Office space: The Big Reveal!
Do we all remember what I started out with back in December…?
This is my home office so I had to make use of it immediately after moving in. Not too shabby given the circumstances…
Then I drew up a plan to make it better. And blacker…
And randomly one Sunday, I woke up, ran to the paint store, came back, and got to work.
That single quart of Benjamin Moore’s Black Jack was all it took to cover this small office wall. Twice over. Kind of looks charcoal grey in the photo. Intriguing.
Scary and exciting…
You get the picture…
And THAT is how you hang photos haphazardly. Grab a piece of art and a nail, and go! I really love that there is still more space on the wall to add to my personal art gallery.
Drum roll please…
and for one last before/after comparison
Here is the sketch as explained on January 6:
And here is the almost finished product!
I want to spruce up that bulletin board a bit and add window treatments. But I am awaiting higher temperatures before I can paint the trim of the bulletin board. And I’m too lazy and too broke (damn you, fabulous trip to Thailand) to go find window treatments I love.
Anyway, I hope you like it as much as I do! It’s so fun and pretty to sit in here and stare at all day. Which is what I do. At least 9 hours a day. 8 for work + at least 1 for blogging.
Good thing I love it!
