I'm going to wait to post the real "before and after" shots for after it's really all done - painted and decorated and everything. But that will be a while. In the meantime, I thought I'd post another in-process picture. These are of our office. We ripped up torn and stained carpet, put in a new window, new overhead light... but the biggest improvement is this wall of built-in shelves and a desk. Isn't it fabulous?
We'll be able to have all of our electronics (hard drive, modem, printer...) inside the lower cabinets. We were able to get rid of an extremely large desk, we will now have a great working space that doesn't take up so much space in the small room, and we'll actually have some place to put all our books! Oh, it's going to look so so good! I can't wait to get it all done so I can set things up. (Deep breaths. Patience, Mary. I'm going to appreciate the progress we're making, I promise.)
