Horizontal Stripes - Office Makeover!

Scraping off border was right up Tobin's alley because he got to stand on a ladder!!!  Nothing beats working on a ladder in a little boy's mind.
What. A. Disaster.  Boy, I wouldn't go back to this for anything!

We taped off 15 inch stripes and used a dark gray and light gray.  I went "shopping" in my barn and found that little stand for the printer (which needs to have a black paint job!), and the desk (CLICK HERE FOR BEFORE AND AFTER!).

Before - view from the addition.  No, my camera lens wasn't dirty.  That's dust!  I think I'm still hacking up drywall dust.

I know my little $2 coffee table is screaming "PAINT ME NOW!!!!"  Any suggestions, readers?? The little bookshelf in the corner is the kid's library.  They check out books and sit on the pillows on the floor and look at them for "ages".  It's so much more fun to look at books in a library. :)

So where the big opening is to our addition was once a window that looked out to our little lean-to laundry room, a cement pad, with weeds and odd wild flowers....  I enjoy this view much better!!!  Pinch me, I think I'm dreaming!
