I started a project in our home office a few weeks ago. Essentially, a complete re-do of the room.
I’d like to go on record to say that, I started this project before I realized I was going to be spending the next 2 1/2 months of my life studying for insurance exams. You see, I thought I’d have time to paint the room, rearrange the furniture, throw together the window treatments, and build a large corkboard calendar for the wall.
I still plan on doing all of those things, but to-date, I can tell you that I have gotten through precisely 1/4 of the above projects.
Anyway, this was day 1 of my project. Picking a paint color.
Here are some of the elements that I am planning to incorporate into the room:
The current progress of the room is – the walls are painted, the furniture is somewhat moved in and arranged and… that’s all folks! I just haven’t had the time to finish up the project.
Normally, this kind of thing would really get to me. I’m the kind of person that wants instant gratification, and I want something to be done thoroughly and completely in one swipe.
But I am trying to turn over a new leaf. I’m going to try and not let it get to me. I’m just going to roll with the punches and pick up the project when I have time. It will get done eventually, right?! ….right?
When I have it ready, I assure you I will share an “after” picture.
Until then, I’m going back to the books to study, and tonight I hope to dream about my new home office – the completed version I have dancing around in my head.
I’m also going to dream about my cork-board calendar project.
I found this project on the Southern Living website. It is called ‘Done in a Day: Wall Calendar.’
I have renamed this project for personal reasons. Mine will be called, “Done in 3 Weeks: Wall Calendar.” Anyone that has an almost 3-year-old in the house knows why this name change was neccessary.
Here’s a link to the project:
Can’t wait to share an “after” picture of my room re-do! Till then, I’ll be dreamin.
