The Office

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Today it's a good news, bad news post. The good news is my husband got a new job, the even better news is yesterday he and his new company submitted the winning bid for a contract that he'd won for his old company for the past 8 years - it's karma at it's best. 
The bad news - he's working from home. You know, it's incredibly difficult to get productive with him here 24/7, don't get me wrong, I adore my husband...but...... So in trying to get him a place off of my dining room table I poked around the house trying to find a spot, basement? Nope, not quite finished there plus with the hot tub and all the furniture there's really no room left. The guest room? Plenty big but I dont want any smoking in there. Then I thought about our entryway/foyer whatever you want to call it, it's plenty big enough...soooooooo it was time to rip down the wallpaper (last in this house) and paint.
Here are pictures of the finished project though I still need to get a nice desk and maybe a pretty lateral file cabinet in there, nothing too office-like: 




After about 5 hours, I got busted by Tom taking one of my many breaks (delirium had long since set in):
Now, if he'll just let me be, I've got important projects to complete..........at the Shores

WOW! It is magnificent. Your house looks really, really nice and the red paint just glows from the light through all those windows.
Also, LOVE the pic of you laughing. My favorite pic of you that I've seen. Natural happiness (or delirium) looks great on you, Andrea!!!

Aw, thanks, Susan! This looks MUCH more formal than the rest of the house - well, the rest is just a cozy lake house! I really like how it turned out..as far as my pic, well, I thought it was pretty funny, he came in and found me flat on my back singing at the top of my lungs *giggle*
