B's Office is Born

Despite the fact that B spends most of his time on his laptop downstairs in front of the plasma TV, he needed his own office to keep his books, files, and to do paperwork and whatever else he does in his office. He chose his office to be the back bedroom with the mini me lock and balcony. Remember:

B's Future Office

And so the work began. Slower than the other rooms, but it finally came together.

First the carpeting was removed...

Then the floors were sanded...

Then B started patching the walls and ceiling...

Then there was paint...

Isn't it amazing what a little paint can do? You can hardly recognize the room except for those blue mini blinds, of course.

Finally, B added his furniture and decorations and, of course, the original small fish tank and an office was born. It looks like he has been in there forever.

B's New Office

The rug is from IKEA during our recent shopping trip when I got my office stuff. The mini me lock? Original to home. It is funny to watch B lock it.

The blinds also came from IKEA. The couch is from my closet room and now the junk room until I get it straightened out. B will probably paint that room, or the dining room, next.

There's B's old desk and lamp, ready for him to work. He even has the chair. B and the desk, back together again.

And there is the original fish tank. This was the tank before the big wooden one that B got. That wooden one broke and was replaced with a new fish tank that B talked about buying stuff for in this post. Pictures of that will come soon.

So what do you think? Big improvement in this room, right?
