It is finished.
And I have the dry, chapped hands and blisters to prove it...
And I am so thankful to Rachael at Lovely Crafty Home for the kick in the bootay I needed! Click the link below to get to her fantastic page!
This is how the office used to be decorated, when we first moved into the house...
And then it morphed into this...
And then twelve days ago, I pulled everything out and attempted an Extreme Makeover: Our Prairie Home Edition
And so, here it is. My freshly painted, newly organized, totally lovin' it office...
I don't have a picture of the east wall straight on. Why? To be honest, its because my parlor/dining room is a complete disaster still. LOL! Man, what a ride!
So, that's it. I really love it. Every single piece in this room is a personal favorite, so I am surrounded by things that I love and inspire me. Every item was either a thrift store find, an antique store find, something I already had, or something I made - with the exception of the desk chair pillow, the blue-green tray, bird, and reproduction mercury glass on the mantle. Those I scooped up for a steal at T.J. Maxx. All the furnishings I re-furnished myself this week, except for the desk chair and chippy cupboard. I left those as is. All in all... Not too bad for a girl that up until last June had never even attempted to refinish furniture or do any kind of decorating at all. And my house looked like it! ;)
And the best part of it all? I did it all myself! No man help. LOL!
So, now its time to clean the rest of the house that has been totally destroyed over the last twelve days... AND... To start looking at the dining room. But I think I'll give myself a breather for a week or so before I start that. I am TIRED.
This week, I'll be showing a lot of befores and afters of some of the items I refinished for this room. Be sure to check back and see what a little bit of work can do! :D
Have a great day, y'all!
