The hardwood floor is now down in my new office, the baseboards/trim are installed and painted, last night Gizmo Guy put up my new drapes. (One day one of my characters will have an adventure in putting up drapes. Hint: when checking the placement of the bracket consider the size of the finial for when you’re trying to put the rod into place, not once it’s already in the bracket.) I’ve pinned up the sheers — the packages on both pair said they were both 63″ long but apparently the sheers, um, stretched? (They’ve since been pinned up so they don’t peek out behind. Though the guys didn’t understand why it bugged me.)

The desk arrived right on the dot of when the company who I bought it from said it would arrive, and I have to say that their delivery people went beyond being helpful. They put felt on all the feet to protect my new hardwood floor and just were so friendly and helpful.  They even suggested I get the power bars so they could put them in place before they pushed the desk into its proper spot.

Didn’t the whole thing turn out purdy? I hadn’t realized just how much, um, detritus I had collected in Gizmo Guy’s office, but it’s getting packed up and shipped upstairs. I finally have storage space of my own, and room to spread out. Yay!

    It’s gorgeous Leah. I love the colour match with the curtains too. Very “creative place” looking. Love the white furniture. Very bright & cheery.

    I agree with Mary, it looks gorgeous. If I weren’t already in the middle of decluttering and cleaning up my office (as well as the rest of the house LOL), your shiny new office would inspire me to do it.

    Enjoy your new office!!! =)

    I’m so jealous. I have a long table to stack things on and type on my PC. Lucky you.

      Thanks, Sandy. It’s taken me years to get to the point where I can have my own office, so I’m really enjoying it. (I’ve had my days of working at a printer stand where I had to sit sideways to the keyboard–my chiropractor loved those days 😀 )

    well done. what a gorgeous space. I have an office that I don’t use. Realized last night it’s because it’s cool. so I should probably buy a space heater and warm it up rather than sitting on my recliner writing with my laptop on my knees.

    you’re an inspiration that comes at the right time.

      Hi Louise

      My office is over the garage so it gets a little chilly–I need to get a space heater too, but it doesn’t get below 60 even on the coldest days, and it’s been nice (so far) so it’s been lovely to work in. I used to write on my laptop in my recliner when the sun was shining (otherwise I’d never see it) but found it difficult to concentrate whenever the family was around. (I can’t concentrate if the television is on, and hubby/sons like to talk when I’m in the family room, so yeah…lots of distractions.)

    Sooooo glad to see this finally happen for you. You’ve worked hard for it and finally GH cooperated like a good son.
    I remember when we were doing the slow video cam a couple years ago, seeing your little shared space. But look at what you accomplished in that space!
    Our offices have certainly progressed though right now yours looks a LOT neater than mine. (shaking finger) keep it that way! or… make it as messsy as you please.
