Well, I can't find the true "before" shots, but these will do. This one is from the first showing, so this is how the previous owners used this little downstairs room. That tiny little wall light was the only light in the room, and there was no switch for it. The nasty stained carpet covered a lead-painted floor. The walls were dirty and in desperate need of plaster.
All we did was put our big desk and shelves in the room, and it ended up being a space where stuff tended to pile up.
And voila! Here's how this room looks today. Newly-plastered and painted walls, a new window and blinds, a full wall of built-in shelves and desk (check out our new Mac too!!!), a rug on the floor... This room needs some finishing touches as well, but I already love working in my new office!
