A New Office with a Small Budget, Part 2

Happy Sunday!

Today I'll be revealing my new home office!  To recap from Part 1, my goal was to keep the cost for this room to a minimum, since I'm not positive that this room will always be an office.  Although given the tiny size (6' x 8'), I'm not sure.

A New Office with a Small Budget, Part 1

I recently decided that I needed an office.  You see the thing was, we already had an office... but I had to share it.  We had jammed our very nice, but over-sized furniture into an under-sized bedroom and tried to pretend that it worked.  But it was cramped, cluttered, and became a dumping ground for stuff that didn't have another home.  So, when my hubby started talking about some projects that he had of his own and the equipment he would need to do it, I convinced him that his "studio" needed a large set of office furniture to work on, which left the old office empty and up for grabs.  Sounds devious I know, but if you could see the size difference between the "studio" and the teeny closet of a room the office was in, you wouldn't feel so bad for him.  Really.

The thing is though, even though I can claim this room for now, it technically is a bedroom, and may have to turn back into one down the road.  So, my main goal for my new office was to not spend tons of money on it.

I'm going to stretch my new office out into a couple posts.  This is mainly so that I can show you the little projects without having a gigantic post... and so that I can stall and finish the last couple things before I "reveal" the whole office. :)

Back to the Blog World

Hi Friends!

It's finally spriiiiiing!!  It feels like August in Pennsylvania right now, but I'll take it!  Spring is always a busy time for us, and I don't think we are alone.  As soon as winter starts to fade, I am back to having a million things to do, which is more how I like it anyway.  Especially when most of those things are outdoors.

I'll be catching you up to what we have been up to over the next couple of blog posts.  A lot of this is still in-progress, but I think there's enough of a difference to share.

To hit the highlights of the last couple months:

1. We had our tree taken down in the front yard!  This thing was an eyesore, and was dangerously close to the house.  

So, here's the before:

And here's the after:

I have plenty more planned for the front yard, so I'll keep you posted!

2. I took my PE test, which consumed my life all winter and early spring.  

3. We took a mini vacation to Florida. 

Here are a few hints to the things i have been working on lately, and will be sharing soon!

Curious?  I hope so! :)
