I posted about my office in April and it has taken me several weeks to complete it. I thought that I would have this project done in a jiffy NOT!!!!!! I could tell you about all the things that have happened since my last post, but I won't. So shall we begin? This is how my office looked before he makeover. You can see the entire post here . Just in case you're wondering what happened, I am too. I have worked in this ho-hum space for several years in this condition, and believe it or not I use this space daily. What was I thinking? My budget was skinny so the first thing I did was shopped the house. I love this type of shopping, it's FREE! After I had shopped the house, I still needed a lamp for my desk. So, I headed to the neighborhood Goodwill and unearthed this Asian inspired lamp for only $8.96. It didn't have a lampshade but that would be an easy fix. Now that all the shopping had been done ha! ha! ha!, it was time to get down to business.
