{Office} Before & After

Reminder to stop by tomorrow link up to show me your finds!! Also are you getting Groopdealz for daily boutique deals yet?! I’m in love.. sorry, its my job to spread the greatness I find online!
Linking up with these sassy gals…

First thing you see when you walk in our house is the lengthy hall leading you past our office and into our living room and kitchen.  The first room to impress people is the office since it is literally the first room after you walk in the door.   For quite a while now we have had what I like to call the “college look” for an office.  The desk we bought at Wal-Mart fitting snug up against the wall and random items filling the empty space.  See what I’m talking about? This is the view any passerby would see through the french doors, open or closed.  ICK!!

I started working at my new job at the first of January.  They sent out a company email letting people know that an auction for office furniture was about to end, so hurry and get your name on your item because this is your last chance!  I got so excited!! I’m somewhat of an office supply junkie and thought this might be our chance!!
Shaka Lacka!!

I was so excited when I got down there to find a nice, heavy wooden desk, you know like grown ups have!? I also saw a fancy chair to go with it and behold a credenza that matched!! I checked the sheets.  Starting bids were $25!  Are you kidding me!?  This is like
I wrote my name down. I didn’t even ask Erik and went down every hour to make sure no one out bid me!! Turns out there was a slight war over the desk and credenza but in the end.. I WON!! Our office is still a work in progress but I finally feel like we have graduated college and are now sporting a grown ups office that
I’m proud to post.

Oh my washi...that craft wall is making me swoon!

We have been in the process of re-decorating Mike's office since January...I would like to point out that I am not the hold up. Spring break next week, so I have my fingers crossed.

I love your new office space :) It looks very adult! I would hate to show my craft room or a room in our house that could be considered an office (it is currently just housing random stuff from when we moved in last year).
Hope you're having a great day!

Looks Great! I have no clue to decorating. I let my mother inlaw and sister inlaw do their thing and they have a "roy wall of fame". a tribute or shrine... but it's okay. It gave my walls character! A real Character!

Impulsive Addict said...

Wow! What a HUGE difference! I love it! Good job on winning the bid! And look at you with a big ol' craft wall! You're so cute! I just love you! And I love you for linking up with us even though I suck as a blogger friend. However, we should facetime again soon--when I have my makeup on! xoxo
