Office – #32

There is a constant discussion in our house as to where the office should be. The layout of  this house is not suitable for an office. We have 4 nice sized bedrooms that are taken up by 5 people. Actually, the master is the smallest but we have 2 closets and a bathroom in ours. We have a nice room for the kids to hang out with their friends and watch TV. We also have a living room for family movies and adults.

Then we have a separate kitchen (small) and dining room. We plan to make one big kitchen-dining space. We finally decided that the far wall in the dining room will be the office space. We have added a couple base cabinets and are in the process of a few uppers for space. There will be 2 works stations. This will be where I can work and where Chris can work on projects. The nice thing will also be that the dining table will be additional space if needed.

I thought it would be cool to add contact paper to the back of the cabinets. Yeah never again…..


I f@*#&$g hate contact paper!! Thank God there will be doors on the cabinets. We did a horrible job. Oh well, you live you learn.

Until tomorrow…

Projects Galore – #28

So the weather is bipolar because today it was 90. I mean seriously! It is May! Chris said I picked the hottest day to work in the garage. It really didn’t get bad until around 2:30.

I have a bunch of unfinished projects I am working on in the garage. Since we are trying to set up the official office, I needed to get to work on these projects. So I laid everything out. Chris took the doors off the cabinets for me and I got to work sanding, painting, and staining. I am hoping that most of these projects will be out of the garage by Sunday night.

I am not going to get the doors painted this week but at least the cabinets will be ready to hang. I can work on the doors next week. I am so excited to see the office!!

Until tomorrow…
