Before and After: The Office

This week is the big move! So many mixed emotions are going on right now as I look at our cute house. Our office has gone through a lot of changes since we first bought the house. It was an office to begin with, then a guest room/office, which was super crowded (sorry guests!), then back to just an office. Here’s the before shot with the previous homeowners’ furniture. Can you tell who lived in this room?

Office BeforeDefinitely a boy. We didn’t have to do much, mainly fill holes, paint, rip out the carpet and refinish the floors. And schlepp around desk after desk, as we’ve been through quite a few.

Office AfterYou can see part of my crewel collection here. There are a lot of other pieces that are on other walls. When we move to the different house I’m going to try and find a wall I can put them on. Right now I have pastoral scenes on display. Check out that American of Martinsville desk. I bought it off a lady on Craigslist for $50 and had to refinish the whole top. Three times. For some reason the polyurethane kept bubbling. Tammy and Austin talked me out of burning it in the driveway but it was sure close. Now I absolutely love it.

What have you guys been up to? Any good finds lately? We’d love to hear about them.
