I’ve been very negligent about keeping up on recording my progress on projects, that is because often things move so slowly, gathering one small piece at a time that I forget until the room has complete changed. When I last wrote about my office, I had just decided on a rug, purchased a new desk with an unexpected performance bonus, and bought a new touch screen computer. But I still had a ways to go when it came to defining my office space.
I’ve long had plans for what I want up on the walls, but art work costs money and takes time to collect. I decided awhile back I wanted a wall in my dining area to be a large gallery wall. I loved the look of gallery walls I saw online. I thought it might be cool to have a place to really showcase my travel photos.

So I follow Apartment Therapy, which I have rather a love hate relationship with, and yesterday I logged on to facebook and saw a familiar looking picture. I realized that a before/after I submitted over a year ago was featured.
Our second bathroom renovation is going swimmingly. Not only was there less to do in this bathroom, it may not appear that way but nothing has to be done to the shower area this time. Also since it is going to be very similar to my master bath, a lot of the choices have already …
The plan was to start this bathroom after the first of the year. That was the first of 2013… we can see how well that went. Not that 2013 was unproductive, lots of smaller projects got done. My office is pretty much complete, minus a bookcase. Installed a new ceiling fan. I did some work …
An early change that we made to the condo was to transform a wet bar in the former dining area (my eventual office) into something I could actually use. I suppose you couldn’t even call it a wet bar because there was no sink, which just means it was even more of a wasted space.
