Re-did my home office! **DIAL-UP WARNING**
As many of you know, I lost my previous job, but got a new one right away. I decided, as part of the change, to paint my home office. Here are the before and after pictures:

4. Big improvement!
Everything looks so much richer.

I used to always have white walls, but in the past few years I've painted most of the house and I like it sooo much better.

6. It does look richer, doesn't it?
When I first showed MrSeattleGirl the color, he thought I'd gone round the bend, but once it was done, he really liked it.

13. My dear SeattleGirl!
Wow! You could have another career as an interior decorator!

This is really good......

Nothing like new beginnings all over the place, huh?

Beautiful job, sweetie!

Congrats!

14. Thank you, darlin' Peggy!
Actually, my first love IS interior design. But, I veered off that path years ago, so I have to content myself with just doing stuff at home.

And yep, lots of new beginnings. I'm so glad you like what I did to the office! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

16. Thanks. Part of the messiness in the before pics is the
aftermath of having to pack up my office equipment and files from my previous job. Oy! I hate that part.

25. It seems to have good Ch'i

GOOD JOB.

31. Looks great overall
the shelf bugs me with clutter, one or two photo frames could cover the amount of small photos you have.
just saying, but what an improvement!!!! Good Job.

I have a wall the same color in my condo I made and designed the CD/dvd/ wall hanging

41. Wow! Awesome!




You have such good taste in everything around you, from your clothes to your hair and now I see your interior decorating, too. Let's get you incorporated, I think you could give Martha Stewart a run for her money.
