Now we're WORKING....

Hello all... and welcome to my home office. 1st things 1st, we aren't completely done here. The shelves aren't organized properly and I still need to hang other things on the wall. I also still have to find something to put my printer on. But I wanted to post a couple of pictures.

This is the view from the door. I'm a little disappointed that the color isn't showing up quite as bright as it does in person. I selected Weathered Glass from Eddie Bauer at Lowe's. Please ignore the mass wires, we're still working on that. Can you spot a lil puggie?


On the wall is actually an art piece I did myself. They are all pieces of cards that we received from our wedding. We had tons of cards and I was saving them for some reason. I wanted to make something out of them but I couldn't figure out what.
I used an exacto knife and cut strips, lots and lots of strips. Then did a basket weave with them them and glued them to canvas. It might not be for everyone, but I love it.


And I lil more pug had to get in there....

I'm not finished, but I'm at a good stopping point for a couple of weeks. I still need curtains and to hang more pictures.

I love your office - and I absolutely love what you did with the cards from your wedding! I'm still holding onto all of our cards, but may try to create art with them after seeing what you did.

Pretty office!! I've been trying to figure out what to do with all of our cards from the wedding. Your artwork is a perfect way to still hold on to them, but not just shove them in a box never to be looked at!

Your office is coming along, but I have to say, that is one serious computer screen and phone.

Everything looks great! I love that lamp, and what you did with the cards from your wedding.

That artwork is so cool! We didn't save any of our wedding cards, but now I wish we did.

And big question - how on earth do you keep your two computer screens so damn neat? All our wires are huddled beneath our screens and it looks like a disgusting mess.

LOVE the new office! I may have to copy-cat you on that one! Still trying to figure out what to do with our "office". I also love your wedding card art - very creative!

XOXO-
Sarah

fantastic new space - good job!! I'm eager to start working on creating my own office. Also, what a great idea to do with the cards! I saw a similar DIY project, which means I may have to attempt one of them!
