My office - craft - hobby room November 10, 2011 update

I wanted to give you an update on my office.  

Paint color:  Tropical Tide by Behr

My son, Richard, is doing all of the painting and crown molding and it's looking beautiful.

I didn't get pictures of the first color I chose, however it wasn't bright enough.  I wanted bright and cheerful and very turquoise in my office.

I love the color!!!

The crown molding begins.  There is not one straight wall in this house. 

It is beautiful!!!  Richard is doing a wonderful job on the molding.  This is his first time to work with crown molding,   I remind him that wood putty and caulk work wonders with bad walls and ceilings.

My 6 Home Depot pantries are in.  These are stock cabinets.

 Some doors open to the right...some to the left.  I will re-hang the doors when time permits.    

Finally, I will have plenty of storage for my crafts and office supplies!

These are, also, stock cabinets from Home Depot.  My fur-baby AnnaBelle is always with me when I am home.  You can bet I will be getting her a matching bed for my office.  She deserves chic just as much as I do :)

The top over-hang doesn't allow the top drawers to open.  We will be adding a piece of plywood and molding to this. 

There is much more to come on my office.  This is going to be a fun room...MY room!!!

Have a great day........
