How I spent my President's Day "day off"

The seven-year itch. It hit pretty much right on target. We have lived in this house almost twenty years and about every seven years I MUST redo my office. It's weird. I get all antsy sitting at my desk, where I spend way too much time anyway. It becomes an obsession that then requires my surroundings to undergo a change. When we first moved in, my office walls were kind of taupe and the closet (we had taken off the doors and put in a desk top there also) was terra cotta. Next came kind of a grayish-green on the walls and darker grayish-green in the closet. Up until yesterday, the walls were, well, this color, and the closet walls were a paler shade.
This yellow started looking really muddy and depressing to me. Not to mention that my office has become overrun with "stuff." My transcription business requires a lot of stuff on my desk--monitor, hard drive, three printers.

Around the Block Designs business stuff is in the closet. And then there is the fabric.

But change is underway. Here's a sneak peak (and yes, I DID get green paint on my newly painted white ceiling. Ugh!)

You're amazing, Girl. No team of decorators for you - you just push up your sleeves and get to work. You make things happen. I can't wait to see the next picture.
