Office Before and After

This is how it looked when we bought the place in 2004.

I had put the job off far too long
You can see the new windows we put in last fall :)

I had planned to paint over the wallpaper but there were too many problems to fix.

Once the paper was down other problems were revealed and had to be fixed.

A coat of primer and base coat of paint and it looked lots better.

This painting technique hides all kinds of problems.

I got the valances made today.

I still need to paint the doors but that will have to wait a couple of weeks.

Mostly I'm pleased with the way it came out. I forgot that I should have cut in the edges before painting the walls and I'm unhappy with the way I cut it in afterward. I stills looks way better than it did before.


  1. Looks wonderful! Great job!

  2. Looks terrific Apple! Very classy.

    So. Are you ready to come help me work on my place now? LOL!

  3. Thanks guys! - I'd love to head to Michigan but it's back to work in the morning :(
