The Office Makeover!

 I'm sorry to always be behind on writing a blog post. My days seem to just get away from me. I guess it's a part of getting old? 

 We were really pleased with the office outcome especially since it was done on a budget. The biggest splurge was with the huge sign my husband bought to cover that big, bare wall!
 So here we go! Before and After pictures:
Big Blank Wall
 
Empty shelves 
The back wall  
 The windows are very tall so we had to solicit the help of our two oldest grandsons. I forgot to get a picture of Bubba. Clayton is the one you will see in some of the shots. He is really good with setting up computer stuff and climbing ladders!

   My husband bought burlap curtains, and I had to cut them off so I just let the hem ravel instead of having to take the sewing machine to school. They looked just fine with a fringe type bottom. 
 Now for the rest of the pics. The big sign was made to match the smaller signs we bought at Hobby Lobby.

 A friend of ours gave us the two chairs in front of the desk, and we bought the other one at Goodwill. 
 It's hard to see in the picture, but he painted the old chair royal blue, and the dishpan gold which are school colors.
The sign I made! 

 And last - the boss giving orders! 

 Thanks for stopping by. Clay is loving his new job as counselor! 
P.S. - I'm loving my uninterrupted sewing time. ;)

You better watch out your uninterrupted time may come to an end as you will be redecorating all the other offices at school! Looks fantastic and I love that it was done on a budget.

Wow! The office makeover sure looks great. You're so lucky to have a capable handyman to do all the climbing and installation. The new wall accent is really amazing too! Thanks for sharing the wonderful transformation with us. I hope you guys are having a great fall season!
