My Office Update

Can I just say that my husband is AWESOME!!  There is nothing he can't do - if he doesn't know how, he'll figure it out somehow.  We've learned that you can learn how to do anything from videos on YouTube.
He has been remodeling our house - room by room.  He's not fast but he does the best work around, a perfectionist, if you will.  He agreed to fix up one of the bedrooms for me before I move all of my STUFF in. It will be my office/craft room.  He does awesome work and it looks so much better now.  Just a little finishing work to do and then I can move in.

We even got the boys in on the project work - a little demolition work.  They pounded away at the tile window sill and got it all out so Paul can put in a beautiful wood one.

awesome new LED lighting
so much better than the old fluorescent lighting



happy yellow walls
newly repaired and painted


this is an amazing thing - basement hallway has been full of construction materials for about 2 years.
Now its empty, painted and recarpeted!

with new carpet



This whole process has been prompted by wanting our family room back.  We used to have a game room in there, with a ping pong table.  And we want to have that again - in addition we'd love to put a pool table in there with a ping pong top.
So if I get this room cleaned out then we can have a fun game room again.  A place for all the teenagers to hang out.
its amazing how much stuff I have
scrapbooking
sewing
crafts
wrapping paper, bows, ribbons, gift bags

I've spent a lot of time sorting thru all this stuff.
Its been a "cleansing" experience
I've thrown away A LOT
taken lots to the DI
and have sorted out lots of things to file
and figure out what to do with it
Hopefully I'll have a finished new office to show off soon.
