February Before – Office

Today I’m joining Lisa at Shine Your Light for a Before and After party! Basically you post ‘before’ pictures at the beginning of the month and then share your progress at the end of the month.

I decided to pick the office as my February project. I’ll warn you now…the before pictures ain’t pretty!

I took a picture from every corner, so you can get the full effect of the mess!

The plan:
Paint stripes on the walls
Find/sew curtains
Add top trim piece to closet doors
New closet door knobs
Add artwork
Finish painting the desk
Paint/upholster desk chair
Finally unpack “desk stuff” into desk
Organization system
Sell white bookcase on Craigslist
Buy/Build shelves where bookcase used to be
Find small bookcase/shelving system for the closet
Move boyfriend’s old mattress and bed into the garage
Find an armoire for the TV
Donate/trash unused/unwanted stuff

I think you all know by now that I won’t get all of this done by the end of the month. I’ll be impressed if I finish 3 of these! Turn around time isn’t my strong point, but hopefully this challenge will motivate me a little more!

23 days until the end of February! Hopefully I’ve made some good progress by then!


  1. It seems doable. Can't wait to see the end result!

  2. ...and when you're done you're coming to do mine. Because, I am a lazy jerk.


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!
