For two years, one of the walls in my bedroom has looked a little like this. (I didn't take the picture until I had masked out the base board.)
This weekend, the wall that leads up to a space of my own got painted.
Last week, I sat down with my sweet hubby for a serious conversation.
"So next year we're both going to be working from home."
"Won't it be nice to get to go out to lunch dates sometimes?"
"Well there's one more thing about working from home that I want to ask you."
"Could I have the office?"
That got his full attention. Barry doesn't use the office much, but it's been his domain. He paused only a minute before grinning and saying "yes".
My own space? Yippy yahoo!!!!!
Now I'm embarassed to tell you that it's been a somewhat neglected space in the decorating department. All of a sudden, I have a new passion for decorating the office, though!
I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't spend (much) money decorating. I'm going to imitate The Nester and shop the house. Low and behold I found some spray painting projects, and I do dearly love spray paint.
There's this chair that I almost gave a way a couple of weeks ago. I spray painted it back and reupholstered it with curtain fabric from my house in Burlington....
And this lamp that I bought months ago at Goodwill. It used to be hunter green, but now it's black. I'm going to spruce up the shade with some new fabic and fringe and then I'll show you the finished project.
Thanks, Honey Bunch, for giving up your space and letting me have it for my very own. Smooches to you! There's going to be some very good work done here!
