It's Done!

Back in December I wrote about (and posted pictures of) the space my husband was building for me. And now -- It's finished! For the most part, anyway... There's still the trim that needs to be installed inside my office, and well, the outside (my new foyer ceiling) is still just drywall... But I'm in here, and I'm LOVING it. I moved in on January 17th, and since then I've had 2 of the most productive writing weeks I've had in a long while. It feels so great to have a space to call my own, where I can let my creative juices flow. So, without further ado, here it is!

Are these not the best bookcases ever? Problem is, I have more books that won't fit on here...

My lounger. I love to sit here with my laptop. And yeah, it's a little crowded in here. I guess that'll teach me not to buy all the furniture before the room is even done! But I loved everything I picked out and couldn't find it in me to return a single thing!

This is the cool part... That monitor and keyboard there? They're hooked up to a docking station, which I attach (wirelessly) to my laptop. So with one computer, I have the luxury of using it as a desktop with a bigger monitor, or unhooking it and sitting with the laptop in, say, my new lounger.

And this??? THIS is my glass dry-erase board. I have great intentions of storyboarding on here, or maybe just making notes, or... hell, I don't know. But it's cool, huh?    
A closer pic of my bookcase. Thank you, IKEA... :)

And last but not least, the view from my desk... I've put blinds on the window since I took this picture. And come spring, we'll replace it with one that opens (remember this was the window high in my foyer that was mainly for letting in light and for decoration). I really can't wait until we do that. I'm a fresh air kinda girl :)  Through that door is my bedroom, which we're planning on updating so the two rooms will flow together. I suppose that's our next home renovation project! 
So, there you have it. It took eight weeks, start to finish, working mostly weekends. My husband is an amazing man, and so very talented. He poured a lot of love into this room, and I feel that love every time I walk in here.

Hope you enjoyed the tour!

It's gorgeous!!!!!!! Now you're making me want to paint my office purple!

Carly Carson said...

That's an amazing achievement. A found room. The purple looks both relaxing and stimulating. Don't know how but...Enjoy your new space!

Thank you, ladies! While the paint (made by Behr, called Folklore) is definitely in the purple family, it looks a lot brighter in the pictures than it does on the wall. It must be the flash from the camera... On the walls, it's dark and very seductive. Puts me right in the mood to... well, write. LOL.
