The new home office

It was about time to write again!
So much work, so little time to finish it.
The office took us almost 2 weeks, because all the paperwork needed sorting and this means long, loooong hours of taking out and putting back pieces of paper of all sizes and variety.
As every time we paint, I didn’t calculate the paint quantity correctly, so I was “blessed” with a quick trip to Lowes and back :-), but no harm done.
Here is how the home office looked BEFORE:
The old setting was more of a guest room and home office with this inflatable bed you see. The walls were white, the carpet- purple.
And here are the pictures AFTER:

We painted with 3 colors gray (Olympic paint) – Winter Heaven, Mountaintop and Silver Charm.
The new things we bought are the shelves with the document boxes and magazine holders, the futon ( it is actually from Craig’s list), and the dry-erase magnetic board.

The setting is done by Feng Shui, thanks to my mom, the artwork on the wall is my doing. It is consisted of 9 Chinese auspicious words to bring in positive energy. The words are painted in aquarell colors( water colors )on a white watercolor paper, then glued to a regular black construction paper, and afterwards glued cork squares.

Initially I would have done it in different color scheme, but I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Hopefully I will have the time to cook and post some new recipes( I have tons in mind, just need the time to actually cook them and new camera to take pictures of them). The orthodox Easter is next week, so I will definitely have some sweet Easter breads recipes for you guys :-)!
In the meantime, enjoy your Spring!
