So if you’ve been following our home office remodel, you might have been wondering if we were EVER going to move into the new space. I wondered that myself probably every step of the way. Like any house project, it just seemed to take.for.ever.er. Well my friends, that time has finally come! Yay! Right off the bat, let me forewarn you, moving into our new office is just as agonizingly slow as the remodel, so the photos are not that crazy impressive….I’m not one of those perfect bloggers with a perfect house, that perfectly stages the prefect room, so that I can take the perfect photos to show off that perfection. Nope, not gonna find it here. Sorry, as I have said before, on this blog I keep it real. Really real….I have no problem showing walls half painted, beds unmade, dishes waiting to go into the dishwasher. I don’t know about you, but I don’t need that kind of perfection pressure. I don’t want to fret over getting the fuzzy lap blanket to hang over the couch and puddle just right on the floor, or lining up the fancy glass bottles of water on a serving tray on the kitchen counter. Honestly, who does that in real life? Okay, I’ll step off my soap box now. Sorry about that. So here we go….
We have the necessities done, basically everything that helps us get back to work on this blog, Aaron’s photography website, and my Etsy shop, which requires having desks and main supply storage in place. The wide open desk area on the left is where I create all of my artwork. One nice thing about working with miniatures – you don’t need a whole lot of room to craft them. We still need some extra storage, and naturally the walls need serious decorating help.
I started with a few key pieces of artwork, but as you can see, there is a lot of uneven white space. The room is mostly dark grey and white, so to add a bit of color, I am going with a mix of aqua and green, and turquoise.
In the corner here, I would like to eventually have a comfy chair, where I can sit and hand sew, or Aaron can play his guitar comfortably….
But if I put a chair there, it can’t have any armrests, because they get in the way of play the guitar when playing. So I was thinking something like this:
Beautiful chair! But way out of our budget. But it’s something we could build ourselves.
Aaron designed and crafted the wood guitar wall mount in our wood shop. Maybe it’s something we’ll offer in our shop someday. And last but not least, we moved our beast of a flat file into place in that narrow closet-turned-workstation….
The workstation alcove is a bit underwhelming at the moment, as you can see, we are still unpacking things and we’re trying to figure out what sort of wall storage will be best, if at all, who knows, maybe just some nice artwork would look good. The one thing we absolutely need in there is lighting. What do you think….a single sconce in the center, two one each side, or a small pendant light?
