Welcome to my home office/workspace as it looked a few months ago.
I wish I could say that’s it’s just the first photo that’s tilted. In fact, the room slopes to the point where the hideous orange laminate flooring cracked and split in several places and the leaning tower of Billy (not so obvious in the photo but there is a v-shape between the wall and the bookcase) was actually a bit dangerous to walk past. It didn’t help that it was stuffed to the gills with fabric and books and that I didn’t use one of those Ikea thingys to attach it to the wall.
The wall colour, kind of a wasabi green which changed dramatically throughout the day, was here when we moved in (as was said hideous floor) and I liked it for quite a while. But, I’m a decorator and it’s in my dna to change things so I decided to re-do the space and make it more my own.
So on a really tight budget and with an equally tight space(about 80 sq. feet), I began the process of transforming it bit by bit. It’s an ongoing project; I keep thinking of new things to do or add or change. Maybe never-ending (in a positive way) is a better way to put it!
The “in progress” photos will follow along with some comments on how NOT to remove laminate flooring (in a fit of temporary insanity). Patience was not my friend that day.
