea, I am just as confused as you are about the names of all the rooms upstairs, but bear with me.
So, the "Upstairs Spare Room/ Sitting Room/ Dressing Room" has been COMPLETELY taken apart...
My Dressing Room just wasn't working for me, I wasn't liking the layout or functionality of the space.
In addition to that room, the Guest Room is also getting completely rearranged.
To help explain, here is our not-so-much to scale Upstairs Floor plan:
What is happening now is what I like to call "The Upstairs Shuffle"
Since the interior repairs were finished up, a lot of the furniture we have upstairs is being shifted around from where it was originally. It's kind of fun (and not fun), but I really want to improve the use and functionality of the Office & Closet Room- like make them actually useful :)
We have a lot of work ahead of us, but with Thanksgiving & family coming quickly we have a deadline to hit- 11/23 "bum, bum, bahhhhhhmmm". I'd love to have the Office/ Den & Guest Room complete since they will be staying in those rooms. So wish us luck! I can't wait to show you the end result!
