Office on the Move

I finally had to admit something to myself.  Even though having a separate dining room was on our wishlist when we were looking for our first house, we have only eaten in there a handful of times since moving in six years ago.  On the other hand, Bradley uses his office for doing freelance work at our house every day.  I hated that he was tucked away and secluded so much of the time.  So I asked if he would be interested in moving his office downstairs.  He could have easy access to the kitchen and when I’m home, we can see each other more.  We decided to give it a try.  

We did not repaint this time and we haven’t changed the light fixture, but we did move the bookshelves around to better accommodate his L-shaped desk.  I got his orange curtains up and all of his vintage cameras on the shelves, but we haven’t worked on changing out the art yet.  We still have three large Ikea frames that we purchased years ago for his office, but never found artwork for them.

I wasn’t ready to throw in the dining room “towel” yet, so for now the table and chairs are acting as a crafting table in the abandoned upstairs office.  I bought a wooden folding table for that rare occasion that we would need a place for guests to eat.

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.
