Painting Party for One

After grabbing an early dinner at The Righteous Room with my friend Arrie, I headed home to tackle painting my office. While I continue to work during the day, Nick and I have been trying to work on the renovations in my new office at night and on the weekends. The peachy paint isn't so peachy, so I decided to paint the walls a more neutral gray. (The Sherwin Williams paint is actually called "Grayish" which I found amusing.)

The best part of the renovations so far hasn't been the paint, but a cubbie/file/display wall that we're putting in. The fireplace on the other side of the wall created this weird "nook" that could only be one thing in my mind. Since I needed storage for large collages, wall enlargements and framed pieces, I thought it'd be a great place to customize something that would hold these large pieces on the bottom and shelves above for sample albums, information, etc. Here's the progess so far.

The house is old, built in 1947, so none of the walls are straight and there isn't a right angle anywhere, so fitting shelves and all the files have been no easy task. Luckily, I have Nick for that! So as soon as the shelves are cut, I'll be able to paint them and we can finally finish. Well, finish the cubbie. So far, I've only painted one of the four walls. All in due time, right?! I am so excited for it all to be finished. It's going to be great.
