I love that Nathan and I thought we might be done upgrading/painting/decorating our house by the end of the year … as in 2012. HA! We had absolutely no idea what it means to be homeowners, and we’re now realizing that all those lofty plans take a backseat to a leaky chimney or a freezing cold house. But like I said in my last house post, I am appreciating all of this and I think taking it slow helps me enjoy the process.
We’re currently on our second room—my office, yay!—and Nathan has been amazing taking my grandiose ideas and making them a reality. Seriously, how did I get so lucky?
My office is really cute but really hard to figure out design-wise. It was an add-on room over the garage, and it has a peaked roof, tiny closet doors and an alcove in the middle of a wall. We decided that wainscoting was a good choice on the walls because you can’t do much with them otherwise. Plus it fit my whole vintage-but-grown-up theme (I just made that up right now). And can I please tell you that Nathan did ALL the woodwork. He is so talented. Here’s his talent in the painting department:
And below, please don’t judge my messy desk. I’ve been working around all the construction.
I’m crossing my fingers and my toes that I will be able to show you the finished product in the next couple months. Can’t wait!
