Day 3: My Office

This room was a very dark brown when we moved in.  My mom painted it a fun robin’s egg blue (Ocean Kiss by Behr) for me.  She also added matching ribbon to the white balloon shade curtain I picked out.  I decided to make an L shape with my desks and use the long one for  scrapbooking and the short one for my computer and office needs.  My mom gave me the Expedit bookcase from Ikea for Christmas last year.  I love that it could be turned on its side and give me yet another long surface to use while I am scrapbooking.


We took the modern ceiling fan out to go into Bradley’s office and put up a white one that came out of the dining room.  We also replaced one of the closet doors with one from the dining room because it had a small hole punched in it at the top.  I had to take apart the door knob and remove the latch so that the doors would close like they were supposed to, but I puttied and painted it and it turned out well.  Most recently, I added a plant to fill in the corner next to the window.

Wish List:  Reorganize closet to better accommodate crafting materials, add crown molding, and mount a tv in front of the elliptical machine.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
