Office Renovation Part 2...

Yes, part 2, not part finished!  I got my bookcase finished, which made the room look significantly better!  Now I have some finishing projects to do to make the room complete! Those will have to wait until Spring Break though!  I've put off studying all weekend to make a more comfortable studying space, so now I must study! You can see my bookcase midway, and the beginning of my office here. So, without further adieu, here it is!

Just to remind you how the desk looked before:


And here it is with the bookcase!  I need to paint that mirror frame and hang it! That will make the area look less cluttered.


Here's a side by side:

 

This is the view walking into the office.  I plan on building a tall and skinny bookcase to put next to that desk against the bare wall.  I also have a picture project I'm working on that will fill the empty space on the wall in front of the desk.


And here is the area across from my desk/bookshelf.. just my little blue chair and the closet doors:


When I am sitting at my desk, this is to my right.  Again, I'll be putting some picture projects on that blank wall.


And here is a very poor view of my corner desk.. I couldn't move back any further to get a full picture.  That chair will be painted over Spring Break, probably orange.


And a little close-up of my bookshelf and it's contents.. fortunately I only have one more didactic semester or I wouldn't have room for any more books!


Ok.. off to put this room to good use!  Lots of studying to do!  Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Cheers!

  34. Well, the before pic shows that the place lacked oomph. But after the major overhaul, I am totally digging the place. It is livelier and the furniture are pretty well-placed around the home office. That makes it easy for you to navigate around.

Economy Tarpaulins are constructed of strong low-density polyethylene laminated on both sides with high-density polyethylene and have metal eyelets at metre intervals in reinforced hems. These sheets are perfect for situations where they are required to be made of heavy-duty fabrics that will not tear when stretched. They are lightweight and can be used to provide protection for a variety of cargo products that need to be protected from the elements. This high-quality tarp is inexpensive, so everyone can acquire it
