My office: before and after.

I have paint all over me, but it was so worth it! My office was a little dark and drab, so I did a little re-decorating. I got my husband to put in some lighting, which was a pain in and of itself (the wiring in our 50-year-old home is all screwy.) Luckily the man is a whiz at anything electrical, so he got everything working (after many hours of cussing!)



I'm actually working in my office, as opposed to the dining room table!

I love how changing the color of the cabinets changed the whole feel of the room. Wish it was my office :)

Beautiful! If all goes well the next couple of weeks, I may be as lucky as you!

Oh it's gorgeous! The two of you did such a good job that I'm green (haha) with envy.

The painting the shelves white and green makes for a big improvement over the old colour. Can't tell from the photos whether the shelves were painted brown, or just the original wood, but I definitely like the new colours. They look great with your table and chairs.

Did you get the globe light hooked up?

Jenn Ski said...

Scott I called an electrician over to get a free estimate on putting one celling light in and he quoted me $1,450!

Wow...the before photo was actually not bad as it was but the after photo is just awesome. It's so brilliant having your own space just to mess and leave and redesign and love!

Love it, especially the touch of green on the doors.

What is that font you use for the before and after?
